The Blue Train

The Blue Train lives up to its reputation for magnificence and splendour, offering its passengers a luxurious on-board experience that they will never forget. The Blue Train has a lounge car which is the ideal place to meet your fellow travellers and relax after dinner with a coffee. The club car has a well-stocked bar, a library and a big screen television and is a great place for a game of cards or backgammon. There is also a boutique on board, selling a collection of beautiful South African jewellery as well as Blue Train souvenirs. A Train Manager and two engineers are on board the train at all times and they are all happy to share their knowledge of the country, route and train with passengers.




We include accommodation in Deluxe cabins, featuring the finest bed linen, marble tiles and gold fittings in the bathrooms. There are four Deluxe cabins per carriage, with either twin beds and a shower or a double bed and a bath. By day, the beds fold away to provide an elegant lounge so you can admire the passing scenery from the comfort of your own cabin.

All cabins also feature a washbasin and WC as well as a wardrobe and a safe. Each carriage has its own dedicated butler who may be contacted 24 hours a day via the telephone found in each cabin.

Upgrades to Luxury cabins are also available on The Blue Train (subject to availability). There are three of these larger cabins per carriage, with twin or double beds which fold away during the day to provide a lounge with seating. The Luxury cabins include a wardrobe and a digital entertainment centre incorporating a CD player and a DVD player and an en suite bathroom which features a bath, washbasin and WC.
