The luxurious Kruger Shalati in South Africa is one of the most anticipated new hotels this year. Here you will be staying aboard a luxury train permanently stationed on the historically rich Selati Bridge, which is suspended high above the majestic Sabie River with jaw-dropping views of Kruger National Park.
A landmark hotel, the luxe train carriages pays homage to the explorers that visited the iconic park some 100 years ago, when the train would park overnight in the exact spot where Kruger Shalati is positioned.
The hotel fuses contemporary African design with odes to Old World glamour and top-notch facilities, and high above the riverbanks, aligned with the floor level of the train, there is also a bespoke pool deck.
Here you can expect unique swimming experience – with crocodile, hippos, buffalos and elephants right below !
The hotel offers 31 rooms consisting of 24 carriage rooms and 7 Bridge House rooms, all of which offer a one-of-a-kind safari adventure and fully immersive nature experience, thanks to its glass-walled design with epic vistas.
The Kruger Shalati is slated to open in September 2020. You can keep abreast of the latest news HERE.
