The Clickety-Clack

To many of us the sound of travelling by rail is the most engaging of all power-driven modes of transport; the absence of traffic both in front or in view provides a smooth and scenic journey free from traffic jams.

Fulfil a dream aboard South Africa’s famous Blue Train which travels between Pretoria and Cape Town and Pretoria and Durban in a 2-day rail safari of total pampering in both accommodation and dining. It offers privilege pre-boarding lounges, attentive butler service and fine cuisine throughout, delightful.

If you have ever cruised on an ocean liner then the Shongololo Express is probably the nearest you will find to a land equivalent; taking 15 nights to meander from Victoria Falls to Pretoria or Johannesburg to Cape Town; the cabins are extremely comfortable and food is superb, as are the attractions and countryside you will visit.

Steam enthusiasts should definitely book a steam train journey on a beautifully restored locomotive, such as Rovos Rail which offers the opportunity to visit a bygone era on 3-day journeys from Cape Town Pretoria plus day and overnight outings from Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth and along the Garden Route.
