Soak Up the Sabie Views

You could easily spend your entire stay at Kruger Shalati The Train On The Bridge peering over the precipice – clicking away with your camera while watching for birds and big game (elephants!) arriving to drink at the river’s edge.

Everywhere you step, is an opportunity to savour those incredible views, be it the dedicated walkway, the protruding pool, or even your private carriage-style suite. Sunset and sunrise are a celebrated occasion to contemplate the quiet surrounds and imagine the good ol’ days of how travel used to be…

Kruger Station Lifestyle Precinct

Kruger Shalati The Train On The Bridge is just a few minutes walk from Kruger Station lifestyle precinct. The nearby old Kruger Station has been transformed into a lively lifestyle district featuring great places to eat, a deli, an ice cream shop, a play area for children, and a 360-degree cinema presenting wildlife films.

Game Viewing Galore!

While Kruger Shalati is considered more of a hotel, you can still max out on safari activities you’d find at most lodges in the area. Led by well-trained ranger-guides, 4x4 game drives and bush walks are indeed available if you’re still focused on finding all of the members of the Big Five. Night drives are especially thrilling, revealing those nocturnal Kruger creatures like hyena, jackal, bushbabies, and aardvark.

Birding at Kruger Shalati

Birding-enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice when it comes to birdwatching. Be it from the train itself, or during game drives and bush walks, the area surrounding the Sabie River promises a wealth of resident and migratory species. These include Crowned and Martial Eagles, Dark-capped Bulbuls, Tawny-flanked Prinia, a variety of bush shrikes, and Pel’s Fishing Owl often seen after dark.
