Historic routes steeped in the romance of yesteryear meet modern landscapes on a luxury rail journey to exotic destinations in Asia, Africa, and Australia. The most epic of luxury rail journeys is the Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express, which crosses seven time zones on the 8,000-mile journey between Moscow and Vladivostok. The route travels through remote Siberia and Mongolia, amassing cultural insights and authentic experiences along its path. This, however, is just one of the many amazing luxury train journeys in Asia. Consider a tour along the Silk Road or through China and Tibet. The Eastern & Oriental Express, the Southeast Asia luxury train, offers an insider perspective on the tropical landscapes and magical destinations in Thailand and Singapore; guests can uncover the Maharajas' history aboard the Palace on Wheels on an India luxury train tour.
Africa's wilds are best experienced via luxury train travel, with some of the world's most famous trains showcasing the continent's expansive game reserves, lush wine regions, and contemporary cities. An Africa luxury train journey can cover vast stretches of the continent's landscape on the trip between Kruger and Cape Town aboard the Blue Train. Rovos Rail winds through Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and South Africa on an impressive African sojourn, or step back to the Golden Age of rail travel with a journey aboard the Pride of Africa, the luxurious train connecting Pretoria and Cape Town.
Whether your tour takes you to Australia's Outback or South Africa's game reserves, the cornerstone of each itinerary is an iconic rail experience. Each feature lovingly restored rail cars, magnificent private sleeping cabins, gourmet cuisine, and deluxe amenities to ensure a grand and memorable journey.
