Pretoria to Victoria Falls via Rovos Rail

Rovos Rail


A journey on the Rovos Rail is a truly wonderful experience.  The use of traditional furnishings, fine wood panelling and period decor throughout all the coaches transport you immediately back to a time when privileged travellers were fortunate to experience the magic and mystery of Africa in a relaxed and elegant, and almost grandeur, fashion. 

The wood panelled sleeping coaches offer guests a choice of spacious air-conditioned twin or double bedded Royal, Deluxe or Pullman suites, with every modern convenience and comfort sitting comfortably alongside the period Edwardian features, including a bar fridge, and an en-suite bathroom with either a Victorian bath and separate shower, or just a shower.  The elegant Royal suites in particular are the epitome in luxury - each suite takes up half a carriage, and has its own private lounge area. Each coach has its own personal history - some date back as early as 1911, others have carried royalty, but each and every coach has been meticulously restored.

Relive the romance of a bygone Africa on a nostalgic 3 night/4 day expedition from Pretoria to one of the 7 natural wonders of the world, the famous Victoria Falls.

This 3 night adventure begins with the train's departure from Rovos Rail's gracious station in Pretoria. It then winds its way south through Johannesburg and the goldfields of the Witwatersrand before travelling west alongside the Magaliesberg Mountains. After border formalities at Mafikeng, the train travels north the following day through Botswana’s capital, Gaborone, crosses the Tropic of Capricorn and continues via Mahalapye and Francistown to the Zimbabwean border at Plumtree. The next day the train passes through Hwange National Park - a rich and diverse wildlife sanctuary - where animals can be spotted from the train and a game drive excursion is enjoyed. After a service stop at Thompsons Junction, the sojourn ends at the incomparable Victoria Falls on the mighty Zambezi River.
