GRAND TRAVEL STYLE LODGE

Selati Camp is a colonial-style luxury thatched lodge in the north of Sabi Sabi where a railway line was built to transport gold from the Transvaal to the coast at Delagaoa Bay. The old railbed is still visible, and the Selati Line gives the lodge its name. Its design harks back to that era.

EXCELLENT DRIVES & WALKING

Game drives and walks take place using the full extent of Sabi Sabi’s large corner of the Sabi Sand region. It is close to the Sabie river, making for excellent year-round game.
