experience yesterday, today and tomorrow
For decades Sabi Sabi has enthralled the world, imparting its love of wildlife conservation to visitors and establishing a near-unparalleled luxury experience in the heart of the African bush. An experience it has recently taken to new heights.
Within its vast and wildlife-rich land, Sabi Sabi has created three unique worlds: one of yesterday's colonial romance; today's classic bush experience; and tomorrow's African Renaissance.
From times gone by, Sabi Sabi offers Selati Camp, reminiscent of a bygone era, infused with artefacts, vintage decor and an old world charm. Nights are illuminated solely by oil lamps and the stories from the Camp's rangers and staff. Selati's beautifully appointed suites offer intimacy with a dash of colonial opulence. The smallest and most intmate of Sabi Sabi's three lodges, Selati conjures up images of a time when life was a little slower, a little gentler and a lot more romantic. Visitors return time and again to languish in Selati's dreamy, evocative atmosphere.
The 'today' experience is found at Bush Lodge, which remains a firm favourite with visitors looking for a more vibrant and companionable visit, famed for its warm, convivial atmosphere and immaculate service. In its 25 years, the Lodge has hosted presidents and kings, and people from almost every nation on earth - all treated to the same legendary service that has made Bush Lodge a world classic.
Earth Lodge represents the future in the form of a unique haven nestled in the bush. Complete with Zen garden and minimalistic design, the Lodge is a glimpse of the African Renaissance, and forward thinking conservation. Its organic architecture literally merges with the environment, creating an earthy vitality that pervades every room. Earth Lodge, however, is also on a spiritual mission: to rekindle its guests' bonds with the earth. Along with its spa, Earth Lodge is designed to give guests a feeling of seclusion and privacy. It is, quite simply, a luxurious wilderness retreat, and a world first, breaking from the traditional style of lodge to set a new standard.
"The philosophy behind the 'yesterday,today and tomorrow' concept is simple and stems from Sabi Sabi being able to offer over a 100 years of safari experience to guests," says Sabi Sabi MD, Patrick Shorten.
"While each lodge is unique in style, they all offer the warmth and true African hospitality - qualities that are synonymous with Sabi Sabi."
