The Luxury Rail Travel Package
Crisp white table linen, silver cutlery, fine china and crystal glasses all evoke a bygone age. Dining on the move is one of life’s greatest pleasures, and we’re not talking airline meals here. Fine dining complemented by fine wines are what’s on offer on and Rovos Rail and The Blue Train. All of the suites and compartments on The Blue Train and Rovos Rail have private ensuite bathroom facilities, many of them have permanent beds and easy chairs and all of them have a touch of class. If you’re feeling flush (or flash) why not charter one of the trains for a special occasion or corporate event?
The Desert Express in Namibia can honestly not be described as luxury, but it is nevertheless a great experience and considerably cheaper than its more illustrious South African counterparts. It’s worth considering if you’re a fan of rail travel.
