The Occasion: A Century of Heritage

Imagine the scene: It was a century ago when the very first train journeyed into the heart of the Kruger National Park, embarking on a historic voyage that halted atop the Selati Bridge for remarkable overnight stays. This year, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of these unforgettable events, a true landmark in both our natural and cultural history.

As we honour the legacy of the Kruger National Park’s Round in 9 train and its storied nights on the Selati Bridge, we invite you to channel your artistic energies into creating a unique masterpiece. You have the choice to draw inspiration from either the iconic Selati Bridge or the famous train carriages themselves. Whichever speaks to your artistic soul, let it guide your imagination and bring your vision to life.
