The Blue Train is a magical five-star ‘hotel’ on tracks. It runs around three times a week between Pretoria and Cape Town. And we think it’s one of the best ways to see the country.

There’s delicious food in the classically chic wood-panelled dining room (if the chocolate pots are on the menu you have to try them). Suites that simply ooze glamour from a bygone era. And impeccable service, including an on-board valet. 

It's a 2 night journey, with a pause en route to visit the open mine museum at Kimberley (time and weather permitting). We might need to do a bit of creative planning to make your dates work and get you on board. But, luckily, that’s exactly the kind of thing we do best.
