Silver Forest is set among lush gardens and forest-like surroundings. While sitting poolside, you will often be entertained by the social conviviality of the Cape Sunbird and Sugarbirds. Watch entranced as they flit among the leaves of the Cape Honeysuckle, or find their way to the higher branches of the grand old Oak tree, that holds centre court. Sip sparkling wine or relax with a pot of tea as the South African sun warms your soul and the calmness eases your mind.
In the cooler months, take advantage of the welcoming glow of your own wood fire stoves in your garden or forest suite, to cuddle in front of, savour the taste of fine red wines or surrender to a deep and peaceful sleep.
