This is what dream holidays are made of, what a phenomenal place. The houses are luxurious, clean, the best linen I've slept on in a long time I cannot write enough praises for this place! If I could live here I would- don't think I'll like the summer bugs though. To everyone who makes Silonque what it is, I take... More

This place is 2.5 stars or 3 stars at best, and for 2.5 stars it's great. However it is not 4 star as advertised. For example: burnt out ashen candles on table, broken faucet, leaky geyser, dirty cheap furniture, no cushions for outdoor furniture, no basic kitchen needs like paper towels or cooking oil.

Laura and Pascal and all staff very friendly and enthusiastic. The single bedroom chalets are attractive, private, comfortable and one of ours came with a beautiful, typically African bath. Kitchen facilities excellent. The pools are secluded and relaxing. There is a stretch of unpaved road to get to Silonque but it was easily doable in our 2WD sedan and we... More

We stayed there for (only) two night, but they where great! It's situated near to Phalaborwa (about 15 drive into the bush); the staff welcomed us very friendly and brought us to "our" house! The house was great, we had a huge terrace and a lot of privacy as the other houses are close but a bit away. We were... More

After a week in Kruger we booked one night at Silonke. Little did we know that our wildlife experience was far from over! Silonke is at the border of Kruger surrounded by bush and wildlife. The managers, Pascal and Laura, are super friendly and took the time to drive us around the grounds to enjoy the wildlife. Accomodation is spacy... More

We spent one night prior to driving into Kruger at Silonque Bush Estate. We had an absolutely lovely stay – in particular, Laura and Pascale were extremely welcoming. We were offered coffee (Nespresso, not instant) on arrival and they took us on a short drive for sundowners. We stayed in a one bedroom cottage that was beautifully appointed. There was... More

We recently stayed at Silonque Bush Estate while touring the KNP. The estate consists of houses that have been built on a reserve next to KNP fence. We stayed in a one bedroom house that had small kitchen (with cutlery and crockery), TV (DSTV) and wifi (it was great getting away from cellphone reception). Units are serviced as well. As... More

Thanks for taking the time to write such nice things about us! It is getting warmer again, so during your next visit you will definately be able to jump into the pool. You were also here in a cold week, the rest of the winter was still nice and warm, mostly between 25-30 degrees (during the day). The elephant that... More

Nice cottages to stay with a variety of wild animals on the area. Parkground is situated nearby Phalaborwa with lots of facilities to dine. No restaurant on the area, but facilities available to organize by your own including braai.
