In December 2012 my family (2 teens) travelled on the Shoshaloza Meyl Premier class form Cape Town - Johannesburg as the ultamate end to a lovely holiday spent on a boat trip. What a disappointment. The cleanliness on the coaches really needs to be jacked up, it is simply just not acceptable. The food served in the dinning coach was very basic, as was "high tea", lunch and breakfast. We had no water to shower with in our communal shower, and the toilets had no hand towels and needed a long desired scrub! It is such a pitty, because the route is lovely and senic. We accepted the delays (brake problems) in the middle of the Karoo, in the middle of the day! (very hot and no air-con), but for clean and well maintained coaches there simly are no excuses. Definitely not value for money!!!
