Sabi Sabi’s intimate Selati Camp offers the perfect accommodation for travelers looking for a romantic luxury safari lodge in South Africa. Selati has a historic railway theme and oozes colonial charm. The camp is romantically lit by the gentle flicker of oil lamps and lanterns; and the warm glow of fires under the spectacular canopy of the night sky. Sabi Sabi’s Selati Camp combines turn-of-the-century elegance with personalized safari luxury; a rare experience. It is ideal for honeymooners.
During the 1870s, gold was discovered high in the crevices of the Drakensberg escarpment which rises to the west of Sabi Sabi. To transport the gold, parliament commissioned a railway line to Mozambique. A branch railway known as the Selati Line crossed the Sabi Sand Reserve.
Today the line is disused but the old railbed can still be seen in the northeastern section of Sabi Sabi, close to Selati Camp. 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 has a historic railway theme. An authentic home in the bush. The railway theme extends from the original steam engine name plates, signals, and shunter lamps lighting the way to your suite, to interesting memorabilia and other collector’s pieces in each suite.
World-class cuisine is served on wooden thatched decks built alongside the riverbed, in the open air “boma” or in the “farmhouse kitchen”.
