One of the most famous and luxurious trains in the world
This is arguably the most famous train in the world comparing with other luxurious trains such as the Orient Express. This is a very different experience to Rovos Rail. The train and the coaches are modern and lack for nothing in terms of modern comforts. Pretoria to Cape Town is a relatively short ride taking just 27 hours. You sleep while the train is travelling and you wake up to the magnificent scenery as the train enters the mountainous area north of Cape Town. Whether you chose the deluxe or luxury suites, riding on The Blue Train is a memorable experience. Whilst on board you will be pampered with exceptional personal service even by South Africa’s high standards with fine cuisine and wines to match.
