Rail/Train Journeys, 2 days
Ask any inveterate traveler: an exotic sojourn by rail is one of the most memorable aspects of a journey. Whether it is a short overnighter or a two week epic adventure, there is nothing quite so romantic and relaxing as a train ride!
South Africa boasts two special rail systems: The famous Blue Train (faster than a speeding bullet, sleek, gorgeous and whisper-quiet) and the historic Rovos Rail (with her endearing steam locomotive and vintage cars impeccably restored to their turn-of the- century elegance.) Both offer a 5 star ride on the rails, serving sumptuous cuisine on silver plates and aged wines sipped from fluted crystal. Accommodations are a plush as any luxe hotel room, with ensuite bathrooms, fine linens and a butler to pamper guests 24/7.
Both rail journeys offer a choice of routing, duration of journey and varying levels of cabin accommodation. The Blue Train, with modern muscle, moves faster and delivers travelers quicker to the end of the tracks. While Rovos moves with demur and studied precision, in no particular hurry to reach the journeys end. Whichever style suits your mood and travel mode, set aside a little time for a rail journey; you will be glad you did!
