Rovos Rail, South Africa

The beautifully restored carriages of Rovos Rail combine luxury travel with the chance to experience living history.

Restaurant cars, observation carriages and sleeping compartments are all restored originals from a bygone era of rail travel, with dark woods and period fittings designed for pioneering travelers and colonial grandees.

Whether you are getting to know your fellow passengers over a drink, enjoying a sumptuous silver-service dinner, or marveling at the restored steam trains that take you in and out of Rovos Rail’s own station, your time on the train will pass all too quickly.
