What you can expect from the Blue Train VIP Experience

Day 1 - Pretoria to Cape Town

PRETORIA – CAPE TOWN 

At 07h30 you will be welcomed at Pretoria Railway Station for registering and checking in. Delightful pre-departure snacks and drinks will be offered to you while your baggage is taken care of by their professional welcoming personnel. You will board the Blue Train at 08h30 and a friendly Butler will assist you to your compartment and enlighten you with a suite orientation before before the Blue train departs … underway to Cape Town.

You will be treated with Brunch and High Tea before we arrive in Kimberley by late afternoon.

In Kimberley you will be transported to the “Great Hole” for a guided tour at this legendary Open Diamond Mine Museum. You will also be taken to the Diamond Die where somebody may win a diamond and have the opportunity to walk onto the edge of the Kimberly hole in an enclosed ramp. When we return to our Train a bit later, you will have enough time to freshen up for the stylish dinner. For dinner on the Blue Train it is essential for men to wear ties and jackets or dress in traditional attire and ladies can wear evening or traditional wear. After dinner you will be able to join fellow travelers in the Club Car for a Cuban cigar or a relaxing night cap before returning to your luxury compartment for a rhythmic peaceful sleep on the moving majestic Blue Train.

Day 2 - Pretoria to Cape Town

Breakfast is served from 07h30 but can be served in-suite if you prefer. Most travelers find the “tickety-tack” of the tracks and the motion of the train hypnotic so don’t be too surprised if you find it tough to rise that next morning

From noon you can feast on a gourmet three-course lunch and by 15h00 the Blue Train will roll into the Cape Town station. This is where the Blue Train journey ends. But your VIP tour doesn’t have to stop now. From here you have many choices to choose from between different add-ons.

You will be treated with a delicious big brunch before arriving in Matjiesfontein for a 45-minute visit to this monumental little town.

When we arrive at Matjiesfontein you will be invited for a glass of sherry at the bar in a sherry glass engraved with The Blue Train logo. Your engraved glass will be one of your souvenirs from this luxury train trip of a lifetime. The Victorian style that these buildings were built in, accompanied by old London street lamps, expands the special feeling of entering yesteryear. You will get a quick guided tour through the town before you depart further on your VIP blue train journey. An impressive High tea will be served at 3:30pm. You will love the theatrical Karoo landscapes passing by while rocky ridges also glide by swiftly to create a scenic drama. Then you will have just enough time to freshen up for the stylish dinner.
