Silver Hill Lodge is a Wildlife Sanctuary, a privately owned estate situated in the beautiful Kamberg Valley of the Central Drakensberg with no less than 7 endangered species. It is a mere 35 minutes from Nottingham Road and Mooi River. The Little Berg mountain range, with Mount Cleopatra, Mount Erskine and Mount Lebanon provide the awesome backdrops of the estate.
This area is famous with Nature Lovers, Hikers and Fisherman alike, and if you simply enjoy the peace and tranquility of the mountains, then visit our paradise. There are many activities to keep the energetic going and for the more relaxed to simply sit and absorb the surroundings is awe-inspiring. Enjoy trout fishing in our dams or in rivers and streams that run abundantly through the estate. Small waterfalls cascade in the higher grounds of the mountain slopes and little springs pop up in unexpected places.
There are five dams on the estate and a wetland. The estate also boasts its own mountain and natural forest. Have a picnic or sundowners on the banks of the river, around a wood fire. Enjoy the sounds of the river gushing over the rocks into rock pools. In summer this is a fun spot for a quick dip to cool off or swim. Take a stroll down to our wetlands or along the many trails on the estate.
A hike up the mountain will lead you to breath taking views of the Kamberg Valley. Along the way there are numerous types of Flora and Fauna, animal life, buck and Eland to look out for. Also resident in the higher lying regions of the mountains are the Mountain Baboon.
