With a nod to the great Southern African safari of yesteryear, Sabi Sand Game Reserve’s Selati Camp is a luxurious game lodge that combines colonial era romance with all the modern amenities that are necessary for a truly wonderful safari experience. During the 1870’s in the Drakensberg escarpment that sits to the west of Sabi Sabi, gold was discovered. To transport this gold the Selati line railway was built, which crossed through the Sabi Sand reserve on its way to Delagoa Bay in Mozambique and today, this disused rail bed can be seen from the Selati camp.

Steeped in history, Sabi Sabi Selati Camp is a romantic tribute to that era and is the perfect destination for honeymooners and anyone looking for a touch of colonial charm. As a luxurious home away from home, Selati has a railway theme, which extends from the original steam engine nameplates and signals in each room, to the lamps that light the way in the evening. Originally created with no electricity to maintain the ambience, Selati now has air-conditioning and all the modern necessities one would expect from a luxury lodge.Read More

Made up of eight well-appointed, thatched suites, each one has its own opulent bathroom with indoor and outdoor shower. Modern conveniences such as electric sockets and air-conditioning are a welcome addition. Mouth watering cuisine is served on wooden thatched decks that sit alongside the Msuthlu riverbed, in the open-air boma or in the farmhouse kitchen.

Early morning and dusk game drives are taken in open vehicles in the company of trained and passionate game rangers and trackers. During these drives they will take you deep into the reserve on the look out for Africa’s famed Big Five, as well as the other varied plant, bird and animal life that flourishes in the area. After breakfast guests can take a bush walk into the bushveld, where trackers will give you a chance to get acquainted with the some of the smaller aspects of the surrounding habitats.

Sabi Sabi’s Selati camp is a unique combination of old-world elegance and natural charm, guaranteeing a truly memorable safari experience.
