Train Travel

“The conversation, like many others I had with people on trains, derived an easy candor from the shared journey, the comfort of the dining car, and the certain knowledge that neither of us would see each other again.”- Paul Theroux, The Great Railway Bazaar

Train travel is a way for you to view your world close up and at ground level. It gives you a glimpse into the world of bustling train stations yet allows you to sit back as you roll passed rural villages, rising hillsides and expansive deserts. The Maharaja Express, Eastern & Orinetal, Blue Train and Rovos Rail offer the finest train travel in the world today.
