The Blue Train : What's New In 2019?

What's New In 2019?


As the Blue Train continues to re-invent itself and improve on the already spectacular service they offer their guests, there are some exciting changes for 2019:

  • 2 luxurious nights instead of 1
  • Both guests travelling from Pretoria or Cape Town will now experience a uniform, guaranteed 2 ½ hour off-the-train excursion in Kimberley.
  • Extra meals served with a wide variety of menus to choose from
  • Dress code: Smart casual during the day and formal for dinner (gentlemen are requested to at least wear a jacket or waistcoat / ladies elegant).
  • Late afternoon/evening departures, allowing guests to land in South Africa on the same day of departure or enjoy a day tour, or if arriving the evening before guests can sleep in
  • Limited delays with off peak departures/arrivals. Allows for guests to book flights or other forward arrangements on the day of Blue Train's arrival.Guests can also book flights or other forward arrangements on the day of the Blue Train's arrival without the possible anxiety of missing these due to train delays
