Sabi Sabi Selati Camp

Sabi Sands Game Reserve, South Africa

Gold price level

Mango Opinion

This is a favorite of many Sabi Sabi visitors. The camp is pleasingly designed with a railroad colonial style that exudes charm. With only spacious suites, Selati feels intimate and exclusive. Sabi Sabi Reserve offers some truly fantastic wildlife concentrations. 

During the 1870’s, high in the crevices of the Drakensberg escarpment which rises to the west of Sabi Sabi, gold was discovered. To transport the gold, the parliament of the Old Transvaal Republic commissioned a railway line from the interior to Delagoa Bay in Mozambique. A branch railway known as the Selati Line crossed the Sabi Sand Reserve.

Sabi Sabi’s intimate all-suite Selati Camp is an unforgettable African experience. It offers the perfect accommodation for travelers looking for a romantic luxury safari lodge in South Africa. Selati is furnished with a historic railway theme and is meticulously created as an authentic home in the bush. The railway theme extends to interesting memorabilia and other collector’s pieces in each suite.

With its classic vintage styling, this exclusive lodge comprises eight opulent thatched suites, each with full bathroom en-suite and private alfresco shower nestled under majestic indigenous trees. World-class cuisine is served on wooden thatched decks built alongside the Msuthlu riverbed, in the open air “boma” or in the “farmhouse kitchen”.

Specially trained, rangers and trackers will take you on safari in open land rovers - both by day and night - and on walking trails, learning about some 300 bird species and 200 animal species, including lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo, elephant and cheetah, tracked and followed off road, deep into the African bushveld - a Nature Wonderland.
