Sabi Sabi Selati Camp

Sabi Sand Wildtuin

In the fading light of the late 19th century, the Mpumalanga lowveld witnessed the emergence of its first railway lines, constructed to transport gold from Phalaborwa to Lourenco Marques in Mocambique. Along the Selati Line, passenger trains would make their slow journey to Newington Station, where long ladders were provided by the railway company for the safety of travelers, protecting them from the prowling lions in the area. Drawing inspiration from this historic era, the magnificent Selati Camp comprises seven exquisite suites, each named after long-gone railway stations, offering a glimpse into the grand steam train epoch. Authenticated memorabilia from railway museums and storerooms is artfully integrated into the 5-star lodge’s decor. The Ivory Suite stands out as a splendid presidential suite, featuring a four-poster bed, a spacious bathroom, a private plunge pool, and elegant antiques. In addition to these luxuries, the suite includes a private safari vehicle and ranger, ensuring an exclusive and personalized safari experience. Nights at Selati Camp are romantically lit by the gentle glow of authentic shunter lamps and lanterns. The cosy lounge is adorned with reminders of times past, while memorable dinners take place in the outdoor boma under the twinkling African sky or in the intimate “Farmhouse Kitchen.” Armchairs surrounding the sparkling pool or on the covered wooden viewing decks offer perfect spots to observe wildlife coming to drink at the nearby waterhole. Tucked away under the shade of towering riverine trees, Selati Camp is a paradise for safari enthusiasts. Game drives within the Sabi Sabi Reserve, known for its incredible biodiversity, promise thrilling encounters with over 200 mammal species and 300 bird species, including the iconic Big 5.
