At Ceres Golf Estate, passengers disembark and then can, if they book for lunch with us, have a buffet style lunch at Ceres Golf Club. Passengers returning to Cape Town board the train again for departure back to Cape Town at around13:45 to leave at 14:00.


We then take the same route back to Cape Town for an expected arrival of around 18:30.
