The Nostalgic Rail Adventure Experience
The Sabi Sands region in the past was host to a railroad that carried gold from the goldfields to Delagoa Bay on the coast. Today signs of the railroad can still be seen and it is in the theme of this bygone era that a stay at Selati Camp can be appreciated. Harking back to the days of old provides for a unique safari, however the wildlife is as dramatic as the lodge is unique.
Knowledgeable guides and trackers will show you the wilderness that seems as untouched as it was then, and they will ensure close encounters with the big game on game drives and walks. Add to all this spa treatments, and great hospitality, and the Nostalgic Rail Adventure becomes the African Safari of a lifetime.

Day 2: Safari Lodge in Sabi Sands
