Recapture the romance of a bygone era as you step aboard the reconditioned wood-paneled coaches and enjoy fine cuisine in five-star luxury. Since its establishment in 1989, Rovos Rail has earned an international reputation for its truly world-class travel experiences.
The trains – which may be hauled diesel or electric locomotives at various stages of the journey – carry a maximum of 72 passengers in 36 superbly appointed suites. Pride of place in the Rovos stable goes to the historic and restored Capital Park Station and locomotive yard, which is the heart and headquarters of this private railway company.
The Cape Town Journey is one of the most popular journeys. Rediscover the old pioneering trail of the Karoo. Travel the grasslands of the gold-rich Highveld to the haunting barrenness of the Great Karoo. Trundle through the spectacular mountain ranges and scenic winelands of the Cape. Journey’s end is Cape Town, the Mother City of South Africa, cradled by the imposing bulk of Table Mountain.
