Travel through dramatic landscapes at a smooth and stately pace whilst enjoying exquisite private luxury suites, impeccable service and fine dining. Our most popular luxury train journeys cross South Africa – running between cosmopolitan Cape Town and the city of Pretoria – but we can happily arrange longer trips to tumbling Victoria Falls or up into Namibia’s desert landscapes. Combine the finest elements of modern travel with the romance and elegance of a bygone era, you won’t regret it!
Rovos Rail and the Blue Train are the two world-leaders in luxury train travel. Rovos is known for its beautiful wood-panelled dining carriages and old-world charm. Along with shorter trips, Rovos runs an annual 2-week odyssey from Cape Town all the way to Dar es Salaam – without doubt one of the most spectacular train journeys in the world.
The Blue Train is slightly more modern; its easily recognisable carriages – decorated in rich blue and gold – regularly cross South Africa in a 27-hour journey that is a smooth, fast ride.
Luxury train travel lets you experience Africa in a way you never have before, and on so many occasions, our clients discover that it’s the journey that matters so much (if not more) than the destination.
