African rail adventure with Rovos


A three-night adventure awaits the curious looking to discover all the landmarks, attractions and cultural moments between Pretoria and Victoria Falls.

Embark at Rovos Rail Station in Pretoria and enjoy the ride as the train winds through the charmingly named Warmbaths, named after its mineral waters and Nylstroom. The train then crosses the Tropic of Capricorn en route to the border with Zimbabwe and travels to Bulawayo the next morning.

The following day, guests onboard can experience a journey along one of the world’s longest stretches of straight railway line, which measures an impressive 114 kilometres, before exploring Hwange National Park, a rich and diverse wildlife sanctuary where animals can be spotted from the train and a game drive excursion from Kennedy Sliding is also available at The Hide. Dinner is served in the dining cars en route to Thompsons Junction for the overnight stop.

The following day, the adventure comes to an end at the incomparable Victoria Falls on the mighty Zambezi River. The surrounding areas offer travellers many recreational opportunities including cruises, whitewater rafting as well as superb game viewing and photo safaris.

Depending upon railway capacity, this journey could be routed through Botswana and it can also be experienced in reverse.
