Train on the Bridge

Kruger Shalati: The Train on the Bridge, one of the most anticipated and exciting new accommodation offerings to come to the iconic Kruger National Park, has recently opened.

Permanently stationed on the historically-rich Selati Bridge above the Sabie River, close to the Skukuza Rest Camp, Kruger Shalati offers the most unique luxury accommodation in a re-envisioned train, paying homage to those pioneers who surveyed the park nearly a century ago, while welcoming new explorers from near and far. 

The position of the train celebrates the spot where the first visits to the iconic park were allowed in the early 1920s, as back then the train stopped overnight in the exact location where Kruger Shalati is now situated.

The Kruger Shalati presents a perfect combination of the most breath-taking natural splendours of Africa, offering well-deserved luxuries aboard a newly refurbished train with 31 rooms, consisting of 24 carriage rooms and seven bridge house rooms, all providing a visceral experience, tailored for immersive comfort. 

A unique experience

Whether you are looking for a unique, one-of-a-kind adventure, an enthralling break, or to simply immerse yourself in the African experience, Kruger Shalati welcomes you on a journey of discovery with nature. The glass-walled, large train rooms allow for infinite views along the length of the Sabie River, while the style of the train is a celebration of African design, arts, and craft.

High above the riverbanks, aligned with the floor level of the train, lies the pool deck, offering a unique swimming experience – gazing down on crocodile, hippos, buffalos, and elephants – and a vista unlike any other. So, take advantage of the early bird offers to experience nature from a completely unique setting.
