The Train on the Bridge – South Africa’s New Luxurious Getaway

“The Train on the Bridge” is one of the most anticipated and exciting new offerings coming to the iconic Kruger National Park.

The Kruger Shalati is a perfect combination of Africa’s most breathtaking natural splendours with well-deserved luxuries.

This getaway is a newly refurbished train that is reminiscent of African excellence. Permanently stationed on the historically-rich Selati Bridge above the Sabie River, Kruger Shalati. It 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.

Whether you are looking for a one-of-a-kind adventure, an enthralling break or to simply immerse yourself in earth’s finest creations. The Kruger Shalati looks forward to welcoming you on a journey of discovery with nature in the most extraordinary way imaginable.

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.
