Imagine a time of the effortless whisper of service, of blazing sunsets melting into the bushveld, of lanterns and railway carriages. The preservation of this memory is the passion of Selati Camp. Here you will find that the stories of the gold rush, steam-engines and the eternal nature of the bush all have their place in the history books.
The camp’s railway theme permeates all areas, from the steam engine name plates, to the lamps that will light the way to your suite, ending with the collector’s items in every room. The nights are warm and quiet, filled with the flickering of oil lamps, firelight, and the stars of the southern sky. Yet all suites are fitted with air-conditioning and the other luxuries of modern times.
Accommodation and Facilities
Draped in authentic colonial architecture, the intimate lodge’s 8 magnificent thatched suites, each with full en-suite bathrooms and private outdoor showers hidden in the foliage of the indigenous trees are a remnant of class and comfort.
The highest standard of opulence is epitomised in the expansive Ivory Presidential Suite. It is a favourite amongst royalty and anyone looking for the remarkable. Authentic antiques, fireplace, secluded veranda and four-post bed draped in delicate fabric create the grandeur for which the suite is renowned. The Persian carpet, chaise-lounge and private pool are touches that complement the antique wardrobe and dressing table in a way that linger in your memory.
An unquenchable romance lives on in the Lourenco Marques Suite, where you will find scented petals scattered on the bed linen and candles lighting the bathroom as you return from an evening game drive.
