Stay in the Train on the Bridge

World Journeys reports that a new luxury accommodation offering in South Africa is due to open later this year.

Kruger Shalati, also known as the Train on the Bridge, will offer luxury accommodation in a newly refurbished train, permanently based on an historic unused railway bridge. The 24 Carriage Rooms will feature glass walls giving uninterrupted views along the Sabie River which flows under the bridge. A further seven Bridge House rooms have been created in the former train station, including a honeymoon suite and a family suite. A pool deck will offer views with crocodile, hippos, buffalos and elephants metres below.

Located near the Skukuza Rest Camp, Kruger Shalati is a two-hour drive from Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport, and four kilometres from Skukuza Airport. Now accepting bookings for 2021, nightly rates are available on request, and include accommodation, all meals and two game drives daily.
