Kruger Shalati

Explore the Wild: Discover the Beauty of the Kruger National Park


Permanently stationed on the historically-rich Selati Bridge above the Sabie River in the iconic Kruger National Park, Kruger Shalati offers the most unique luxury accommodation in a re-envisioned train, which will pay homage to the guests who explored the park nearly 100 years ago while welcoming new explorers from near and far. The train celebrates where the first visits to the iconic park were allowed in the early 1920s, the train would park overnight in the exact spot where Kruger Shalati is positioned.

The train accommodation offers 31 rooms, consisting of 24 carriage rooms and 7 bridge house rooms (to be completed in 2022) , each of which is designed to ensure breathtaking views and comfort. Each room is designed with local art and crafts to celebrate Africa’s beautiful designs. Aligned with the floor level of the train lies a deck with a pool, offering guests the unique experience of taking a dip while watching crocodiles, hippos and elephants just meters below.

Experience the Kruger, suspended over the Sabie River.
