Good News from JB Train Tours – February 2018


Our Train tours have become Train AND Flight tours as from 1st April 2018.

We at JB Train Tours have listened to our Travel Family’s feedback and requests and we have revamped our tours to accommodate all our existing and new Travel Family members!!

Our NEW 3 in 1 tour package concept (most tours) means that you will be travelling on a Train to your destination, then by Bus at your destination, then by Flight back to your starting point – for you to experience our beautiful country to its best. We are looking forward to share it with everyone and especially you and your family/friends!

The starting date of all 2018 tours remain the same; the contents of the tour and time spent at the destination remains the same; the majority tour prices stayed the same and even reduced in some cases. One thing that will change is that the late running of trains on the return trip won’t anymore affect you negatively.

      Good morning Lorraine
      Yes there will be 8-day tours in Namibia during 2018 – all by luxury bus and staying in upmarket hotels and lodges en route. At a very competitive tour price.
      We’ve e-mailed to you this morning the Info Doc & Booking Form of the tour.
      Unfortunately the Desert Express train is out of commission and won’t be running for quite some time.
      Looking forward in welcoming you & friends on tour.
      Johan @ JB Train Tours
