Many visitors to South Africa be-dazzle the country in amazement during on the luxurious 51 hour Pretoria – Cape Town or vice versa train voyage. This 1600 kilometer ride perfectly illustrates how South Africa is a world in one country.

The carriages meander through the grasslands of the gold-rich Highveld into the haunting barrenness of the Great Karoo before exposing the internationally famous mother city of Cape Town. Visitors, both foreign and local, gaze in amazement onto the famed Table Mountain, Devil’s Peak and Lions Head cradling the mother city and thus creating a natural geographic amphitheatre.
