This picturesque 550-kilometre 1 night trip runs between Cape Town and George during the summer months and is rated one of the most beautiful in the world. From the Mother City the train travels through the Du Toits Kloof tunnel towards Worcester. Grapes are grown in vast quantities in this area, and apart from several co-operative wine cellars, there are a number of brandy distilleries.

From Cape Town the train travels along the Breê River Valley towards Robertson and then onto Ashton. A well known wine farm is visited on the Cape Town to George routing (the KWV Brandy Distillery in Worcester is visited on the reverse routing)

Then it is on towards the coast passing through stations such as Swellendam, South Africa’s third oldest town. Leaving the coast behind the train passes near Mossel Bay, a commercial seaport that enjoyed a boom in the 1990’s due to the discovery of offshore oil. George is a quiet inland town, founded in 1811 and named after King George 111.
