Fantastic experience and wonderful staff. Our guide Lawrence was more than helpful and a fount of knowledge both on the drive and off. I would recommend the train on the bridge experience ASAP before the inevitable popularity increase and associated price rises kicks in.

8/10 Very good

Amazing property, didn't get enough time to enjoy it though. Between two long game drives a day and then long meals times, and needing to be at these things half an hour prior, which was unnecessary in my opinion, we only had very limited time between all this to enjoy the pool and relax etc. Felt too regimented at times so would recommend shorter game drives - the sun doesn't rise until around 630am, and between then and 730am is when we saw the most animals, so no need to start the morning game drive soo early with a 545am wake up call via phone . Otherwise wonderful stay.

This property is unique. You’ll never live on a train on a bridge in the middle of the safari with hippos beneath your bed ! Every single staff was amazing and went above and beyond to ensure my stay was magical. I did not want to leave. :) i will definitely be back for sure !

10/10 Exceptional

My stay at the Kruger Shalati was wonderful from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. Everyone from the manager Dollen, to the ranger Victor, our server Angel/Angie, and the chef was top tier. They provided exceptional service throughout our stay. Dollen made sure that our stay was enjoyable and that we had everything we needed. Victor was very personable and informative during our game drives. We saw four of the Big 5. And Angel and the chef worked together to make sure that our foods met our dietary restrictions. The food was delicious and there was a pretty good selection to choose from daily. My experience here was so great that I am definitely coming back to stay at this property when I return to Africa.

Fantastique !
Nous revenons d’une semaine au Parc Kruger, entre les réserves privées de Sabie Sands et du parc Kruger lui-même, et le Kruger Shalati surpasse tous les autres lodges, son rapport qualité est absolument imbattable. L’idée d’un lodge dans un train sur un pont est déjà plus qu’originale. Les chambres sont magnifiquement décorées, et la vue sur le fleuve du haut du pont est saisissante. La nourriture est excellente est de loin la meilleure que nous ayons goûtée lors de notre séjour. Le personnel est très professionnel et absolument charmant, et notre guide SIZWE pour les Game Drives s’est montré adorable, très attentionné et très professionnel également, il a su nous transmettre toute sa passion au travers des explications qu’il nous a promulguées sur les léopards, lions, éléphants, hippopotames, crocodiles et oiseaux de toutes sortes qu’il a trouvés pour nous. Si vous envisagez de visiter le Parc Kruger, un seul conseil, descendez au Kruger Shalati Train on the Bridge, vous ne serez pas déçus, tout y est fantastique !
