Train hotel inspired by the 1920s


Facilities & services

  • 31 rooms

Permanently stationed on Selati Bridge above the Sabie River, Kruger Shalati is a re-envisioned train that pays homage to those who explored the park some 100 years ago. The train takes its inspiration from the early 1920s when the train would overnight on the bridge where it stands today.

There are 31 rooms, consisting of 24 carriage rooms and seven Bridge House rooms, each designed with comfort in mind. The glass-walled train rooms offer astounding views along the river. African design, local art and crafting add a unique feel to rooms and shared spaces. Unwind at the pool while crocodiles, hippos, buffalos and elephants gather at the river’s edge below.
