RAIL & SAIL SOUTH AFRICA
Rovos - the Pride of Africa In a series of train journeys lasting from 24 hours to a fortnight, the Pride of Africa links some of Africa's greatest destinations from Cape Town to Dar es Salaam, from scenic splendors as diverse as the game reserves of Mpumulanga to the Victoria Falls, from the desert landscapes in Namibia and the stark beauty of the Karoo to the lush cane fields of KwaZulu-Natal and the magnificent garden route along the Cape South Coast.
The Shongololo Express provides a special touring experience for visitors to Southern Africa. The three journeys of between 12 to 15 days traverse South Africa, Namibia, Swaziland, Mozambique and Zimbabwe with a variety of off-train excursions. Accommodating 72 guests
in two categories of comfortable en-suite cabins with double or twin beds, the classic
wood-panelled carriages hark back to a simpler, more elegant era encompassing the
romance of African exploration.
