This epic 16-day rail journey aboard Rovos Rail travels through Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa and is one of the most famous train journeys in the world. Your sojourn begins in Dar es Salaam and travels into the Selous Game Reserve, the largest on the continent and a vision of timeless Africa. Descend into the Rift Valley and witness spectacular scenery as the train negotiates the tunnels, switchbacks and viaducts of the escarpment. After passing the Tanzania/Zambia border – almost the midpoint between Africa’s two Great Rift Valley lakes – guests can enjoy a bush walk at Chisimba Falls before crossing the mighty Zambezi for an overnight stay at the colonial Victoria Falls Hotel. Continue south through Botswana to the Madikwe Game Reserve for two nights before crossing the border into South Africa. Enjoy tours of Pretoria, the diamond-mining town of Kimberley and the historic village of Matjiesfontein before traveling the winelands to your journey’s end in Cape Town.
