Camp Silwane Tented Expeditions comprises of five newly established tents with four placed on concrete foundations and another on raised teak decking. These stylish tents are spaced apart under a lovely forest of mixed woodland of False Mopane and Teak providing shade for those sweltering hot summer days. The camp overlooks a large waterhole which attracts much game and birdlife.
Camp Silwane is wild with no fences surrounding it so guests have a chance of viewing elephants walking past to the water hole, or see the regular group of sable that have made the camp their home amongst a host of other wildlife. It is also likely the guest will hear the rasping cough of the elusive resident leopard padding close by in the evening.
Each tent has its own verandah facing the setting sun, allowing the enjoyment of a private ‘sundowner’ or that early morning mug of coffee when the sky flushes pink and the air is filled with birdsong.
Befitting the ‘lion camp’ each tent is named in tribute after a famous lion of the area; Cecil, Jericho, Mopane, Sidule and the furthest tent, Bhubezi. These tents are very spacious furnished with two ¾ beds with the option of adding a stretcher (or two) for children and are en-suite. Care has been taken to furnish the tents with natural products most of which are handcrafted by local artisans. Sustainable solar energy is used for lighting and to power a fan in each tent. Tented Expeditions is a self-catering camp with a communal tented kitchen, complete with fridge, deep freeze, gas burners as well as crockery and cutlery. A camp hand is available to assist in washing dishes and cleaning. Should guests not wish to prepare meals themselves Camp Silwane can, with advance notice, engage a chef for a minimal cost for the duration of the stay to enable guests to completely relax at the camp.
Each tent has a private braai/BBQ pit in front of their veranda allowing guests to cook over a fire or warm themselves on those crisp winter evenings.
A stay at Silwane Tented Expeditions will provide a comfortable, affordable, action filled experience in a beautiful and ideal location that will become one of your favourite destinations.
