Thousands of spectators boarded the BR passenger train this weekend to enjoy the Toyota 1000 Desert Race, in the process discovering the true meaning of train tourism and partying in the passenger train.

For the first time ever, people enjoyed entertainment on a public train. It was party on the train with Mr O on the decks dishing out the best sets for the desert race revellers. Pictures and videos of the epic blue train fun circulated on social media. Those who missed out on the fun wished they were.

People danced and enjoyed drinks as the train took them to destination Desert Race. The train arrived just after 4am and the revellers were in the right mood to continue the fun and explore sample Phikwe. It is not everyday in Botswana that a person boards a train only to partying until the final destination. Addressing the media just some few hours after arrival, Botswana Railways (BR) Director of Business Development, Steven Makuke said the occasion was a great experience and a start of bigger things to come.
