Rovos Rail / Durban Safari
Rovos Rail - Durban Safari

LUXURY TRAIN SAFARIS - DURBAN SAFARI WITH ROVOS RAIL

This special three day safari between Pretoria and Durban departs during the summer months and includes game drives in two varied and unique game reserves.

The train departs in the morning from Rovos Rail's Station in Pretoria and slowly meanders eastwards through the grasslands of the Highveld. It then descends the escarpment between Belfast and Waterval Onder, taking the train through what is surely the most spectacular sundowner scenery in South Africa. Awake in Malelane for breakfast as the train travels along the boundary of the world-famous Kruger Park. The safari continues south towards Swaziland for an afternoon game drive in the Mkhaya Game Reserve.

Travel overnight to the Hluhluwe Game Reserve in Zululand, sanctuary of the endangered Black and White Rhino. Enjoy an early morning game drive during which a large variety of game can be seen. The train departs mid morning and winds its way through the lush cane fields and rolling hills of KwaZulu Natal, to arrive in Durban by late afternoon where this scenic safari ends.
