:-? "Selati" is not mentioned. Maybe something different -O-

They cannot have all that fuzz around the Selati train, with the prizes that they ask and it's a private company running the Selati train accommodations :-?

It is probably just the old restaurant eventually getting a new owner at last? The train will not be the only customers, surely! :-0

Kruger Station: SA's new foodie destination

The Kruger Station, which is part of the Kruger Shalati project, has created a bespoke designed and crafted space for travellers and foodies.

"The Kruger Station goes beyond the usual bacon-and-egg breakfasts, or home-packed sandwich lunches eaten at its various stops, with a far more pleasurable and exciting way to spend an hour or two before guests resume their search for the Big Five, " said Concession.

The station structure was built in the 1980s to house the heritage train currently parked in Skukuza at Kruger National Park. 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 includes a family dining section, bar, a deli/takeaway, a 360-degree cinema, children play area and a retailing area.
