The Blue Train - Pretoria to Cape Town

Blue Train – Pretoria to Cape Town – 3 Day Rail Journey

Overview

The Blue Train is unique. It is not merely a train, but combines the luxury of the world’s leading hotels within the charm of train travel. Imagine the comfort and luxury of a five star hotel from which you can watch the moon rise over the Karoo and wake to find yourself surrounded by vineyards. The route between Pretoria and Cape Town is a 27-hour journey of 1,600 kilometres (994 miles), through some of the most diverse and spectacular scenery offered by the African sub-continent.

From the luxury of the private lounge at the railway station, enter your carriage of rich gold, deep blues and warm wood panelling, off-set by detailed marquetry. By day your private suite is an elegant and relaxing haven and as night falls, your suite magically transforms into a romantic boudoir of soft, glowing light and fine cotton linen. In keeping with the classically romantic ambiance, dinner in the dining car is a formal occasion.

Itinerary is available in reverse.
