Kruger Shalati the Train on the Bridge

Kruger Shalati offers the most unique luxury accommodation in a re-envisioned train which pays homage to the guests who explored the park nearly 100 years ago and now welcomes new visitors from all over the world. The train is permanently stationed on the historically-rich Selati Bridge above the Sabie River in the Kruger National Park.    

Kruger Shalati offers 24 train carriage rooms and 7 land-based, family-friendly Bridge House Garden rooms, all of which will provide a deeply visceral experience, tailored for immersive comfort.      

The large train rooms which all have a large glass wall, allow for infinite views along the length of the majestic Sabie River while the style of the train is a celebration of African design in collaboration with local art and crafting skills. On the bridge, you will also find our bespoke deck with a swimming pool, high above the riverbanks. This pool is aligned with the floor level of the train. It offers a swimming experience unlike any other, with crocodile, hippos, buffalos and elephants greeting guests meters below.    

Thought-provoking, unique design is core to our offering, but the holistic experience is centred around our human-ness, our cultural nuances, the people involved in the making of every element, and ultimately the kindness with which we receive our guests.    

Experience the Kruger, suspended over the Sabie River.
