Planning a luxury train holiday? Rovos Rail has the most luxurious train in the world. Their tours are an harmonious blend of earthy African safari and traditional luxury. Recapture the romance and atmosphere of a bygone era as you step aboard our reconditioned wood-panelled coaches and enjoy fine cuisine in five-star luxury.
All of the trains are either hauled by diesel, steam or electric locomotives and are made up of a generator car, staff car, guest sleepers, a non-smoking lounge car (26 guests), two non-smoking 42-seat dining cars (if required, plenty of space for the maximum of 72 guests carried), kitchen car, guest sleepers, smoking lounge and Observation Car (32 guests) at the tail.
Meals are served in one sitting only in the charming Victorian atmosphere of the dining cars and are complemented by a selection of fine South African wines. An enthusiastic team of chefs is responsible for overseeing the very important task of ensuring guests’ every need is catered for. There’s an accent on fresh local ingredients and traditional dishes such as game are a specialty. In maintaining the spirit of travel of a bygone era, there are no radios or television sets on board.
The use of mobile phones, laptops and essentially anything that has the ability to disturb other passengers is confined to the privacy of your suites only.
You just have to choose your itineraries and start unforgettable voyage. Wherever journey you choose: Cape Town, Victoria Falls, Durban Safari, Golf Safar, African Collage, Namibia Safari, Dar Es Salaam or some Special Package, you can be sure this is an experience not to be missed.
