“South African rail journeys are extremely popular – since they can only hold a certain number of guests we urge you to book early to avoid disappointment.”
Make memories as you travel across South Africa by rail
Looking for an unusual and unforgettable way to explore South Africa? With so much to see, why not step aboard a luxuriously comfortable train and embark on a journey through wonderfully diverse and breath-takingly beautiful landscapes.
Recapture the romance of a bygone era and relax on board as you savour traditional cuisine and locally produced wines. Travel through spectacular scenery and take in the incredible sights as you pass grapevine-striped valleys and rugged mountain landscapes; pass the Victoria Falls and explore cosmopolitan Cape Town before visiting Soweto and uncovering its rich cultural heritage.
Then, spot the Big Five on a thrilling game drive through Kruger National Park. To discuss this itinerary in more detail, call one of our Destination Specialists and start planning your South African rail journey.
