Selati Camp

Selati Camp

In keeping with Sabi Sabi’s trademark of “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow,” the undeniably romantic Selati Camp perfectly embodies the magic of the “Yesterday” experience. Imagine “Out of Africa” with every luxurious touch. The nearby railbed formerly used to transport gold inspires the décor with touches such as antique trunks, original steam engine name plates, signals, and shunter’s lamps that light the way to private thatched suites.

Eight sumptuous retreats feature en-suite bathrooms, private outdoor showers, opulently draped beds, and panoramic views. The Ivory Presidential Suite, a favorite choice of kings, queens, and the most discerning travelers offers colonial elegance, original antiques, Persian carpet, fireplace, separate dressing room, private terrace, and plunge pool.

The Lourenco Marques Suite is a favorite of honeymooners for its exquisite linens, candlelit elegance, and petal-strewn bed. Gourmet fare is served in the open-air boma, in the farmhouse kitchen, or on decks overlooking the Msuthlu riverbed. The camp’s quiet grandeur combined with a personalized safari experience provides guests with lifelong memories.

Selati Camp lies in the Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve, a wilderness oasis in South Africa’s world-renowned Kruger National Park. The “big five” roam freely, offering safari-goers the experience of viewing these mighty creatures in their natural environment. In addition to rhino, elephant, lion, leopard, and buffalo, the area is home to cheetah, wild dog, hyena, over 350 bird species, and over 200 other animal species.

With diverse habitat and expansive space to roam, the indigenous wildlife wanders without fear of human intrusion. Professional guides and trackers contribute their knowledge and experience to every game drive. Guests marvel at the unmatched opportunities to explore the wild African bushveld during the morning and evening safaris. These take place in open Land Rovers, while other more intimate opportunities for animal viewing are offered during guided bush walks.

In addition to providing the safari trip of a lifetime, the camp’s dedication to conservation is an integral part of its mission. A carefully crafted and constantly updated Habitat Management Plan includes initiatives such as pumping water, clearing encroached grasslands, maintaining roads, eradicating alien species, and disposing of waste-water. In fact, the success of Sabi Sabi’s wetland program won the Imvelo Award for the best practice in conservation. Knowing that their impact on this unspoiled wilderness is extremely minimal, guests can enjoy every moment of their unique safari experience.
