Rovos Rail, Cape Town, South Africa

Traveling on Rovos Rail is partly a luxurious and grand way to cross the continent of Africa and the chance to experience some living history.

All of the carriages are restored rolling stock from a bygone era of rail travel, and the dark wood and period fittings of your cabin will take you back to a time when the journey was as important as the destination.

Whether you are getting to know your fellow passengers in the convivial surroundings of the observation car, or enjoying a sumptuous dinner with the finest silver service, your time on the train will pass all too quickly.
