South Africa's Blue Train

A five-star hotel on wheels, South Africa’s Blue Train is synonymous with luxurious train travel. As you might expect, much of the train is coated in rich dark blue accents which, when combined with the light wood panels and subtle animal prints, gives an immediately sumptuous feel. Suites boast golden chaises that sit before wide windows offering an undistracted view of South Africa, while high tea or a pre-dinner aperitif can be found in the lounge. The dining car offers formal dining with multi-course dinners paired with South African wines.Handout
