LUXURY TRAIN TRAVEL
Some experiences don’t belong in this 21st century world of hurried business and burgeoning technological life of coffee shops, connections and impatience.
100 years ago the world we live in today could not have been dreamt up by the most trustworthy of trend forecasters. Business then was done face to face in plush bars and restaurants sipping whiskies and ‘Kir Royales’. Sophisticated men wore suits, and gorgeous women in elegant fur coats and felt hats sat together chatting and laughing under the haze from the smoke of cigarettes in long holders.
Travel was done by train.
TRAIN TRAVEL IN AFRICA
Two luxury train-operating companies in Africa - Rovos Rail and the Blue Train - spare no expense in bringing back the romance of luxury train travel in Africa - where the journey is as significant as the exotic destinations. Journeys where time stands still aboard the reconditioned wood-paneled coaches and antique fittings as the African landscape flashes past - bringing new meaning to the concept of time-travel.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT ON A LUXURY TRAIN IN AFRICA?
Once aboard a luxury train in Africa you will have all you need provided. Guests sit back and relax while being served drinks and snacks, high teas and five star meals in the old world dining cart. Highlighting the experience is the evening dinner: a suave jacket-and-tie affair with a 4-course menu and exceptional choice of the very best wines. Air-conditioned suites are beautifully furnished with 24- hour room service. In keeping with the elegant reminisce atmosphere of a bygone era lounges, dining carriages and bar areas of the train are technology-free zones, and there are also no televisions on board.
