Package Tour - Victoria Falls to Cape Town by Rovos Rail

Categories: Luxury / Rail / Sightseeing

This relaxing six-day journey commences in the incomparable Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and ends in majestic Cape Town. The train journey departs on a Sunday from the Victoria Falls and heads in a south-easterly direction towards Bulawayo. Border formalities will take place at both Plumtree and Mafikeng as the train heads for South Africa via Zimbabwe and Botswana.

We arrive in Pretoria at 17h00 on Tuesday where you will be introduced to our beautifully appointed station and 60 acre property. Transfer to your hotel for overnight. You may participate in an optional tour of the city or have the morning at leisure before rejoining the train at 15h00 on Wednesday.

The adventure continues on Thursday where we disembark in Kimberley for a guided tour of the world’s largest manmade excavation, the ‘Big Hole ‘and it’s supporting Mine Museum. Next stop will be at Matjiesfontein on Friday morning. Your tour of this historic village may include a visit to the impressive museum on the platform, the motorcar and railway carriage museum, or a wander through the Lord Milner Hotel and its delightful grounds.

Enjoy the spectacular mountain ranges and scenic wine lands of the Cape as we head towards the Mother City of South Africa, Cape Town, cradled by the imposing bulk of Table Mountain, Devils’ Peak and Lions Head. Please note that depending upon railways capacity this journey could be routed northwards through Beitbridge and Zimbabwe.
