The Desert Express:
Namibia’s unique rail experience offers an overnight weekend get-away from Windhoek to our coastal towns –Swakopmund and Walvis Bay.

The Desert Express differs from other tourist trains in that it is highly modern, featuring all the conveniences and luxury a traveller could ask for, while maintaining friendly Namibian hospitality and excellent service. There are 24 fully air-conditioned compartments, in 4 sleeper coaches, each with its own en-suite facilities. Each compartment converts to a private lounge during the day and can accommodate up to three passengers.
