The Premier Classe train offers luxury accommodation, fine dining, personal assistance and a scenic train experience within South Africa. The Premier Classe's unique contemporary style provides an excellent opportunity to enjoy the scenic attractions South Africa has to offer.

Introduction The Premier Classe was first introduced in 2001 with only four coaches accommodating 24 guests. In 2006 it became a dedicated luxury train with eleven coaches accommodating 84 guests, travelling from Johannesburg to Cape Town (and back) twice a week. Other destinations to which the Premier Classe travel are Durban and Hoedspruit. The new Premier Classe train set, that was introduced in October 2007 comfortably accommodates 126 guests.


Discover the refinement of luxury train travel
The moment you board the air-conditioned Premier Classe train, you’ll step into a world that recaptures the long lost elegance of luxury train travel and the personalised service of a bygone era. At the same time, you’ll enjoy the technology and sophistication of the fast paced, modern world around you. While we accommodate 126 passengers in sheer luxury, you’ll enjoy the attention to detail of our spacious compartments and lavishly appointed bathrooms.

At your service
When you’re in the hands of Premier Classe staff, you’ll notice that attention to detail is something that has made us famous. Any one of our friendly staff members will avail themselves to assist you at any time during your journey. It’s our way of making sure that you can relax while enjoying your stay with us. Guests can enjoy a fully inclusive train experience which offer luxury accommodation in coaches, welcoming drinks and snacks, breakfast, lunch, dinner and all teas & coffees. All other beverages including alcoholic beverages are not included but can be paid for when requested. Tea and coffee is served while you relax in the comfort of the lounge at the Johannesburg and Cape Town stations. Our friendly staff members will introduce themselves and then take care of your luggage for you. And with half an hour to go before departure, you’ll be invited to board the train. You’ll be given a personal tour of the coaches, giving you the opportunity to familiarise yourself with all the luxuries that Premier Classe has to offer.  And while you settle in, the wheels are gently put into motion and your experience with us begins.
