South Africa has some of the most moving, distinct and dramatic landscapes this world has to offer, which can all be enjoyed from the smooth gait of a luxury locomotive pulling along its plains, swallowing up the savannah and coursing along its coastlines.
There’s also nothing more effortlessly comfortable and convenient, nor more hopelessly romantic, than travelling by luxury train through Africa. We offer a number of differing routes and trains that snake through some of South Africa’s most extraordinary scenes.
What’s more if you prefer to hop on or off at a particular point to enjoy a safari stay or a beachside break, we can incorporate this into your personalised itinerary.
When to go
Rail travel is great any time of year. Rates tend to fluctuate between the high season (September to November) and low season (January to August, and most of December).
What to do
- Recline, relax and take it all in.
