Luxury will surround you when you step on board and relax in the comfort and style of The Blue Train as you meander through and bask in the beauty of South Africa’s landscapes.

Why choose The Blue Train?

The Blue Train - Cruise Direction


Every desire attended to by your personal butler

By day your suite is a spacious haven for you to sit and relax in and watch the ever-changing panoramas of the South African landscape then by night it’s transformed into a restful sanctuary with goose down duvets and pillows, and 100 percent percale cotton bedding to envelop you as you drift off after a soothing, scented soak or shower in your marble and gold-appointed bathroom, lulled by the rhythm of the whispering wheels.  

The beautifully designed Lounge Car, conveniently situated in the middle of the train, is an ideal venue to enjoy the charming view of the countryside, with its windows perfectly framing the breath taking vistas and interrupted only by rare works from some of Southern Africa’s finest artists – or an occasional gentle reminder from the barman that your glass needs topping up.  

The Blue Train truly offers an unforgettable experience that you will treasure for a lifetime.
