Sabi Sabi Selati Camp

Sabi safari, Kruger National Park

Sabi Sabi’s intimate Selati Camp is the most unforgettable of all African experiences. It offers the perfect accommodation for travelers looking for a romantic luxury safari lodge in South Africa; making it ideal for honeymooners. Selati is furnished with a historic railway theme and colonial charm. It is meticulously created as an authentic home in the bush.

Originally created without electricity to preserve the ambiance; Selati Camp has now installed overhead fans, air-conditioning, and all the trimmings expected from a luxury safari lodge. Under the spectacular canopy of the night sky; the camp is still romantically lit; by the gentle flicker of oil lamps and lanterns; and the warm glow of fires. Sabi Sabi’s Selati Camp combines turn of the century elegance with personalized safari luxury; a rare experience.

World-class cuisine is served on wooden thatched decks built alongside the Msuthlu riverbed; in the open air “boma” or in the “farmhouse kitchen”.

Sabi Sabi Selati Camp is part of the Sabi Sabi collection of luxury safari lodges in the Sabi Sand Wildtuin. All the Sabi Sabi lodges; Sabi Sabi Selati Camp, Bush Lodge; Little Bush Camp, and Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge are unfenced. With no fences between Sabi Sabi and the other reserves in the area; in particular; the Kruger National Park; wildlife roams freely, giving guests the ultimate safari experience.

Booking a safari in the Sabi Sand Reserve needs to be done well in advance; due to its popularity and relatively limited accommodation. It is the most popular area to stay in the Greater Kruger National Park due to its phenomenal wildlife sightings; in particular; leopards.
