Since it’s inception in 1946, The Blue Train has become recognized as the epitome of luxury train travel and an icon of the Southern African tourism, hospitality and leisure experience.
Comparable to the world’s finest hotels, each suite on board the train offers five star luxurious accommodation with private en-suite bathroom facilities. The luxury element on board the train is accentuated by the personalised butler service.
The Blue Train prides itself on the fine cuisine it offers its guests with meals that are accompanied by a wide selection of South African wines sourced only from boutique vineyards. The on board experience is complimented by scenic landscape as the train meanders across the Southern-most part of the African continent.Visit Website
