Classic African Luxury


An icon of South African travel, the Blue Train is the best way to soak up the stunning vistas not accessible by any other means. Counting celebrities and presidents among its patrons, this prestigious hotel on wheels combines world-class accommodation and dining with an ever-changing backdrop of South African landscapes for a truly unforgettable experience.

Every aspect is class and elegance made manifest. The Lounge Car sports large, panoramic windows, ideal for taking in the sights. The Dining Car serves delicious meals for every palate prepared by master chefs and served against a backdrop of smooth jazz or classical music. An exclusive boutique offers a selection of fitting mementos, plenty of which are branded with the Blue Train’s elegant signet. Silver or gold, diamond, or tanzanite – every item is a thing of beauty and will keep the memory alive for years to come.

The accommodation consists of De Luxe and Luxury Suites. The Luxury option offers an extra metre of length, and occupies it with a luxurious bath tub. All suites offer the choice of twin or double beds and feature underfloor heating and individually controlled air conditioning.
