Discover South Africa by way of a bespoke train journey through the heart of Africa, combining magnificent scenery with the glamour and excitement of the golden age of leisure travel.

In a series of journeys lasting from 48 hours to 15 days, the iconic Rovos Rail and the Blue Train link some of the continent’s greatest destinations and each journey has its own off-train excursions ranging from safari to cultural and historical outings.


The romance of a South African rail journey never disappoints, wherever you travel in this beautiful country. Whether you're continuing off on safari through the bushveld or traversing the Karoo desert, the luxury train journeys all deliver scenic beauty, dining-car pampering and the kind of exceptional service normally reserved for royalty. A popular way of integrating a train journey into your South African itinerary is to use rail to traverse the sector between Johannesburg and Cape Town.


Rovos Rail

Rovos Rail recaptures the romantic atmosphere of a bygone era and the mystery of Africa in a relaxed, elegant fashion. The exquisite dining cars are the signature of these trains, known to serve fine cuisine in ultimate Victorian luxury while the picturesque scenery of Southern Africa unfolds beyond the windows. Traditional furnishings and period décor ensure an atmosphere of elegance and grandeur in the lounge and observation cars.
