Rovos Rail

Recapture the moments when privileged travellers’ of yesteryear experienced the breathtaking scenery that this diverse country has to offer from the comfort of this elegant train.

We love the stylish, opulent suites which have been lovingly restored in the traditional Edwardian design.  With just 72 guests there is plenty of space for you to find that quiet area to read a book, take a nap or gaze at the dramatic scenery which will constantly change before your eyes.

Meal times are a wonderful affair for those of us who still love to dress for dinner.  For the ladies it is a chance for you to don your favourite cocktail dress while the men will dress to impress in their jacket and tie.  Fresh local produce and traditional dishes are accompanied by sensational South African wine.

Rovos offer a selection of routes and durations which will appeal to all.  Two of the most popular being the two-night trip from Pretoria to Cape Town and the two-night trip from Pretoria to Victoria Falls.

Each of the four trains operated by Rovos are superbly restored and feature a lounge car, a glass-ended open balcony observation car for fantastic viewing, a smoking club lounge and one or two dining cars.


What’s included on your trip?

Whichever route you choose, you will have an array of on-land excursions to keep you entertained.  All sumptuous meals prepared by gourmet chefs, beverages and alcohol are included while you are on board.

The experiences you will enjoy from travelling on arguably one of the most luxurious trains in the world we are sure will be etched in your memory for years to come.
