Blue Train

The ultra-modern Blue Train smoothes the travel experience with a convivial atmosphere as much country-house party as luxury hotel.

Blue Train, South Africa

The ultra-modern Blue Train smoothes the travel experience with a convivial atmosphere as much country-house party as luxury hotel.

It travels on a route between Pretoria and Cape Town, a 27-hour journey of some 1,600 kilometres (994 miles), and through some of the most diverse and spectacular scenery offered by the African sub-continent.

Restful and elegant, air-suspension, extensive sound-proofing, and stylish modern décor allow you to glide across the country in five-star ease.

By day your cabin is a private compartment with comfortable chairs, converted by your personal butler into a soft and accommodating bed for the night whilst you dine on superb cuisine.

You will arrive at your destination relaxed and pampered, having spent your journey in the lap of luxury.
