Rail Safari Tours in Africa

Rovos Rail and the Blue Train are perfect if you want to be pampered in luxury accommodation with world-class service, African-inspired culinary delights and a relaxed atmosphere.

The most popular route for both trains is Cape Town to Pretoria (or vice versa). Rovos Rail does the journey over three days and the Blue Train manages it in two. Both offer luxurious cabins with a 24-hour butler service. There are also observation lounges where you can get to know the other passengers, read a book or play a board game. The rates include all meals and drinks while on board, as well as off-board excursions to the Victorian village of Matjiesfontein and the diamond museum and Big Hole in Kimberley.

Experience the romance of luxury train travel, sip cocktails dine in style, watch the countryside roll by and let the train rock you to sleep
