WWhat can beat that feeling of going to sleep with a Karoo moon in the sky outside, and waking up to a pot of fresh coffee, surrounded by Cape vineyards as the Blue Train makes her stately way into the Mother City?
In general, the romance of a South African rail journey never disappoints, wherever you travel in this beautiful country. Whether you're continuing off on safari through the bushveld or traversing the Karoo desert, the luxury train journeys all deliver scenic beauty, dining-car pampering and the kind of exceptional service normally reserved for royalty. A popular way of integrating a train journey into your South African itinerary is to use rail to traverse the sector between Johannesburg and Cape Town.
EEach train—and their range of routes—is different. Rovos Rail, for instance, is pure nostalgic elegance harking back to the 1930s. Royal suites take up half the carriages and are named after famous money-men of the British Colonial era. Tuck yourself away in your small but comfortable apartment, or sit in the observation car at the back of the train, and take high tea or sip a glass of bubbly as the lovely scenery unfolds outside the big windows.
