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.

Being in a very hot and dry time of the year the camping conditions weren't ideal. Lack of proper shade for the camping sites is a major issue. That aside the venue is well maintained and great security. The swimming area was a great relief from the sun. This venue is ideal for larger school groups.

Lovely bathrooms but lack of shade is a mayor failing in the desert.

Ons het twee aande heerlik oorgeslaap en die gastekamers is op 'n baie goeie standaard en baie keurig versier. Gasvrye vriendelike mense.Die terrrein is nog onder konstruksie en ek sal graag eendag 'n draai wil maak as dit eers klaar is.Die Quad bikes wat op die Webwerf geadverteer word is almal ondiensbaar. As jy nie met 'n groepskamp gaan of wil hengel nie, moet jy dalk wegbly.Die enigste probleem is dat Oviston 'n gehuggie sonder 'n restaurant, koffiewinkel en curioshop is. Die aangrensende dorpie is ook maar vaal. Gariepdam se oord en winkeltjies is ietwat beter maar is heelwat km verder.
