Bringing a trendy deli, cool cafe and a bespoke designed and crafted space to the Kruger National Park, the Kruger Station officially opened at the beginning of August – and already the positive reviews are coming in.
Guests have remarked on everything from the food to the service to the setting so far, with one stating: “It’s perfect! Love the ambiance and it’s very chic!” Other guests who were quick to review Kruger Station exclaimed that they had an awesome time and that the overall experience is really stylish and modern, but also an adventure that takes you down memory lane.
The station structure was built in the 1980s to house the heritage train currently parked in Skukuza, Kruger National Park (KNP). This new opening sees the rebirth and modernisation of this iconic station to add to its heritage with an artisanal food and beverage offering (which combines family dining, bar and a deli/takeaways), a 360-degree cinema, kids play area and a retailing area.
The recent announcements of the easing of regulations and the move to Level 2 by President Cyril Rhamaphosa means that South Africans are able to travel interprovincially once again and we are sure that many are itching to head to the Kruger National Park for some much-needed animal spotting and some relaxation.
For all who visit, the addition of the Kruger Station precinct will be a pleasant surprise. There are so many new offerings for visitors to enjoy – we’re sure you’ll be equally enthusiastic about them as the first guests were!
