2. Unique Train Experiences: Rovos Rail, South Africa
South Africa is truly a whole world encompassed in one country. What better way to experience its diverse and enriched lands than a spectacle journey aboard the luxurious Rovos Rail. This train journey is sure to transport you to the golden era of rail travel including plush furnishings, decadent cuisines and great opulence.
Rovos Rail offers you a north to south bound journey between the perfect blend of busy urban and serene suburbs of Pretoria and the beautiful port city of Cape Town. As you traverse through the grasslands and the barren lands, you will stumble upon the mountain ranges and the delightful vineyards of the countryside, that creates South Africa’s spectacular verdant landscape!
You could jump aboard onto the three- night ride from Pretoria to the majestic Victoria Falls. Considered the second largest waterfalls in the world, the sheer size will leave you awestruck. But do not let that distract you from the various activities like cruises, game safari and rafting. En route, you will pass by the bustling city of Johannesburg, view the spectacular western mountains and spot the teeming wildlife at the lesser frequented Hwange National Park.
3. Unique Train Experiences: Victoria Express Train, Vietnam
If it is an Enchanting Travels experience, then of course you should expect your train journey to be complete with elegant cabins, delicious snacks and friendly service!

We present yet another unique train experience in South Africa. A journey on the Blue Train is an unforgettable experience of traversing the spectacular terrain of the subcontinent from Pretoria to Cape Town.
Be compelled by the picture-perfect windows while sitting in the lounge car and perhaps sipping on a glass of local South African wine. Alternatively, entertain yourself with some reading or a movie in the club car. Rest assured, your own private cabin will be your luxurious escape complete with your own butler.
5. Unique Train Experiences: Palace on Wheels, India
As far as unique train experiences go, the Palace on Wheels is of course a royal affair! If you are planning your trip to North India, this train journey will transport you back to the royal courts of India with its culturally infused atmosphere.
Kick start your 7 night regal adventure from New Delhi. Your first stop along the way is Jaipur, where the walls are painted pink and the streets are livened with mayhem. Each day you will explore a new city, immerse yourself in the local folklore and breath in the Rajasthani soil.
Your on board train experience will be as enriching as the one off board. Palace on Wheels is incomplete without its two dining cars, offering flavorsome and traditional dishes, and the spa salon where you can experience true Ayurvedic nirvana.
