About Siloam Village

Siloam Village is situated at Lake Gariep, a water sport enthusiast’s paradise, stretching 90 km in length and 374 km² in size. The lake offers sailing, jet skiing and power boating.

We are situated on the Eastern Shore of Lake Gariep, at Oviston Nature Reserve, not inside Gariep Dam. We are approximately 30 minutes from the highway. The Gariep Dam is located inside the Nature Reserve, and access to the shores of the dam is through the reserve gate. Guests can however walk from our establishment to the dam. Access through the nature reserve is free.

There are no nearby restaurants, however meals can be arranged at Siloam Village with prior notice. Dinner is at a cost of R 95.00 per person, Breakfast is R 55.00 per person and lunch is R 60.00 per person. There is a small shop opposite Siloam Village that sells very basic necessities and groceries.

The remarkable Gariep Dam in the Karoo is the biggest catchment of fresh water in South Africa. Those seeking a more tranquil and laid-back break will find Siloam to be a great escape that is reasonably priced. If your ideal holiday is a combination of lazing around, fishing and exploring a nature reserve, this is the place to stay. We have boats for hire if you want to explore the dam or fish.

Very neat and tidy. We camped during our visit. Bathrooms a pleasure to visit only small negative there is not really a place to put your clothing and toiletries down outside the shower. The animals on the property are well cared for, althought the water was very dirty I think it is was more due to end of year and staff was on leave for for New Year. Thank you we had a good one night stay and staff was very friendly.

Enjoyed being able to relax en-route to Cape Town. Also enabled an opportunity to travel thorough the smaller towns we would have missed staying on the main routes

Was a bit farther than expected. My suggestion for the Ribbok chalet is that it needs a second bathroom as it sleeps six people. The room has a pleasant bathroom but is open plan which makes it difficult for the other guests to use. We had my sister with us and it was a bit uncomfortable sharing an open plan bathroom, this chalet is fine for 2 adults and their small children. The meal was fair but the resort does not seem geared up for more than four guests at a meal sitting. There was also no red wine on sale but luckily we had our own. We found the staff were very friendly and helpful and...
