What our clients say


A trip aboard Rovos Rail is a journey like no other. Experience the opulent elegance of rail travel on the most luxurious train in the world on one of Rovos Rail’s exceptional safaris through the heart of Africa. Combining some of the most magnificent scenery with the glamour and excitement of the golden age of rail travel, Rovos Rail will delight the most discerning traveller.

With discreet and friendly service, five-star cuisine and a selection of South Africa’s finest wines, Rovos Rail harks back to a simpler, more elegant era – encompassing the timeless grace and high romance of African exploration.

The Royal, Deluxe and Pullman suites on board house a maximum of 72 passengers, offering accommodation of the highest standard combining the grandeur of pre-war travel with subtle modern innovations.

There is no better way to enjoy the rolling vistas and dramatic sunsets of the African wilds than from the open-air balcony at the end of each observation car – a delight for passengers as the train rarely exceeds 60 kilometres - and with windows that open and close, guests’ senses are truly stirred by the vast and diverse African landscapes.

Trains depart regularly from Rovos Rail Station in Pretoria for Cape Town, Durban and Victoria Falls with longer journeys operated on an annual basis. These include two golf itineraries, of nine days, each with delightful programmes for non-golfers. There is another nine-day safari to Swakopmund in Namibia as well as the two-week adventure to Dar es Salaam.
