Travel in style and elegance

Rail journeys are one of the greatest travel experiences you can have, allowing you to slow down and watch the world go by

Rail journeys are synonymous with first class travel, echoing luxury, style and a more refined way to travel through exotic and distant lands.

Be treated to the golden-age of rail travel combined modern conveniences, discreet service, world-class dining - all making a rail journey through Africa or India an unforgettable, elegant experience.

Rail journeys allow you to slow down and absorb more of what a destination has to offer in terms of vibrant cultures, beautiful vistas and wildlife all with the all too familiar and comforting clickity-clack of the train as it cruises majestically through dramatic landscapes.

Whether you choose a rail journey through Africa or India you're in for a marvellous experience.

India offers brilliant, classic rail journeys such as the Toy Trains as they meander through rural Punjab and in to the Indian Himalayas, or the scenic Mandovi Express which winds its way along the coastal route from Mumbai to Goa and beyond, crossing 2,000 bridges on the way.

Whilst in Africa you're also spoiled for choice with the Blue Rail and Rovos Rail journey which are considered to be some of the most luxuriant trains in the world

Which ever destination you settle on, you’re certainly on the right track and will finish your rail journey with fantastic stories and a plethora of new friends
