African Safari Vacations - Our safaris reflect every travelers style, time frame and budget!
This three-day* 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 where animals can be spotted from the train. After a service stop at Thompsons Junction, the sojourn ends at the incomparable Victoria Falls on the mighty Zambezi River. The surrounding areas offer travellers many recreational opportunities including cruises, whitewater rafting as well as superb game viewing and photo safaris. Available in reverse. Please note that depending upon railway capacity this journey could be routed northwards through Beitbridge and Zimbabwe.
*As of 1 July 2014, the journey will include an additional night with a game drive at The Hide in Zimbabwe’s largest reserve, the Hwange National Park – one of the world’s richest and most diverse wildlife sanctuaries.
