Recapture the romance of a bygone era as you step aboard the reconditioned wood-panelled coaches and enjoy fine cuisine in five-star luxury on the famous Rovos Rail. The 48-hour train ride between Cape Town and Pretoria an experience you will never forget.

This 1,600-kilometre meander is a perfect illustration of South Africa as a world in one country. Travel the grasslands of the gold-rich Highveld to the haunting barrenness of the Great Karoo; trundle through the spectacular mountain ranges and scenic wine lands of the Cape.


Cape Town is the Mother City of South Africa, cradled by the imposing bulk of Table Mountain, Devil’s Peak and Lion’s Head. 

Other highlights include a visit to the historic village of Matjiesfontein; an authentic perfectly preserved Victorian Village.
