Selati camp was inspired much by the area’s history. The suites, each named after long forgotten railway stations, are intimate and comfortable with Out of Africa style. You will love the cottage hideaway resort design. It becomes even tremendous when nights at Selati retreat home are illuminated by the glow of authentic shunters lamps and lanterns. Timeless ornaments are beautifying the cozy lounge. Armchairs scattered all over the resort’s pool. It’s a mesmerizing indigenous resort house and i will love to spend my holiday here someday.
Here’s a little history on this gorgeous indigenous retreat house:
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.
