South Africa and Zimbabwe Multi Centre

Combine two of Africa's most desirable destinations; South Africa and Zimbabwe, as you travel by luxurious rail between the two. 

Start your journey in Pretoria, the Administrative capital of South Africa, which lies just a short distance from the city of Johannesberg, renowned for the inauguration of the former President Nelson Mandela. Allow yourself time to explore Freedom Park, Voortrekker Monument, Church Square and the Union Building's, so we'd recommend spending your first night in Pretoria. 

Embark the Rovos Rail in the morning from Rovos Rail Station as you begin your three night journey to Zimbabwe in ultimate luxury. Admire the spectacular views of the passing landscapes as you emmerse yourself in fine dining, and exquisite service. 

Arrive in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, where we would recommed a further three nights stay to explore one of the worlds natural wonders and it's beautiful surroundings, known as the "Smoke that Thunders". Enjoy time at leisure walking through Victoria Falls town, take a guided walk to the Victoria Falls, or for those who are seeking an adrenaline rush consider the iconic bungee jump or white water rafting. For some inspiration, we'd recommend either our Iconic Victoria Falls, or Victoria Falls & Hwange tour.

To see these in full bloom, where you will experience a beautiful purple haze, we'd suggest travelling in October and November.
