New from December 2019: Kruger Shalati ‘Train on a Bridge’
Kruger Shalati ‘Train on the Bridge’ is a five-star luxury accommodation experience in the middle of Kruger National Park. The train carriage will be permanently placed on the iconic and historic original Selati railway bridge at Skukuza Camp. This is where the Kruger Park’s first warden, James Steven-Hamilton, first welcomed guests nearly a century ago. The ‘Train on the Bridge’ will be launched on the 16th of December with 16 en-suite carriage rooms able to sleep 32 people.
The train will be restored, upgraded and will have an external walkway attached to the bridge structure, allowing the rooms to be much larger than a traditional compartment-style room. Rooms will have floor-to-ceiling windows with unrestricted views of the river and surrounding game. It will allow guests to enjoy luxury accommodation while sitting above the Sabi River, looking at game from their bath, bedroom and their balconies.
The old block-house next to the bridge will be used as a base for a pool deck designed with an overhanging pool metres above the river flowing below.
Each carriage will have only two luxury rooms, to maximise space. There will also be a lounge carriage with a bar and an adjacent deck. All meals and house beverages are provided as well as two game drives per day.
