Sabi Sabi Selati Camp reveals its 7 exquisitely refurbished suites

Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve’s Selati Camp, in South Africa’s Sabi Sand Reserve, has unveiled a new look, with the refurbishment of its exquisite seven suites - the epitome of vintage style and effortless elegance, capturing the ‘Yesterday’ of Africa.

A celebration of the 19th century grand steam train era, the intimate lodge has been long-admired for its authentic style. Each suite has been lovingly refreshed whilst retaining all the charm with luxurious touches.

Intelligent remodelling provides an inviting retreat. Oversized mosquito nets, swooped back with woven grass ring holdbacks, drape billowing beds. Muted earth tones are complemented by matt black and antique brass detailing. An artfully manufactured solid Kiaat timber and metal server, neighbours a custom-made sofa with steel frame and leather belt details. Original antiques, lovingly collected from across the country, add to the atmosphere of the refurbished accommodation.                                                   

Tactile leather brings warmth, found in the antique leather suitcases, straps and a centre-piece leather ‘curtain’ which separates the living area and en-suite bathroom. Accents of steel, marble and mirror frame the bird-cage shower structure in the centre of the round room.   

Floor to ceiling glass doors lead to a private outdoor space. This hidden sanctuary offers a deep stone bath and open-air shower, to cool off from the heat of the day or relax under a blanket of stars in complete seclusion.

The romantic elegance of the lodge is further complemented by the renowned warmth of the Sabi Sabi staff and their effortless hospitality, making Selati Camp the ideal hideaway.
