We spent 4 nights at Silonque and we had a really nice stay! The lodges are in the middle of a natural reserve, surrounded by nature, which creates wonderful and peaceful atmosphere. Walking around it's possible to meet wild animals such impalas and wild pigs. The traditional lodges are spacious and nice furnished. The staff ist very friendly and helpful...

Wow what a great holiday we have had. Of course nice climate, great location next to Kruger Park, etc. But the staff really nails it resulting in superb hospitality, excellent breakfasts, clean environment and so on. All staff works there for several years what says it all. At our house we had our own outside fire pit and braai for...

This is a perfect stop just before entering Kruger National Park. We arrived after a long drive from Johannesburg and really enjoyed the facilities: relax at the pool, enjoying the sunset on the big terrace and finally going to bed in very comfortable and spacious chalet. The breakfast was absolutely delicious, made and served with love :) Overall the stuff...

We had the most amazing stay in a stunning house set right in the bush, we were pleasantly surprised that we also had our own private hot tub which ourselves and the kids absolutely loved!

I stayed one night on my way to another place, and so didn't hire a car, but the staff collected me from the airport and then gave me a cold bottle of water. A welcome drink at reception was lovely, and then I was driven to my chalet/villa. It was not safe to walk out at night (in case of...

The location is perfect for a visit to Kruger Park. The road up to the estate is somewhat bumpy but well worth it. The villas are very well equipped and spacious. The young dutch couple running it are lovely and very very helpful and they work together with a guide whi os very knowledgable
