Kruger Shalati: An iconic and unique product set to be created in the heart of Kruger National Park.

Kruger’s first warden, James Steven-Hamilton welcomed his visitors nearly 100 years ago where they dined in the bush in a make-shift Boma complete with Piano playing next to the firepit while rangers made sure any hungry predators stayed at bay while the guest enjoyed the experience.
