Dave is South African born and from a very early age has been a passionate hunter. Upon
graduation he gained 12 months of practical experience in animal husbandry with feedlotting of
cattle. The opportunity to develop a large game ranch in the Luangwa Valley of Zambia presented
itself and entailed a four year apprenticeship in wildlife management and the hunting of dangerous
game. The knowledge and experience gained by working with some of the best professional
hunters in Zambia was unparalleled. Dave has hunted in Zambia, Cameroon, Botswana, USA and
South Africa. Very much a people’s person, Dave is dedicated to tailor-making your dream safari.
A piece of Africa, set in the province of Peace.
Located at the foothills of the Waterberg, in Limpopo - one of South Africa’s most habitat-diverse and beautiful provinces - Tilodi is the perfect bushveld destination for bird lovers, trophy hunters, tourists or stressed city executives who seek a truly African experience in an exclusive, upmarket environment.
Only a two-hour drive from OR Tambo International airport or Sandton, Tilodi is highly accessible from Johannesburg, but once you enter this pristine bushveld enclave, you will enter the remote heart of Africa.
Let your Tilodi experience become the memory of a lifetime and allow us to be your hosts as you discover and explore this rare and exclusive African gem.
The 20,000 acre private reserve is situated in the far north-west corner of the Limpopo Province in South Africa. The semi-Kalahari prime bushveld terrain is typical of Southern Botswana, residing just the other side of the Groot Marico River. Malaria free and approximately three hours drive from O.R Tambo Airport, your visit is hassle-free. Common plains game on the property is prolific and includes Cape Buffalo, Sable and Roan antelope. The bush camp is well equipped to cater for the perfect safari.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
My experience hunting with Silent Valley was nothing but first class. David and his staff do an amazing job. The accommodations are first class, the food amazing and the camaraderie even better. I took my mother as an observer and it was an experience we will never forget. I cannot wait to plan my next adventure with Silent Valley.
