Permanently stationed on the historically-rich Selati Bridge above the Sabie River, 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 will be positioned.

The glass-walled, large train rooms 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. High above the riverbanks, aligned with the floor level of the train, will lie our bespoke deck with pool, offering a swimming experience unlike any other – with crocodile, hippos, buffalos and elephants greeting guests meters below – a vista unlike any other!

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