Inspired by the spirit of the trees surrounding it, Silvan Safari invites guests on a journey of rediscovery from its location sprawled across a horseshoe bend on the Manyeleti River. This contemporary sanctuary is found in the heart of one of the continent's most celebrated wildlife havens: South Africa's Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Here, travellers can expect to revive their spiritual link to the earth at this lodge which is redefining the very notion of safari completely.
Sharing unfenced borders with the iconic Kruger National Park, the reserve shares its neighbour's prolific wildlife, too - the Big 5 and over 500 bird species among them. Born to inspire, Silvan Safari accommodates guests in the largest suites in Sabi Sand. Affectionately known as 'pods', each suite is named after the particular tree its design inspiration is drawn from and features bespoke artwork, private plunge pools, and a type of effortless elegance which is unparalleled.
The Ansellia Orchid Spa invites the outside in with floor-to-ceiling windows while the generous lap pool sees traveller's cheered on by passing wildlife. Dining is a tantalising affair from bush breakfasts, Asian-inspired lunches, afternoon high teas, and dinners in an enchanted forest. Meanwhile, the Gin Bar beckons with every setting of the sun, its crystal glassware glinting beneath a mesmerising bee-eater sculpture suspended from the ceiling.
