Kruger Shalati - The Train On The Bridge In South Africa

Shalati

This is the way to honor an abandoned but not forgotten historical structure properly. The heritage site is located in the Kruger National Park, one of Africa's largest game reserves. Nearly 100 years ago, trains had been passing through here and stopped overnight at the Selati Bridge. Now, a sizeable glass-walled train is permanently stationed here, offering guests a similar experience to what the generation of explorers had back in the 1920s.

A pedestrian pathway leads from one end of the bridge to the other. In between, you'll find connecting platforms to get on board — the train consists of 31 rooms, 24 carriage rooms, and 7 Bridge House rooms. Designers used the whole width of the train to create spacious living space. They managed to fit a window-facing double bed and fully equipped bathroom with a rainforest shower and a self-standing bathtub.

It's a one-of-a-kind adventure on a stationary train fixed on a historic bridge. The views are gorgeous, as expected. From the windows, you can see the wilderness and the metal structure of the bridge. High above the riverbanks in the middle of the bridge lies the state-of-the-art wooden deck with a rounded pool—a perfect spot for wildlife spotting and gazing at the passing clouds.
