Luxury train safari trips through the Old Karoo Pioneering Trail

For many visitors to South Africa, luxury train trips are the finest way to see the country. The popular 48-hour weekly journey between Pretoria and Cape Town is a 1600-kilometre journey and a perfect illustration of South Africa as a world in one country.

Luxury train trips through the rainbow nation offer the visitor an opportunity to travel the grasslands of the gold rich Highveld to the haunting barrenness of the Great Karoo. Trundle through the spectacular mountain ranges and scenic wine lands of the Cape. Journey’s end is Cape Town, the Mother City of South Africa, cradled by the imposing bulk of Table Mountain, Devil’s Peak and Lions Head.

Highlights of the north and southbound luxury train trips include a visit to the historic village of Matjiesfontein. This authentic perfectly preserved Victorian Village, which was founded by Mr Logan as a refreshment stop in 1890, also boasts an impressive museum on the platform. A stop is made in Kimberley providing an opportunity to enjoy a city tour and a visit to the Mine Museum and the world’s largest man-made excavation, the Big Hole.
