This morning we had a lovely brekky, and ventured outside to take some pics of our lovely brekky view. We then freshened up, finalised our packing and went down to reception 20 minutes early for our transfer. he turned up 5 minutes later and took us not to the Cape Town railway station, but just across the road to the Rovos Rail offices, where we were met with porters, a red carpet and glasses of champagne while we checked in. The lady (who turned out to be ROhan VOS’s daughter Tiffany) told us we had an upgrade from a Pullman suite to a deluxe suite, which is very nice. We then sat around in the comfy sofas, getting to know other guests, drinking more champagne and eating dainty sandwiches without crusts. We were then called by name to be escorted across the road to our carriage and all of the features of our heritage suite were pointed out to us.
There are 35 guests on board, and we are the only Aussies. There are 4 kiwis.
