The Blue Train, Cape Town, South Africa

The Blue Train is the last word in railway luxury. Every effort has been made to ensure your journey passes in a blissful cocoon of comfort and elegance.

By day, your private compartment has comfortable chairs allowing you to relax and admire the vistas of Africa as they glide past. When outside your compartment, you can relax in the club car with a drink and the friendly company of the barman, or you could spend time right at the back of the train in the lounge car, where panoramic windows showcase the country through which you are passing.

As night falls, whilst you dine on superb food enjoying silver service, your butler will be converting the chairs in your room into comfortable beds, with crisp linen to ease you into slumber. Advanced air suspension and effective soundproofing ensure that the normal swaying and clacking of rail travel will not keep you from your dreams.
