Dubbed the most luxurious train in the world, the magnificently restored wood-panelled cabins, the five star comforts and the sweeping views of the African landscape outside will transport you far away from modern day stresses. An enthusiastic team of chefs is responsible for the gourmet cuisine served in the charming Victorian atmosphere of the dining car. There is an accent on fresh local ingredients and traditional speciality dishes. Meals are complemented by a selection of fine South African wines. A beautifully restored observation car with open air balconies and enlarged windows is attached to the back of each train, creating a comfortable haven for relaxation and the enjoyment of the scenery that you are passing through. The alternative non-smoking lounge car in the middle of the train is furnished with deep sofas and plush wingback chairs.
