The Blue Train


An opulent and glamorous travel experience that recalls the grand splendor of the Orient Express, the Blue Train offers a way to immerse yourself in the magnificent landscapes of Africa through an epic rail journey traveling in pure luxury and style. From elegant pre-departure VIP lounges where guests are welcomed with a cocktail and impeccable service, to life onboard the train itself, expect lavish suites in which to sleep and relax in supreme comfort; sumptuous lounges with immense windows in which to savor the view over a cigar and a whisky, a game of cards or traditional English tea. In addition to the superlative views you’ll enjoy fine dining and a dedicated butler on hand to cater to every requirement; these all combine to create a truly exclusive and unforgettable way to see Africa.

While there are different options for Blue Train journeys from Cape Town, including chartering the train for specially tailored business or pleasure trips, we highly recommend combining this stunning travel experience with a luxury safari package at the Ivory Tree Game Lodge, leaving from Pretoria. One can choose to take the Blue Train from Cape Town to Pretoria, an unmissable 27-hour adventure through some of the most glorious landscapes on the planet, or instead choose a two-hour flight to the region for convenience and speed. Once on the train from Pretoria, guests enjoy a spectacular journey in style and comfort to Pilanesberg National Park.

They spend two nights at the five-star Ivory Tree Game Lodge, enjoying a complimentary spa voucher and luxury accommodation, and take four game drives to the surrounding area to experience some of Africa’s most diverse and breathtaking wildlife. A panoramic return journey on the Blue Train completes this exceptional experience.
