The Blue Train, Cape Town to Pretoria

Butlers awaiting your every request. Luxurious wood-panelled private suites. The comfort of soft leather furnishings.

Hark back to the golden age of rail travel. Step aboard a roving palace that has welcomed kings and presidents. Pass the time in the elegant lounge cars. Sit down to formal dinners that sparkle with polished silver and crystal glassware.

Survey South Africa’s diverse array of landscapes through the gold-tinted picture windows of this two-night 1600 km journey.
