This would be my second stay at Selati 103 hence my decision to review it. Enjoying wildlife, a benefit is the proximity to the Malelane gate to the Kruger National Park which is a less than 3km's away. The self catering unit I stayed in was very well equipped with all pots, pans. cutlery, cups etc. catered for. The unit... More

Located less than a 5 min drive from the Malelane gate to Kruger Park, Selati 103 provides excellent accomodation. Good value-for-money cottages, with clean bathrooms, a private braai area, swimming pool and more amenities. Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable owner/manager.

Being delayed by roadworks we couldn't get into the Kruger campsite before dark so popped into Selati. They were very friendly and helpful and offered us a beautiful room - just what we needed after a long, frustrating journey. I would highly recommend them for a stopover or longer visit. Many thanks Ted and anna

The staff were very friendly and very helpful. It is also evident that there is a significant security fence around the perimeter, so it is secure too. I... More
