Kanyezi Selati Camp

Selati Camp

Imagine the Africa of the great safari era, when blazing sunsets melted into lantern lit romance and service was an effortless whisper.


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.

Today the line is disused but the old railbed can still be seen in the north-eastern section of Sabi Sabi, close to Selati Camp. Sabi Sabi’s intimate all-suite Selati Camp is the most unforgettable of all African experiences. It offers the perfect accommodation for travellers looking for a romantic luxury safari lodge in South Africa. Selati is furnished with a historic railway theme and colonial charm and is meticulously created as an authentic home in the bush. The railway theme extends from the original steam engine name plates, signals and shunter’s lamps lighting the way to your suite, to interesting memorabilia and other collector’s pieces in each room.

Ivory Presidential Suite

Selati Camp’s olde world, romantic ambience is the perfect setting for the sumptuous, spacious Ivory Presidential Suite. Visitors looking for the splendour of a long gone era need look no further. The Ivory Presidential Suite offers colonial grandeur in the form of original antiques, draped four-poster bed, private patio and fireplace.

The stunning en suite bathroom, featuring a Persian carpet and decadent chaise lounge, also features a private plunge pool and outdoor shower. Draped mosquito nets, railway memorabilia from the late 1800’s, antique dresser and the gentle glow of oil lamps all combine to make this an exceptional suite.

Visitors from all over the world have enjoyed the luxury and pampering that comes with a visit to Ivory Presidential Suite and includes a private private open safari vehicle.

Lourenco Marques Suite

Selati Camps romantic ambience is never more palpable than in the beautiful Lourenco Marques (LM) Honeymoon Suite, where every detail is carefully planned for a memorable stay.

A king−size bed, draped with soft mosquito netting, dominates the suite, and perfectly offsets the luxuriant linens, antique furniture pieces and richly textured drapes. An en−suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor baths and showers is a place for relaxing and pampering after an exhilarating safari.

Couples celebrating special occasions are treated to every indulgence − champagne bucket, in−suite dining, petal-strewn bedroom.

The suite and bathroom look even more enchanting when lit by dozens of candles against the backdrop of the dark African night.
