Kruger Shalati

The most anticipated new offering to the iconic Kruger National Park, South Africa, Kruger Shalati is a perfect combination of Africa’s most breathtaking natural splendours with well-deserved luxuries aboard a newly refurbished train.

Permanently stationed on the historically rich Selati Bridge above the Sabie River, Kruger Shalati will offer the most unique luxury accommodation in a re-envisioned train that pays 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 will be positioned.

Offering 31 rooms, consisting of 24 carriage rooms and seven Bridge House rooms, all of which will provide a deeply visceral experience and are tailored for immersive comfort, whether you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind adventure, an enthralling break or to simply immerse yourself in earth’s finest creations, Kruger Shalati welcomes guests on a journey of discovery with nature in the most extraordinary way imaginable.

The large, glass-walled train rooms allow for expansive views along the length of the majestic Sabie River, while the style is a celebration of African design in collaboration with local art and crafting skills. High above the riverbanks, aligned with the floor level of the train, will be a bespoke deck with pool offering a swimming experience unlike any other – with crocodiles, hippos, buffalos and elephants greeting guests just metres below.
