Amendment of The Blue Train’s Departure Time from Pretoria

In an effort to standardise their departure times from both Pretoria and Cape Town, Blue Train has advised that as of 01 April 2019, the departure time from Pretoria to Cape Town will be moved forward to 16:00 – to be the same as that of the Cape Town departures. Blue Train has advised that the off-the-train excursions and arrival times will not be affected by this change.

The change comes following the Blue Train’s new brand repositioning, announced late last year, captured in the statement, “Surrender to the Luxury of Slow”. Part of this re-launch also encompassed a new 2019 offering of a two-night journey between Pretoria and Cape Town, which has so far been well-received by both guests and the industry.
