Treinreis Pretoria-Kaapstad met de Blue Train

1.199,00 p.p.

Ga terug in de tijd. Reis zoals de koningen en staatshoofden van weleer aan boord van deze luxueuze, indrukwekkende stoomtrein. En bedenk dat stoomtreinen in de 19de eeuw de Kaap met Caïro moesten verbinden… De Blue Train rijdt sinds 1923, in 1998 is ze zelfs onderscheiden als ’World’s Leading Luxury Train’. Een onvergetelijke belevenis.
