I am looking forward to taking the train from Jo-berg to Capetown this July. I had planned on using the Premier Classe but it leaves only once a week and isn’t terribly convenient for the time I have. Now I am considering the Shosholoza Meyl Tourist Classe and want to know others’ experience.
I am traveling on my own and on the Shosholoza Meyl they have you share a 4 berth compartment. Does anyone know if they would let me purchase two tickets and have a 2 berth compartment to myself? Any other reports on the Tourist Class would help me decide about it, especially if someone has done both the Tourist and Premier Classes.
