Kruger National Park

Kruger Shalati


Suspended above the Kruger

Permanently stationed on the 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 and a glimpse into the 1920s when it used to welcome in explorers from far and wide.

The train accommodation offers 31 rooms, each offering 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 you the unique experience of taking a dip while watching crocodiles, hippos and elephants below.
