Incredible Train Journeys

A unique way to see Africa is to journey in style by train – and not just any train but incredible trains. The Shongololo Express and Rovos Rail are two very special trains that take travellers into Africa in a very special way. See the countryside gliding past your window as you enjoy world class facilities and service, not forgetting food and time to think. This is your incredible train journey.
The Shongololo Express takes you from Johannesburg to the mighty Vic Falls over several days of comfy and fascinating journeying. Start in Boksburg with the deal that is inclusive of breakfast and dinner and wonderful accommodation. Sleep easily to the sound of the wheels going clickety-clack all night long. From only $3 300 you get to enjoy selected day tours at the Falls and make new friends along the way.
Rovos Rail is all about luxury accommodation on wheels, an experience you will talk about for days afterwards. The dream of one man, Rohan Vos, is now the dream of many tourists who love train journeys, dressing up and relaxing as stunning scenery passes by. Appreciate your hotel facilities in the form of several luxury coaches dressed in authentic Victorian décor. There are sleeping carriages, dining carriages, smoking cars and places to party the night away. You can even hire an events train for your private party!
The height of opulence is Rovos Rail - nouvelle cuisine, fine wines and cigars on an adventure for the rich and famous into the African interior. Starting and ending in Pretoria at the previous station for steam trains, you feel as if you have stepped back in time to a gracious era where relaxation is key. Observe the best African landscapes as you journey and stay in 5-star guest houses when you reach your exotic destinations.
The highlights include dressing up for dinners in jackets and ties, cocktail dresses and high heels. Look out of open air balconies as you pass through huge game reserves and endless open landscapes.
