The iconic Blue Jewel of South Africa, The Blue Train, walked away with Africa’s Leading Luxury Train accolade at the World Travel Awards Africa & Indian Ocean Gala Ceremony 2018 held in Durban.
This is the 10th year The Blue Train has won this award, since 2009.
The prestigious World Travel Awards (WTA) is an annual global travel and tourism award established in 1993, achieved by way of votes from travel and tourism professionals and consumers worldwide. A WTA accolade is the ultimate hallmark of quality worldwide and celebrates an establishment’s commitment to excellence.
“The Blue Train is as much a journey as it is a destination, and the experience has been finessed over decades and we continue to improve our offering. From the legendary 24-hour butler service, the silver service gourmet five-course meals freshly prepared on-board, to the finest cognacs and handmade Cuban cigars, The Blue Train continues to surpass the standard for luxury travel experiences,” concluded Vincent Monyake, Executive Manager at The Blue Train.
