Rail journeys have always had a romantic appeal. 

JB Train Tours invite you to join us on our Special Valentine’s 2-night weekend upmarket train tour to Umhlanga in KwaZulu-Natal traveling on the upmarket Premier Classe Trans Natal train and flying back on the Sunday. 

Dates: 9 - 11 February or 16 - 18 February 2018. 

This is a short, safe and secure tour for couples. We’d like to give you the opportunity to visit Umhlanga on the KZN North Coast and enjoy the warm sea waters of the Indian Ocean, or just enjoy a relaxing romantic holiday for 2. We have limited space on both of these dates available – Space for 12 People (6 couples). 

Both these tours are scheduled over a weekend – you can therefore enjoy Umhlanga and surrounding areas to the full without taking leave from work. There is time available to have fun, participate in activities, relax and swim. You can build sand castles, kick balls or just sit and watch the ocean. 

If you’d like to visit Durban (16 kms away) you’ll have the opportunity to explore the Marine Parade, uShaka Marine World, Mini Town, the beach, craft shops, etc. and/or pay a visit to the Sun Coast casino & spectacular Moses Mabhida Soccer stadium. Perhaps you could experience a ‘Big Swing’ over the stadium! Taxi service is available from the Hotel. 

Your accommodation is in an upmarket hotel in Umhlanga, close to a shopping centre and walking distance from the Beach. Boutique restaurants and shops can be visited and explored in and around the main streets leading to the Beach. 

This tour is a combination of: Travelling by train; enjoying Umhlanga and the North Coast (at a very affordable rate); sleeping in a top hotel with lots of facilities; enjoying the beach and sea, transfer from Durban to Umhlanga, visiting the most popular tourist destinations and night clubs or just relax and then fly back home. 

Are you tired of driving, looking for accommodation and worrying about the logistics? We’ll take you there. When travelling by train, you don’t have to worry about increasing petrol prices, getting lost, tollgate fees, heavy traffic, driving back or sitting in your car. It is so much easier and VERY price competitive. Any person who is interested in visiting Umhlanga and surroundings may travel along. This tour is most suitable for couples who’d like to take a quick break from work; for people who has never been to the sea or older people who need an ‘escape’ or break from the city’s fast life.
