Join this small group tour, departing 31 January 2023 on board Rovos Rail, one of the most luxurious trains in the world, for a journey through Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa.
This epic Rovos Rail expedition is one of the most famous train journeys in the world. Shortly after the bustling departure from Dar es Salaam, traverse the fertile lands of Tanzania to the Selous Reserve, the largest on the continent and a vision of timeless Africa. Travel the jungled Udzungwa Mountains and negotiate the dramatic switchbacks, viaducts and tunnels of the escarpment. Pass baobab forests and ascend the Rift Valley to the border, almost exactly the midpoint between Africa’s two Great Rift Valley lakes. Join the TAZARA railway line – an engineering tour de force – as it passes through remote territory to Chishimba Falls where a rock-pool excursion is enjoyed. Cross the mighty Zambezi River into Victoria Falls and explore one of the natural wonders of the world. Travel south along the edge of the Kalahari Basin to Madikwe to enjoy the Big Five. After a tour of South Africa’s capital, Pretoria, traverse the Karoo with visits to Kimberley’s Diamond Mine Museum and the historic village of Matjiesfontein before descending through the winelands to journey’s end in Cape Town.
Step aboard the vintage wood-panelled coaches and sit back as some of the most varied scenery imaginable unfolds beyond the windows. With discreet and friendly service, top cuisine and a selection of South Africa’s finest wines, Rovos Rail harks back to a simpler, more elegant era encompassing the timeless grace and high romance of African exploration.
The beautifully rebuilt trains, which may be hauled by diesel or electric locomotives, carry a maximum of 72 passengers in 36 superbly appointed suites.
