In a series of train journeys lasting from three to fourteen days, Rovos Rail links some of Africa’s greatest  destinations; from Cape Town at the tip of Africa, to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania; from scenic splendours as diverse as the game reserves of Mpumalanga to Victoria Falls; from the desert landscapes in Namibia
and the stark beauty of the Karoo to the lush cane fields of KwaZulu-Natal and the magnificent Garden Route. 

Step aboard the wood-panelled coaches and enjoy fine cuisine in 5-star luxury as some of the most varied scenery imaginable unfolds beyond the windows. Recapture the romance and atmosphere of a bygone era, when privileged travellers experienced the magic and mystery of Africa in elegant fashion.

The trains carry a maximum of 72 passengers in 36 superbly appointed suites. The epitome of luxury, with wood panelling and Edwardian features, the air-conditioned suites accommodate two people, with the option of twin or double beds. In the ensuite bathrooms, original fittings combine with the modern
technology of hot showers, hairdryers and shaver plugs.
