NAMIBIA DESERT EXPRESS

Desert Express was designed and built in Namibia, it took 250 000 man-hours during a period of 18 months to complete the construction of the train. Desert Express has been winding through beautiful Namibia since 03 April 1998, when it was officially launched by the President of Namibia, Dr Sam Nujoma. Reflecting unique colors and textures, this train was unmistakably born in Africa. Burnt amber upholstery, rich golden-red woods and animal motifs are just a few ways to tastefully echo the landscape through which you travel. Desert Express consists of nine coaches which are permanently linked via a draw bar to minimize coupling and improve ride comfort. Desert Express is highly modern, featuring all the conveniences and luxury a traveler could ask for, while maintaining friendly Namibian hospitality and excellent service
