The Camp

The Selati Game Reserve is a 27'000 ha private reserve situated in the Limpopo Province of South Africa with unique biodiversity and unmatched beauty.​ It is the Ga-Salati River running through it which is a tributary of the Olifants River. Founded in 1993 through the collaborative effort of landowners in the area who shared a common vision, the reserve plays a vital role in conserving and enhancing the wildlife heritage of South Africa.

The Reserve is home to the Lillie Cycad Reserve which contains the critically endangered Encephalartos dyerianos cycad, which can only be found here.

Selati is a Big Five area but also has Cheetah, Black and White Rhino, Hyena, Hippo and many more. It is also home to the biggest population of free roaming Sable Antelope in Southern Africa due to a very good breeding program.​

Located in the Selati Game Reserve this is an authentic tented camp, set in an unfenced wilderness environment. Accommodation is in comfortable canvas Safari Tents. The Safari Tents each have its own open-air bathroom and a cozy seating place in front of the tent. The main area of the camp features a kitchen, a lounge area, a Braai and fire place as well as two splash pools.

The camp is surrounded by some magnificent large trees providing nice shade. The camp is unfenced giving you an authentic wild experience. The trees attract a lot of different birds with their singing filling the air during the day. The waterhole next to the fire place draws a lot of animals especially in the early evenings. 

The splash pools offer you a cool-down on hot afternoons after the game walk. Around the fire place is the perfect spot for a sundowner and to relax after an eventful day. In the main area is where we serve coffee early morning before the activity, lunch, tea, juices and cake as well as dinner.

There is a cupboard and charging points for your electronics available.In front of the tent is a cozy seating place at your disposal where you can enjoy the beautiful view into the bush and watch the animals walking past.

 

In the main area we serve lunch, snacks and dinner. Most breakfasts we will enjoy during our activity out in the bush. The fire place at the main area invites for a sundowner and offers a beautiful view to the waterhole in front of the camp.
