On arrival at Skukuza airport you will be transferred to Kruger Shalati – The Train on the Bridge. Experience the Kruger, suspended over the Sabie River for an extremely unique accommodation option.
Kruger Shalati offers two types of accommodation: 24 Carriage Suites located on the Train on the Bridge and 7 Bridge House Suites located adjacent to the bridge in a picturesque garden setting with the train’s gentle glow as your backdrop. All of our rooms provide immersive comfort from the most unique location in the Kruger National Park: the historic bridge, where the very first visitors to the Park had a pioneering stay within the carriages, following a night of feasting, performance and tales from times long-gone. Kruger Shalati is a reminder of the 1920’s rail safari, with a contemporary interpretation reflective of the marvel of African design. The arrival lounge, reception and dining areas, along with two of three swimming pools, are found adjacent to the Selati Bridge, overlooking the majestic Sabie River. The river flows all year-round, drawing animals and birds that come to quench their thirst on a daily basis.
Game drives at Kruger Shalati are undertaken by passionate and professional rangers who are eager to share their in-depth knowledge and stories of the fascinating wildlife and surroundings. With a vast range of pristine wilderness to explore in the Kruger National Park and a plethora of African animals to spot, each game drive encounter offers a story of its own.
