Each suite has a fully appointed en suite, featuring either a bath or a shower. All suites are equipped with a TV and individually controlled air-conditioning. A video channel allows guests to access short documentaries about the area through which the train is traveling. The Deluxe suite has a choice of twin-beds suite with a shower or a double-bed suite with a three-quarter size bath. The Luxury suite has a choice of twin-beds or double bed, and a full size bath with hand shower.

The journey takes you from Pretoria to Cape Town. En-route, stop in Kimberly for an off-the-train excursion to visit the Kimberly Mine Museum and the 'Big Hole'.  Kimberly was once the epicenter of a worldwide diamond rush. The following morning, awaken to the sight of vineyards and orchards as you descend through mysterious and beautiful valleys and mountains towards Cape Town's imposing and instantly recognizable Table Mountain.
