LUXURY TRAIN SAFARIS - THE AFRICAN COLLAGE WITH ROVOS RAIL
This panoramic 3400 kilometre 9 day South African sojourn departs annually in May/June.
Travel from Pretoria eastwards to Malelane, south to Swaziland and Durban, west to Bloemfontein, then southwards again through Port Elizabeth, Oudtshoorn and George to Cape Town.
After an early morning game drive through the Kruger Park, the train heads southwards to Swaziland for an afternoon game drive. We continue into Zululand for an early morning game drive in the Hluhluwe Game Reserve and then on through KwaZulu Natal for an evening in Durban. During the night we continue onto Bloemfontein, with a morning tour of the city.
The journey continues southwards overnight to Port Elizabeth, with a morning visit to the Addo Elephant Park. An early morning departure takes the train into Oudtshoorn for a visit to an Ostrich farm followed by a spectacular rail descent down the Montagu Pass into George. After a morning visit to Knysna the train sets off from George travelling the scenic Garden Route through to Mossel Bay and Riversdale. The next morning, after a visit to the KWV Brandy Distillery in Worcester, this magnificent collage ends in Cape Town.
