Rovos Rail - Pretoria to Cape Town - Hero

Rail Journeys

This luxury rail trip promises the romance of a bygone era as you journey aboard an authentically refurbished Edwardian-style train from Cape Town to Pretoria. It’s an amazing experience that will find you winding through the Winelands, ascending escarpments, touring diamond mines and travelling across semi-arid desert plains. View the incredible scenery, which gently unfolds beyond the window, as you sit back and enjoy the elegant surroundings. Everything is catered for with scenic fine-dining lunches and evening meals taken in the dining car, and afternoon teas enjoyed either in the lounge or the observation cars. Dressing up for dinner is as romantic as it sounds. With discreet and friendly service, top cuisine and a selection of South Africa’s finest wines, Rovos Rail harks back to a simpler, more elegant era encompassing the timeless grace and high romance of African exploration. Enjoy the journey . . .
