Kruger Shalati Train Lodge

When all this craziness is over, you will probably want to escape to somewhere special. Well, the Shalati Train Lodge is quite unlike anything we’ve seen before. Located on top of a disused railway bridge above the Sabie River inside the vast Kruger National Park in South Africa, sits a restored train in its stationary position that has been converted into a comfortable lodge with 24 rooms complete with floor-to-ceiling windows, a lounge carriage with bar and deck and pool for relaxing, and lounging space with game viewing opportunities from the vista atop the river. All rooms will offer guests a high-star rating luxury experience, and will be accompanied by fine dining and other leisure experiences onsite. The Kruger Shalati will open its doors in September 2020.
