Rovos Rail and the Blue Train offer an unforgettable experience for those looking for a refined and comfortable journey through Africa. These trains cater to guests who appreciate luxury rail vacations, superior service, and delightful African-inspired cuisine in a peaceful environment.

Passengers have the option of taking either train along the well-traveled route from Cape Town to Pretoria. This journey takes three days on Rovos Rail and two days on the Blue Train. Each train has luxurious cabins with round-the-clock butler service.

This luxury rail tour is more than just a means of transportation; it is an opportunity to experience the elegance of train travel. As you dine in style, sip cocktails, and take in the breathtaking scenery, you can relax and enjoy a good night’s sleep on the train.
