Silwane Tented Camp offers catered accommodation in a camp comprising of seven en-suite tents. Four of these spacious tents are placed on concrete foundations and three 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 grasslands and a waterhole which attracts wildlife.
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 veranda 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; Mpofu, Judah and Cecil all on teak decking. Jericho, Mopane, Sidule and the furthest tent, Bhubezi on concrete foundations. These spacious tents are 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. Silwane Tented Safari Camp offers guests a comfortable and fully catered experience.
Meals and sundowners are enjoyed at leisure on the raised teak dining area overlooking the grasslands with a good chance of seeing wildlife. On hot summer days guests can cool down in the swimming pool in front of the dining platform. In the evening guests enjoy relaxing around the pit fire by dining platform watching the stunning sunsets giving way to the brilliant star studded night sky. There is always the likely chance of seeing elephants drinking at the nearby water trough.
Silwane Tented Camp also offers the option of guests self-catering in a shared and equipped kitchen facility.
Each tent has a private fire 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 Camp will provide a comfortable, affordable, action filled experience in a beautiful and ideal location that will become one of your favourite destinations.
