A backpackers on the Beach in Mossel Bay
The Santos Express Train Lodge is a genuine train situated on Santos Beach, Mossel Bay. It offers a unique stay in double compartments or single coupes similar to the Trans Karoo. The cabins all face the sea and with the ocean so close, you can’t really beat it for position and exquisite views. An invigorating sea breeze keeps everything cool, even on hot days.
Their single and double rates include a free continental breakfast at their happening restaurant and bar that serves breakfast all day. Delicious steaks, seafood and traditional meals are served in the restaurant bar and on the sundeck.
Their staff are on the ball and can help with all travel and adventure arrangements such as shark cage diving, boat-based whale watching, sky diving, game drives, quad biking, deep-sea fishing and trips to Seal Island.
They’re conveniently located too, with a 5 - 10 minute walk taking you to the Dias Museum Complex, harbour and town centre.
Good views, good food, good location. What more could you possibly want?
