Rail Holidays Worldwide
If your interests begin on the far side of usual then consider a rail holiday on one of the world’s most exclusive train journeys. Whether crossing the wild African veldt aboard the opulent Rovos Rail service or travelling through the heat and humidity of the Asian rain forests in air-conditioned comfort there is a holiday to suit your needs. Visit the Indian sub-continent and experience luxurious Indian hospitality with the Maharajas' Express. Perhaps consider travelling through the sunbaked middle of Australia aboard the magnificent Ghan or climb into the clouds to Machu Picchu on the Hiram Bingham.
There are many remarkable day trains in the world; whether close to home or afar. The greatest excitement though is when you are spending overnight on one. The sun sets and the scenery outside disappears into flashes of shadows. The conductor or carriage attendant has turned down your bed when you were enjoying your meal and you return to your cabin not drowsy but with an expectant excitement for the night and day ahead. You climb into your bed and smile at your reflection in the window as the background hum of the diesels confirms that you are indeed racing toward your next destination as you slumber.
You can spend just one night or, on some trains, a week or more travelling from place to place. It’s always exciting, always full of anticipation and, upon your return; you immediately begin planning your next rail adventure.
