Experience South Africa’s glowing sunsets in effortlessly elegant surroundings at Sabi Sabi’s Selati Camp, an award-winning luxury game lodge in South Africa. This intimate accommodation – made up of eight gorgeous suites – is the most unforgettable of all African experiences, offering the perfect place for travellers looking to get lost in the African plains. Carrying an historic theme harking back to the area’s origins as a thoroughfare for a gold-transporting railway line, the colonial charm is impossible to resist; steam engine name plates, signals and shunter’s lamps light the way to your suite containing interesting memorabilia and other collector’s pieces in each room. No detail is spared here and with game drives offering views some of the world’s best choice of wildlife, it’s a photographer’s paradise.
Selati Camp is found within the famous Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, an unspoilt part of Africa in the magnificent Kruger National Park 500 km east of Johannesburg.
