The Blue Train: Kruger National Park
The iconic Blue Train is now travelling from Pretoria to Kruger National Park! Kruger is one of Africa's largest game reserves, situated between the two provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga in the northeastern part of South Africa.
You'll spot elephant, lion, rhino, leopard, buffalo and numerous other unique wildlife here.
The Train: Follow in the footsteps of Kings and Presidents who have travelled on this magnificent, moving five-star "hotel-on-wheels". Enjoy high tea or a pre dinner drink in the elegant lounge car with its large picture windows which flood the carriage with panoramic views of the passing countryside. Should you prefer a more relaxing ambiance, then the club car offers card tables, a small library and a fully-equipped bar - as well as a fine selection of Cuban cigars. The Blue Train serves up only the best of fine dining experiences complimented by a selection of superb South African wines.
Choose from the twin-bedded Deluxe with shower, the double-bedded Deluxe with bath; or the twin or double-bedded Luxury suites, both with baths. All of the suites are transformed from elegant, spacious lounges by day, into sanctuaries of comfort and slumber by night.
