Train on the bridge

Kruger Shalati: The Train on the Bridge offers an unparalleled experience within the majestic Kruger National Park in South Africa. This unique destination seamlessly blends Africa’s awe-inspiring natural beauty with luxurious accommodations aboard a stationary train, showcasing the continent’s excellence. Guests are treated to a perfect fusion of adventure and indulgence, surrounded by the breathtaking landscapes of one of Africa’s most renowned wilderness areas.

Permanently stationed atop the historically-rich Selati Bridge overlooking the Sabie River, Kruger Shalati promises an unparalleled luxury accommodation experience within a reimagined train, paying homage to the intrepid explorers of nearly a century ago while beckoning new adventurers from every corner of the globe. Harkening back to the park’s early days in the 1920s when the first visitors were permitted, the train will rest in the very spot where Kruger Shalati now stands, offering 31 meticulously crafted rooms, including 24 carriage rooms and 7 Bridge House garden rooms, all designed to immerse guests in unparalleled comfort. Whether seeking an extraordinary adventure, a captivating retreat, or simply a profound connection with nature’s wonders, Kruger Shalati eagerly anticipates guiding you on a journey of discovery unlike any other.


The expansive glass walls of the train rooms afford endless vistas along the Sabie River, while the train’s design is a celebration of African craftsmanship and style, incorporating local artistry into every detail. Perched high above the riverbanks, our bespoke deck with a pool invites guests to an aquatic experience like no other, with crocodiles, hippos, buffalos, and elephants making occasional appearances just meters below—a spectacle beyond compare!


While our avant-garde design captivates the senses, our focus remains on the human experience, honoring cultural nuances, the dedicated individuals behind every element, and above all, extending warmth and hospitality to each guest.


Embark on an unforgettable journey suspended above the Sabie River and immerse yourself in the essence of the Kruger like never before.
