The Blue Train is the equivalent of a modern, boutique, luxury hotel on rails. The experience begins as you arrive at the station with some snacks and drinks before your personal butler shows you to your cabin. Large, comfortable chairs are the main feature of the room, enjoying views out of the huge window. Meals on board are excellent, with international and South African cuisine as well as an extensive wine list. There are club cars for relaxing in and enjoying a drink whilst getting to know your fellow passengers. As you enjoy your evening meal your butler will be converting those large chairs in your cabin into welcoming and comfortable beds; each cabin also has an ensuite bathroom. Thanks to high-tech dampers, the ride is wonderfully smooth, and the carriages are sound proofed and air-conditioned, ensuring that your journey passes in the greatest of comfort.
