The Blue Train is widely regarded as one of the world's most luxurious trains. For more than half a century South Africa's Blue Train has enjoyed an international reputation as one of the world's pre-eminent traveling experiences.

By day, your private suite is an elegant and relaxing haven. Generous lounge chairs and a writing desk at the window afford unparalleled views of Africa's panoramic and enigmatic sights.

The journey between Pretoria and Cape Town is run on a regular schedule. The train can be chartered for any other route in South Africa.

A & J P from the UK had this to say about the trip:

"Blue Train - This was one of the favourite parts of the journey. Not only were all the staff once again polite and professional but the standard of the whole experience was second to none. To have such a relaxing start to the honeymoon set the tone fully for us, and allowed us both to take some time to relax and enjoy South Africa’s scenery. We were never rushed, pressurised or felt alt anytime anything was too much trouble for us. The added experience of the Kimberly mine tour was also an unexpected surprise and again the tour was informative and professional. RCJM - The service you have provided was second to none and I can only thank you all for the time and trouble you went to where every last little detail was thought of. Because of this we would have no hesitation in recommending you to organise tours for friends and family. We are now ambassadors for South Africa and will promote your country to as many people as we possibly can.
