If you’re looking for one of South Africa’s, if not the world’s, most unique and awe-inspiring luxury hotels, look no further than the suspended opulence of Kruger Shalanti. Blending classical elegance with a distinctly modern flair, this is the perfect choice for those seeking a safari experience like no other.
Choose the unique charm of a Carriage Suite and enjoy Sabie River views, or take a land-based approach and opt for one of the property’s Bridge House Suites, which are a great choice for those wanting a more intimate taste of the South African bush.
The Kruger Shalati train is named after an African warrior queen of the same name. Her reign dates back to the 19th century when legend tells of her as one of the first female chiefs of the Tebula clan within the Tsonga tribe in Limpopo Province.

Homosexuality is regarded as a complex issue in much of Africa, but in South Africa it’s far easier. South Africa is the unofficial gay capital of Africa and you’ll find Africa’s biggest LGBTQ+ community in Cape Town.
Carriage Suites offer breathtaking views of the majestic Sabie River from a luxurious converted train, complete with African-inspired decor and local artistry. Enjoy unparalleled swimming adventures with animals like crocodiles, hippos, buffaloes, and elephants right below the elevated pool and deck.
Perfect for romantic getaways, special occasions, or even the entire family – the Bridge House Suites provides an unforgettable experience of being completely in touch with nature. There is also an exclusive honeymoon suite available for couples looking for more privacy and intimacy.
