Sabi Sabi Selati Camp

Award-winning Selati Camp is named after a railway once used to transport gold, and this historic theme carries across this safari lodge.

Award-winning Selati Camp is named after a railway once used to transport gold mined in the Drakensberg escarpment to the west of the reserve upon which this luxury safari lodge sits. The historic railway theme carries through the main lodge and the 7 exclusive suites, which are decorated with antique lamps, steam engine name plates and signals.

At night, the camp is still lit by flickering lanterns and fires. Each of the thatched suites are set beneath thatched roofs and feature outdoor showers nestled under a thicket of native trees. The Presidential Suite has a canopied bed, private fireplace and plunge pool, whilst there is a very romantic honeymoon suite where flower petals are often found strewn over the bedlinen.

Activities at Selati Camp include morning and evening game drives in the extremely biodiverse Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve, which shares an unfenced boundary with the world-renowned Kruger National Park. All of the ‘Big 5’ reside here, along with wild dog, cheetah and over 300 bird species. As hunting has been banned here for over half a century, all wildlife in the reserve are habituated to the presence of safari vehicles – they go about their daily business as if humans simply weren’t there, making for some delightful gameviewing experiences.
