It’s great news for the Kruger Shalati Train on the Bridge hotel: They now have a five-star grading from the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa.
Luxury guaranteed at Kruger Shalati
The Kruger Shalati Train on the Bridge hotel is now officially regarded as as five-star establishment, after it received a five-star grading from the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa (TGCSA).
Kruger Shalati the Train on the Bridge certainly is a special bit of accommodation. Not only for its unique offerings and location, but also for its story of perseverance, having started out in 2020 when COVID-19 had a choke-hold on the travel and tourism industry.
Two years later, and the Kruger Shalati has prospered, given that it now has its five-star badge of honour from the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa.
The TGCSA operates as a business unit of South African Tourism, and is still the only recognised and globally credible quality assurance body for tourism products in South Africa. This means that when it comes to globally recognisable grading, the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa really is the one and only.

‘A proud moment for all of us at Kruger Shalati Train on the Bridge. We have received our official five-star grading certificate from the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa (TGSA). We look forward to welcoming you aboard our luxury train hotel situated over the Sabie river – spanning from bank to bank – in the world renowned Kruger National Park.’
A unique stay
The hotel is an almost 100-year-old train that’s been restored to perfection and sits atop the Selati suspension bridge. If that doesn’t impress you, how about the fact that this bridge is one that spans the incredibly wildlife-rich Sabie River in the heart of the Kruger National Park?
The hotel offers the most unique, luxury accommodation with 24 Carriage rooms and seven Bridge House rooms, a wildlife viewing deck and an impossibly beautiful swimming pool with a view. There’s also a range of spa treatments available on board.
