The Blue Train: Kruger National Park
The iconic Blue Train is now travelling from Pretoria to Kruger National Park! Kruger is one of Africa's largest game reserves, situated between the two provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga in the northeastern part of South Africa. You'll spot elephant, lion, rhino, leopard, buffalo and numerous other unique wildlife here. Other activities include, but are not limited to, game drives, bird- watching, camping, bush walking safaris, and a visit to the Blyde River Canyon. On board The Blue Train, luxury assumes a new dimension, and becomes the working definition of everything your heart desires. You will feel it from the moment you step into your suite of choice: the twin-bedded De Luxe with shower, the double-bedded De Luxe with bath; or the twin or double-bedded Luxury suites, both with baths. All of the suites are transformed from elegant, spacious lounges by day, into sanctuaries of comfort and slumber by night.
