The Blue Train in South Africa has become a symbol of luxury, sophistication and technological progress.  Constructed primarily in South Africa, this luxury train incorporates the latest railway technology from Britain and Germany.  Combined with The Blue Train’s reputation for comfort and excellent service, the cuisine, Irish linen, crystal and silverware enhance the pleasure of luxury train travel in the heart of some of the world’s most rugged and spectacular scenery.  The Blue Train luxury train tours are unforgettable and an experience not to be missed.


Nestled in the rolling koppies of the Little Karoo, at the foot of the Warmwaterberg, a sprawling expanse of undulating rock formations, hardy scrub vegetation and blue African skies, Sanbona Wildlife Reserve invites one to experience the peace and tranquillity of Tilney Manor, Dwyka Tented Lodge and Gondwana Lodge.  The name Sanbona, a combination of the “San” people, who occupied the area 100 years ago and ”bona” representing their vision have been combined to position this 50 000 hectare little Karoo property.  The sheer expanse of the open valleys, 6500 plant species, 150 bird species, rock faces, rock art and variety of wildlife make this a destination not to be missed.  The sheer expanse and stark beauty of Sanbona Wildlife Reserve gives one a sense of humbleness, the realization of the inconsequentiality’s of life, a temporary release of the daily stresses of everyday living and could be a deemed a profound spiritual experience. Sanbona Wildlife Reserve allows one to be at peace, allowing one to curl up with a book, seeking solitude and introspection.
