The Blue Train's 2020 Safari Makeover


In 2019 South Africa’s legendary Blue Train reinvented its classic Cape Town/Pretoria journey, extending it to a 2-night “slow travel” experience.

Now they are giving their Hoedspruit safari departures a complete makeover for 2020 – making it a round trip including sunrise & sunset Big 5 game drives, a boma dinner under the stars and even some traditional cultural dancing!

Previously, The Blue Train offered a one-way, overnight journey from Pretoria to Hoedspruit (or vice versa) leaving guests to check into one of the Sabi Sands/Greater Kruger Lodges for a few nights.

Now the train will be offering its safari departure as a RETURN ROUND-TRIP to the Kruger that will depart Pretoria mid-morning on Day 1, arrive at the Kruger National Park early the next morning for a full day guided safari including sunrise and sunset game drives. The train will then depart at after dinner to head back to Pretoria, arriving around noon on day 3.

There will only be two departures in 2020 namely: 18 - 20 June 2020 and 30 July - 01 August 2020.
