South Africa's majestic Blue Train has played host to presidents and kings. It travels between Pretoria and Cape Town and may also connect to other parts of the country. As lush scenery passes outside your window, you'll relax in comfort on board and enjoy exquisite service and cuisine. Along the way, you'll see many of South Africa's loveliest sights, from the golden fields of Witwatersrand and farms of Northern Cape to the Karoo thirstlands where ostriches run wild. Majestic Table Mountain appears in the distance as you approach Cape Town.

The elegantly-appointed Rovos Rail links some of Africa's greatest destinations, from Cape Town to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, through the game reserves of Mpumalanga to Victoria Falls and along the stunning coastal Garden Route in South Africa. You’ll be pampered with attentive service and delectable fare on board. From atop the unique open-air balcony observation car, guests will enjoy many unforgettable sights, including the vast Kalahari Desert in Botswana and game-rich Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe, which houses lions, leopards, spotted hyenas, cheetahs and more.
