Sabi Sabi Selati Camp

Award-winning Selati Camp is named after a railway once used to transport gold mined in the Drakensberg escarpment to the west of the reserve upon which this luxury safari lodge sits. The historic railway theme carries through the main lodge and the 7 exclusive suites, which are decorated with antique lamps, steam engine name plates and signals.

At night, the camp is still lit by flickering lanterns and fires. Each of the thatched suites are set beneath thatched roofs and feature outdoor showers nestled under a thicket of native trees. The Presidential Suite has a canopied bed, private fireplace and plunge pool, whilst there is a very romantic honeymoon suite where flower petals are often found strewn over the bedlinen.

Activities at Selati Camp include morning and evening game drives in the extremely biodiverse Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve, which shares an unfenced boundary with the world-renowned Kruger National Park. All of the ‘Big 5’ reside here, along with wild dog, cheetah and over 300 bird species. As hunting has been banned here for over half a century, all wildlife in the reserve are habituated to the presence of safari vehicles – they go about their daily business as if humans simply weren’t there, making for some delightful gameviewing experiences.

South Africa Overview

Why South Africa: Described as “a world in one country” South Africa is more than just a safari destination. The wildlife of Kruger and the many private reserves throughout the country are complemented by South Africa’s fascinating history and diverse cultures, the beautiful coastline and majestic landscapes of the Cape.

Game Viewing: Gameviewing is best during the dry season (May-Oct); however the summer months are good for general touring and sightseeing.

Culture: Many different cultures including Zulu, Swazi, Xhosa, Indian, Cape Malay and European. A unique cuisine, as well as distinct music and dance. Elegant Cape Dutch architecture.

Climate: The inland plateau has a temperate climate (17°-30°C), whilst the coast is subtropical and more humid (22°-30°C). The seasons are the same as Australia, however most of the rain falls in summer. Winters are dry and sunny, but nights can be very cold. The Western Cape is the exception, with a “Mediterranean” climate – cool, wet winters and warm dry summers (17°-24°C).

Combine With: South Africa is easily combined with neighbouring Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Mozambique, Zambia or the nearby tropical island of Mauritius. Johannesburg is a very popular gateway to most of southern and eastern Africa.

Getting There: Many major airlines including South African Airways, Qantas, Etihad, Emirates, Kenya Airways, Qatar, Singapore Airways and British Airways fly into Johannesburg. There are also many regional airlines such as Air Botswana, and domestic carriers that service local cities such as Cape Town and the Kruger National Park area.
