Looking for a luxurious yet unique way to travel through South Africa? Look no further!
The Blue Train, which has earned the title of World’s Leading Luxury Train, is a five-star hotel on wheels. The train, which has hosted countless presidents and royal figures, has two routes, beginning in either Pretoria or Cape Town, then winding through some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Matching the luxury of any stationary five-star hotel, the train’s suites feature 100% percale cotton linen and goose down duvets, with private bathrooms featuring marble vanity basins, marble wall and floor tiles, gold fittings, and a choice of shower or bath. Private butler service and gourmet cuisine cap off the experience.
The Blue Train recently partnered with two (stationary) five-star hotels to offer a unique stay. Guests can stay at The 131 On Herbert Baker in Pretoria or the Taj in Cape Town. These luxury hotels will either get your trip started or welcome you home with a complimentary night’s stay and transport between the train station.
