Victoria falls safari
This three-night adventure begins with the train’s departure from Rovos Rail Station in
Pretoria. It then winds its way south through Johannesburg and the goldfields of the
Witwatersrand before travelling west alongside the Magaliesberg Mountains.
After border formalities at Mafikeng, the train travels north the following day through Botswana’s capital, Gaborone, crosses the Tropic of Capricorn and continues via Francistown to the Zimbabwean border at Plumtree.
The next day the train passes through Hwange National Park – a rich and diverse wildlife sanctuary where animals can be spotted from the train and a game drive excursion is enjoyed. After a service stop at Thompsons Junction, the sojourn ends at the incomparable Victoria Falls on the mighty Zambezi River. The surrounding areas offer travellers many recreational opportunities including cruises, whitewater rafting as well as superb game viewing and photo safaris.
Available in reverse. Depending upon railway capacity, this journey could be routed through Beitbridge and Zim.
