Are you ready to truly experience wildest Africa?
Do some describe you as adventurous in your quest for being one with nature?
Do you want to be the only guests in this most unique of special places?
If yes, Somadada Platform is for you.
Camp Silwane is delighted to offer you a truly unique experience. A secluded and stunning waterhole fringed by tall trees and overlooking open grassland. This water hole is much frequented by wildlife and is truly a treasured gem in Silwane. Here you can camp and sleep up on the platform placed in the tree tops.
You will experience the sounds, sights and smells of Africa – alone. Your companions will be the shy bush buck, the stately kudu and sable. Baboons will call with a loud bark, alerting to any predators, well aware that the resident leopard is never far away. Herds of buffalo and elephant will visit your waterhole quenching their thirst on those hot summer days and nights. The buffalo will attract Silwane’s dominant lion, Mopane and his Somadada pride, as he walks down the tree line, his roar will shake the ground; and you will know why he is called the king of the beasts.
At night the wood fire will cook your food and keep the animals at bay. Moonlit nights up on the platform are a once in a life time experience that will remain with you forever. Once in your tent up on the platform, the drama of unadulterated Africa, in her full wildness, will unfold. Hyena, elephant, lion and leopard are always present – one cannot drop one’s guard. But you will experience Africa first-hand.
This private secluded camp site is for you alone. We provide a game viewing platform, a cooking area, running water, a toilet, a hot and cold shower utilizing a wood fired “donkey boiler” and should you so wish, a camp attendant will visit you daily.
This camp is not for the faint hearted, but you will experience Africa as only some can dream about.
