Premier Classe depends on staff to deliver premium service!

At the same time, you’ll enjoy the technology and sophistication of the fast paced, modern world around you. While the train accommodates 126 passengers in sheer luxury, you’ll enjoy the attention to detail of spacious compartments and lavishly appointed bathrooms.

As we sneaked off to Bloemfontein for the annual Macufe last week, guests aboard-old and new- had a splendid time.

Albeit the organizers had a ‘tiff’ with guests, especially Botswana entourage which comprised of professionals in the medical field on the ‘Divas’ show on Friday, sanity finally prevailed when senior Prasa officials managed to remedy the situation having to alternatively arrange tickets for another show.    

Young and old mingled, danced to the fine tunes whilst enjoying chilled glass of their favourite brand, though…

The purpose of the rail transport in the country, has much to do with myths on safety and affordability.

Rail infrastructure, thanks to multibillion investments by Prasa, the state agency which owns both Premier Classe and Shosholoza, amongst others, has seen the revitalization of rail transport improving significantly over the last 8 to 10 years’ in the country.

Part of Prasa’s mandate is to invest and rehabilitate rail infrastructure countrywide. And Premier Classe has thus far seen that benefit.

As a Premier Classe guest, you have the luxury of choice. A selection of different room types on-board the opulent sleeping coaches offers superb accommodation for the weary holidaymaker.

You can choose between compartments that comfortably accommodates 2, 3 or 4 guests, and the one for a single traveller.

Ok, the story of a personal phone in your compartment does not exist but hopefully this could change with all these investments.

Yes, very often than not staff are on the receiving end. Let me take my hat off to them for they have mannerism and are customer-friendly of which most lack by far within the hospitality industry.

Legend has it that, when you want to explore your country or the world use the only convenient mode of transport which would allow you to smile, find tranquil and dance. And unquestionably that would be rail transport!

Premier Classe provides three-course meal and a glass of your favourite wine. However, medley of fruits and other soft drinks are also on offer for the under age.

Another exciting element, is that it has a specially designed truck that can accommodate up to eight cars (must book three months in advance) for those who prefer taking their cars along, between Johannesburg and CT only.

Enjoy a leisurely but efficient luxury train ride from Johannesburg to Durban return, or Johannesburg to Cape Town return, now including PE.

Forget airport delays, rush hour traffic and cramped airline seats and cushion yourself in elegant comfort as you soak up the stunning views of sea, mountains, deserts and plains.

So, wanna enjoy the tapestry this majestic country has to offer, book yourself into this “moving hotel” and be pampered with premium reception.
