The Holiday Express – Train to Shongweni or Scottburgh

With winter almost behind us, why not plan a family trip down the coast or into the countryside? Even better, make it an out-of-the-ordinary train trip on The Holiday Express!

The Holiday Express, operating the modern KZN Business Express, has arranged superb family orientated one-day train outings to the Shongweni Farmers and Craft Market on Saturday 26 August and to Scottburgh on Sunday 27 August./h2>

The Holiday Express departs conveniently from the security of the Premier Lounge, Durban Station (Jelf Taylor Street) with its own private platform. Convenient, boom-protected parking is available immediately outside the Lounge.

Travelling time is approximately one hour to Shongweni and 90 minutes to Scottburgh, with a selection of refreshments available on board.

During October, November and December The Holiday Express will be available for corporate groups on any Thursday by arrangement, or on other days by special arrangement and trips can be arranged to Scottburgh, Nottingham Road, Salt Rock and Ballito.

A very special Christmas Eve outing is planned for Umhlali following the successful trip enjoyed by so many in 2015.
