The name of this lodge is in honour of the Selati Railway Line that was once used to transport gold from the interior to Delagoa Bay in Mozambique. This railway line crossed the Sabi Sand Reserve in the 1870’s, and although it is not used today, the old railway bed is still present nearby the Selati Camp. The legendary history of the area is the inspiration behind the camp’s magnificent décor that makes use of original steam engine artefacts, as well as authentic shunter’s lamps that light the way to the guest suites. Each of the luxury suites are uniquely adorned with stunning memorabilia and collector’s pieces. This creates a very different experience to any of the other safari lodges in the area.
Eight ‘Out of Africa’ style suites feature full, en-suite bathrooms with private alfresco showers, air conditioning and a host of additional luxuries. They are all beautifully decorated to match the camp’s exquisite surroundings and wonderful history.
The Lourenco Marques Suite is a must for honeymooners or the romantic at heart. Whether it is the fragrant flower petals strewn on the exquisite bedlinen, or the candles illuminating the bathroom on return from the evening safari, a stay in this romantic suite will always be remembered.
Selati Camp’s olde-world, romantic ambience is the perfect setting for the sumptuous, spacious Ivory Suite. Visitors looking for the splendour of a long-gone era need look no further – the Ivory Suite offers opulence in the form of original antiques, draped four-poster bed and private patio.
The stunning en-suite bathroom, featuring a Persian carpet and decadent chaise–lounge, also features a private plunge pool and outdoor shower. Draped mosquito nets, railway memorabilia from the late 1800’s, antique dresser and the gentle glow of oil lamps all combine to make this an exceptional suite.
Fashioned in a colonial “Out of Africa” style, this exclusive lodge comprises eight opulent thatched suites, each with full bathroom en-suite and private alfresco shower nestled under majestic indigenous trees.
The Sabi Sabi philosophy of ‘yesterday, today and tomorrow’ stems from over 100 years of safari experience. South Africa and its warm hospitality echo through the style and flavour of each and every one. ‘Something special is happening deep in the heart of the wilderness…’ The reserve is home to the ‘Big Five’ (elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and buffalo), as well as cheetah, wild dog and hundreds of other species of animals, birds and plants indigenous to the area. Highly trained and experienced rangers and trackers ensure that your safari experience ranks amongst the best in the world. You can look forward to fantastic close-up experiences with Africa’s wildlife on every game drive.
Game drives are conducted in the Sabi Sabi Reserve, a recognised ‘hot spot’ of biodiversity which makes for an astonishing variety of wildlife – including over 200 mammal and 300 bird species. Unforgettable day and night safaris are enjoyed in open Land Rovers with close encounters with the Big 5 being a regular occurrence. Environmental awareness walking safaris add an extra dimension to the bush experience, allowing a close-up look at the fascinating smaller creatures of the bushveld.
