Travel on the Blue Train and experience a timeless world of grace, elegance and charm. Being the train that many kings and presidents have travelled on, its majestic atmosphere should come as no surprise.

This unique train offers you an all-inclusive luxury rail cruise. Much like travelling on a mobile five-star hotel, the train takes you past some of South Africa's spectacular landscapes and stops at interesting tourist attractions along the way. All suites have generous lounge chairs that fold out into beds and have their own Italian marble bathrooms. For those who feel inspired, a writing desk is positioned at the large window, showcasing the moving African landscape. Enjoy the discreet presence and courtesy of your own professional butler and your private digital entertainment centre. The Lounge Car of the Blue Train host s a giant-size TV screen, cleverly revealing the unfolding scenery from the front-of-train camera. In every effort to make guests feel like true royalty, the elegant train offers a library and panoramic windows to enjoy the ever changing African landscape. Meals on the Blue Train are accompanied by award-winning wines from the Cape winelands. Each afternoon, High Tea is served in the Lounge Car, which includes popular delicacies, such as cucumber sandwiches, dainty cakes, fresh scones and cream with an assortment of fine teas and coffees.

The journey between Pretoria and Cape Town is run on a regular schedule, while the Cape Town to Port Elizabeth journey is run once a year. Pretoria to Hoedspruit (Kruger Park) and Pretoria to Victoria Falls are available as charter trips. The train makes regular stops at interesting tourist attractions where guests can sightsee and enjoy the local scenery.
