Sabi Sabi Selati Lodge, Sabi Sand Wildtuin, South Africa
Sabi Sabi is one of the private reserves within the Sabi Sands and offers four luxury lodges themed as 'Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow'. Selati Lodge has all the atmosphere and trimmings of 'Yesterday'. The lodge's name commemorates the Selati railway line that used to run from the Transvaal to Mozambique, close to the site of the lodge. There is some impressive railway memorabilia adorning the bar walls and each of the suites are named after stops on the former railway line.
Selati is a wonderful romantic retreat, with just eight suites, giving exclusivity and privacy. The colonial-styled rooms are spacious with atmospheric oil lamps at night, although the modern conveniences of an en-suite bathroom, electric sockets and air-conditioning are a welcome addition. This is the perfect lodge for couples looking to escape from it all and experience some of the old colonial elegance without sacrificing luxury.
Game drives are taken in open vehicles in the company of excellent game rangers and trackers, who will impart their considerable knowledge about the fauna and flora you will see on Sabi Sabi's prime land.
