Exploring an Eternal bond with Selati Camp

on Nov 28, 2023

An Ode to the Classic Safari Era

Step into Selati Camp and find yourself transported to an era where the wild expanse was once an uncharted frontier. This classic safari experience pays homage to the enduring bond between humans and the wilderness, reminiscent of the first explorers who ventured through this part of Africa aboard steam trains. 

Embark on a Historical Journey

Guests are greeted with citronella-scented hand towels and a refreshing rock shandy in a reception area adorned with railway memorabilia and antique writing desks - a nostalgic tribute to a time when adventurers meticulously documented their encounters with the wild. Sitting at these very desks, one can almost sense the echoes of inked narratives from days gone by. 

From expansive wooden decks elevated to capture panoramic views, spend your afternoons in the comfort of the outdoor lounge, honing your bird-watching skills while watching herds of animals quench their thirst. Cool off in the sparkling pool in the heat of the day, and then enjoy an al-fresco lunch shaded by Jackalberry trees.

Indulge in Opulent Comfort

The Luxury Suites, bathed in natural light, seamlessly blend history with modern comfort. Thatched roofs of savannah grass exude simplicity and elegance, complemented by draped mosquito nets, vintage memorabilia and eclectic décor pieces. 

The Lourenco Marques Honeymoon Suite is a cocoon of old-world romance, whilst the expansive and opulent Ivory Presidential Suite is rooted in the exquisite finery of the early 1900’s. Vervet monkeys peer inquisitively through windows, bushbuck graze the camp's lawn, and, if luck befriends you, the surreal sight of an elephant trunk delicately sipping water from the outside shower head. 

Unfolding stories under African Skies

As the sun sets, the outdoor spaces at Selati Camp come alive with the soft glow of authentic shunters' lanterns, recreating evenings when stories were exchanged around campfires under the vast African sky.  

Dining in the outdoor boma is a memorable experience, and as the day nears its end, luxuriate in a soothing bathtub under the magnificent Milky Way.
