Widely regarded as one of the world's most luxurious trains, the Blue Train offers more than just a journey. It's an all-inclusive experience offering a combination of unsurpassed luxury travel, five star-accommodation, fine cuisine, personalised butler service and routes that offer breathtaking views of the South African countryside from the comfort of your private suite or from any one of the train's exquisite lounges. Indulge in the finest cuisine prepared by top chefs accompanied by some of the best wines South Africa has to offer. Cabins include on board entertainment and a driver's eye view camera showing the countryside ahead.

The Blue Train is unique - it is not merely a train but combines the luxury of the world's leading hotels with the charm of train travel. Think of it as an all inclusive luxury rail cruise with an opportunity to view South Africa's spectacular landscapes and visit fascinating attractions along the way.

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. By night it transforms into a subtly-lit cosy bedroom complete with all the luxury trimmings and an en suite bathroom.
