Itinerary Highlights

Embark on a leisurely rail journey from Pretoria to Cape Town, admiring the changing scenery, whilst indulging in the style of a bygone era. Leave the stresses of flying behind and travel, in style, to the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town. Travelling from north to south, guests will be charmed by the expertly restored carriages, impressed by the butler service and grateful for the slower pace of life. The unforgettable experience is a three day journey which includes visits to The Big Hole diamond mine in Kimberley, along with the historic buildings within the beautifully preserved Victorian spa village of Matjiesfontein. Be inspired by the incredible vistas and bushveld and savour the peaceful comfort of your luxury suite. This classic journey appeals to those seeking a luxurious experience with a shot of nostalgia, rather than simply a quick way to travel from A to B. By incorporating a Rovos Rail element to your South African adventure, guests are assured of traditional style, refined service and good company. It's a rail journey to remember - perfect for a special celebration or as part of a longer Africa itinerary.

Our Experts


I was privileged to experience a classic rail journey with Rovos Rail and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a great experience to share with someone special and guests cannot help but un-wind whilst on board. The service is excellent and it's nice to socialise with other guests. I'd recommend Rovos Rail's other journeys too, such as those which include safaris, the Victoria Falls or golf.
