A Epic Journey of Discovery

In May each year, Rovos Rail takes passengers on luxury train trips, spanning 3400 kilometres in a 7-day journey, from Pretoria to Kimberley. Centre of one of the world’s most famous diamond rushes, where there’s an opportunity to visit the Big Hole, the world’s largest man-made excavation, and to savour the 1870’s atmosphere of the mine museum village.

The scenic train route covers the stark vistas of the arid Northern Cape as the train travels through Upington to the border into Namibia. There is time for an excursion to the Fish River Canyon - second only in size to the Grand Canyon and a truly spectacular sight. The journey continues across the untamed beauty of the Kalahari Desert and onto Windhoek, the capital of Namibia. Afterwards, your Namibian safari vacation tour begins with an afternoon game drive, after which the train continues onto Tsumeb for an overnight stay at Mokuti Game Lodge on the eastern edge of Etosha National Park. On the last morning the train passes along the German built railway through the Namib Desert and into Swakopmund, a perfectly preserved nineteenth century German Hansa town set on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean.
