THE BLUE TRAIN IS AFRICA’S LEADING LUXURY TRAIN
The Blue Train was named as Africa’s Leading Luxury Train by the World Travel Awards! The Blue Train has been the undisputed winner of this title since 2009!
Take a step back to a time when luxury rail travel was only available to the rich and famous. Nowadays the journey on South Africa’s Blue Train is so affordable, and a great way to see the countryside travelling between Pretoria and Cape Town as an alternative to a flight. Enjoy the South African landscape in an unhurried fashion and avoid the stress of airports. On the popular southbound routing, the train departs from Pretoria Station early morning, making a stop in Kimberley for an off-train excursion. This interesting stop takes you back to the pioneer days of the diamond rush. The train pulls into Cape Town station around midday the following day. The train is impeccably appointed, like a moving boutique hotel, with absolute comfort, attention to detail and private ensuite facilities. Everything is catered for, you even have your very own personal cabin butler to attend to every need. The food is first class with excellent South African wines to accompany the dishes, and superb service that is warm and friendly. The trip is fully inclusive on board (except French champagne and personal items), with an added bonus of a complimentary night either in Pretoria or Cape Town in a 5* hotel or boutique guest house with breakfast and station transfers.
