Rovos Rail, is offering a unique opportunity to Luxury Steam Train enthusiasts worldwide to travel on board The Pride of Africa under steam haulage for almost the entire journey. This nostalgic, luxury journey will be available for either groups or individual ticket sales and should be of special interest to preservation societies and steam heritage groups. The locomotives used at various stages will include 19D and 25NC.
This 9-night / 10-day journey is not a regular scheduled routing operated by Rovos Rail and being hauled entirely under steam makes it unique and exciting. En route we will stop at Hwange, Matobo Game Reserves and Antelope Park for game drives and visit the Bulawayo Rail Museum before entering Botswana en route to South Africa. The train will comprise 29 Pullman Suites & 5 Deluxe Suites (68 passengers maximum), a lounge car, dining car and observation car.
