Rail journeys

The opulent days of rail travel have been recaptured in Africa by some of the finest train companies in the world. The Blue Train, Rovos Rail and the Shongololo Express evoke the romance and ambience of a bygone era, when privileged travellers experienced the magic and mystery of Africa in a relaxed and elegant fashion.

Rail journeys can last between 24 hours and 28 days and can visit a diverse range of African nations, including: South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Tanzania, Uganda, the Sudan and Egypt. Train travel takes you on a journey of discovery and you have the unique advantage of not having to pack up and move every few days.
