Hike some of Cape Town’s most remarkable peaks, and explore caves deep in Table Mountain. Adrenaline junkies use the mountain as a launch pad while they appreciate the beauty of the Mother City from above. Venture along the Garden Route to face phobias with a sense of adventure. End off this rollercoaster of a year at South Africa’s most anticipated accommodation in the Kruger Park, the Kruger Shalati Train on the Bridge.

The mother’s secrets

We reveal some of the Mother City’s best kept secrets on the slopes of Table Mountain such as the Himalayan Tahr and the mines found Hout Bay.

The route of all fear

With a lot pushing and cheering we kloof through narrow gorges; swim with sharks; sandboard down dunes and jump off high bridges. With the right kind of support, you can overcome all of your fears.

A golden era returns to Kruger

When you think of Kruger Shalati Train on the Bridge, think luxury and nostalgia– from plush carriage rooms to a plunge pool suspended above the Sabie River.
