[tabby title=”About us”]Widely regarded as one of the world’s most luxurious trains. The Blue Train is a moving 5 star hotel, the ultimate ride in absolute luxury.
Emanating from a fantasy of traveling from Africa’s southern- to northern most tips, The Blue Train was steam-rolled into being in the 1920s. Since 1946, The Blue Train in its charisma and majesty has been synonymous with luxury hospitality, tourism and leisure. It offers a unique way of experiencing some of Southern Africa’s magnificent landscapes and landmarks.

This iconic five-star “hotel on wheels” also offers a unique way for your clients to enjoy a memorable event; be it for clients’ incentives, strategic conference meetings, product launches, VIP breakfasts, lunches, dinner and cocktail parties, weddings and more.

De Luxe Suite
Your De Luxe Suite will forever alter your definition of what style and class entail. From your elegant and relaxing lounge during the day, it transforms into a subtly-lit bedroom of indulgence during the night, bedecked with goose-down and 100 per cent percale-cotton bedding, from your individually-controlled air-conditioning system, under-floor heating, opulent marble and gold-fitted bathroom, its scented bath salts and plush monogrammed towels, to the electronic entertainment options on offer.

Luxury Suite
Your Luxury Suite will enchant you from the moment your personal butler ushers you aboard. It extends the offering from a De Luxe suite even further; by an extra metre of your domain, with twin or double bedded suites which offer you long and luxurious bath tubs and a private digital interactive entertainment system, with an inviting selection of music CDs and big-screen movies on Blue-Ray DVD.
Luxury coaches have three Luxury Suites that each measure 5,13 by 2 metres and give you the option of twin beds or a double bed.
