Have you ever been on a train as it passes along a stunning landscape? You think, if only the train would stop right here so I could explore and take in the sights some more... That dream can now become a reality by hopping on The Santos Express! This stationary train sits just under 100 feet from Santos Beach in Mossel Bay, South Africa. Perfect for those who want the convenience of beachside lodging, this train offers plenty of amenities to keep guests happy.
The Santos Express is made up of 5 coaches, 4 of which are identical. These four include five compartments that can sleep up to six people, as well as two toilets and a shower. The fifth coach is perfect for solo travelers – it’s a 16-bed dorm, complete with a lounge area! If you’re looking for a luxury stay on the Santos Express, book one of their newest Royal Suites. These vintage wooden coaches were transported from England and include gorgeous furnishings, including a clawfoot tub!
The Santos Express is also home to the Fork and Train Restaurant which specializes in seafood – not surprising given its location! Menu items include fresh oysters, garlic snails, ostrich salad, and more. Great food paired with million-dollar views are just a train ride away!
