"The most luxurious train in the world..."
Train travel has always held a romantic fascination for us and Rovos Rail is by far one of the most magical and memorable travel experiences we’ve had. If you’ve ever seen Out of Africa, when Meryl Street travels across Kenya by steam train with her crystal and bumps in to Denis Finch-Hatton for the first time, you’ll know what we mean.
Think slowly winding through Acacia trees in beautifully refurbished wood-panelled carriages with double beds and en-suite bathrooms (some of which even have claw foot baths…).
Think afternoon teas, fine dining and champagne. There are several routes to choose from within South Africa, as well as to Namibia and Victoria Falls and epic, once in a lifetime rail journeys crossing the whole continent from East to West. This really is one of the greatest experiences in the world.
