AArguably the most popular National Park for the UK and Irish market in South Africa, Kruger National Park is the same size as Wales. It has 11 entry gates, endless wildlife (including the ‘Big Five’), multiple roads spreading across every section and of course, lots of accommodation.
Safari accommodation all around South Africa offers an entire ‘experience’, not just a place to stay, but where else can your clients stay and sleep in a luxury train carriage, to wake up to views of the park far below? This is an amazing property!
TThe Kruger Shalati Train on the Bridge opened in December last year, and we cannot wait to visit! The project incorporates the old rail infrastructure, still in place since the railway closed to traffic between Mozambique and South Africa many decades ago. Once upon a time trains would arrive with guests who would be welcomed to the park for an unforgettable safari experience, and sleep in the stationary train overnight before heading on to the next destination; this new concept recreates the magic of this.
TThe upgraded carriages sit next to an old block house, converted as the base for an innovative pool deck, where your clients might be lucky enough to spot big game from high above the Sabi River. The train offers 24 en-suite rooms, able to house up to 48 guests, with another 7 rooms adjacent in the Kruger Shalati Bridge house, accommodating 14 people next to the bridge.
The project has been hailed as an unique luxury accommodation experience, and surrounding communities have been empowered through world class training, skills development and job opportunities.
