Rovos Rail

First Class A very comfortable hotel, with air-conditioning, at least one restaurant and bar, and most with a swimming pool.

Rovos Rail has been a legend of luxury since its establishment more than 15 years ago. It has earned an international reputation for its truly world-class travel experiences. Step aboard the wood-paneled coaches - classics remodeled and refurbished to mint condition - and enjoy fine cuisine in five-star luxury as some of the most varied scenery imaginable unfolds beyond the windows.

Recapture the romance and atmosphere of a by-gone era, when privileged travelers experienced the magic and mystery of Africa in a relaxed and elegant fashion. This beautifully restored steam train has wood paneled salons, a five star restaurant on wheels, and an intimate bar and lounge. In the tradition of the great trains of the world, passengers "dress" for dinner.

The main route travels from Cape Town to Pretoria and vice-versa. In between there will be stops at Matjiesfontein, Kimberley, and wonderful views along the way. In addition, the train also travels between Pretoria and Victoria Falls.
