Sabi Sabi Selati Camp is a deluxe safari lodge situated in the private Sabi Sabi Game Reserve in the greater Kruger region of northeast South Africa. This upmarket property sits shaded by trees on the banks of the seasonal Msuthlu River, with lovely views of the surrounding plains and a waterhole popular with wildlife. Along with excellent hosting and guiding, the camp offers seven beautifully appointed, colonial style thatched suites, a swimming pool, and elegant communal areas. It will appeal to travellers seeking a select, traditional retreat with all modern comforts.

Communal areas include an open-sided dining room with indoor and alfresco tables, a cosy lounge furnished with plump sofas and antiques, and a well-stocked bar. There’s an expansive decked area outdoors with seating, perfect for watching the activity at the nearby waterhole, along with a refreshing swimming pool flanked by loungers, and a traditional ‘boma’ for evening meals beneath the stars. Wi-Fi is available, although due to the lodge’s secluded location, the signal can be intermittent.

Activities focus on morning and evening game drives with well-informed, enthusiastic guides, and guided walks which take place in the mornings, to avoid the heat of the day. The Sabi Sabi Reserve is home to over 200 mammals, and its residents include the famed big 5 (elephant, lion, leopard, rhino, and Cape buffalo) along with wild dog, hippo, giraffe, impala, and the elusive cheetah. Birdlife in the area is prolific, with over 300 species identified. Further activities include community visits to local villages, which allow a fascinating glimpse into traditional rural life. Guests are invited to use the spa facilities at neighbouring Earth Lodge and Bush Lodge, a short drive away, and in-suite massages can be arranged upon request.

The accommodation comprises seven beautifully designed, spacious suites, featuring colonial style décor and antique furniture. Each elegant suite comprises a king size bed draped with mosquito nets, and a spacious ensuite bathroom, plus an additional alfresco shower. All units come with air conditioning, a minibar, and hot drink facilities. The opulent Ivory Presidential Suite boasts a four-poster bed and a separate dressing room, and outside there’s a tranquil patio area with a private plunge pool. Use of a private safari vehicle is also included with this unit.

Children are warmly welcome at Sabi Sabi Selati Camp, subject to the property being booked by a group on an exclusive basis. Note that a sister property on the same reserve, Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge, offers family accommodation, along with qualified childcare, and an activity programme for little ones.

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair
