Epic Rail Journey across Africa

A genuine once-in-a-lifetime experience: ride the world's most luxurious train on a 3-week journey that packs in a Big 5 safari, iconic sight-seeing and a tropical beach getaway as you sweep across the continent from Cape Town to Dar es Salaam.

Travel through four African countries in style as you take the super-luxurious Rovos Rail from Cape Town to Dar es Salaam and relive the days when a more glamorous approach to travel was taken.

It's an unforgettable trip through South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Tanzania - watching as the landscapes change along the way with stopovers in many fascinating destinations en route.

It's not all about the train journey though: you'll enjoy a few days in Cape Town before the trip and you'll end your journey off at a classic beach retreat on the exotic Indian Ocean island of Pemba or Zanzibar.

For a short train experience, fulfill your romantic fantasy, escape on a late afternoon train journey for sundowners while viewing the Victoria Falls from the luxury of the Royal Livingstone Express observation carbin on the Victoria Falls Bridge. The train is an all inclusive luxury rail experience rooted in the nostalgia of a bygone era. Passengers travel leisurely as the sun sets. 

This is a journey into a timeless world of grace, elegance and romance, where the natural splendor will stir your imagination and the luxurious comfort soothes your soul. This unique luxury rail restoration is an extension of the five-star Royal Livingstone Hotel. The train provides fine wining and dining as you travel through the picturesque Zambezi Valley in Pullman style coaches which have been lovingly restored to their former glory.
