When you take into account the exorbitant prices of fuel at the moment, as well as the high rates associated with domestic flights, train travel is actually one of the most cost-effective ways to get around on your South African holiday. Additionally, unlike airlines, rail operators have also been known to give discounts to children, seniors, students, AAA members, military personnel and other key demographics at times.

IT ALLOWS YOU TO APPRECIATE YOUR SURROUNDINGS
When you’re driving a car or flying in a plane, you don’t really have the time to drink in the astonishing beauty of the South African countryside. Train tracks follow unspoiled routes through the heartland of our breath-taking country and the hands-free aspect of rail travel allows travellers to sit back and truly drink in the scenery they’re passing through.
IT FREES UP YOUR TRAVEL TIME
Travelling by train is a great way to make the journey part of the adventure. When you travel by car or plane your movements are restricted and it can be hard to interact with your fellow travels on a personal level. Rail travel is a great option for couples and families who want to spend their travel time playing games or catching up.

in a variety of budget brackets, that include everything from luxury excursions on the Shongololo Express
