Vacation of a lifetime- Luxury, glamour, exoticism – with these three words one can summarize what will befall travelers on Rovos Rail. However, a trip on this deck is not only about the beautiful interiors, but also the views outside the window: from picturesque Mapimalanga to the lush reed fields of KwaZulu-Natal and the unearthly Garden Route along the Cape’s southern coast.
Without a doubt, it can be said that this is the most luxurious train in the world. It is not only a journey into the depths of Africa, admiring the amazing views, but above all, service at the highest possible level. Inside there is an Edwardian style, a sense of luxury and splendor. Which is kind of a rarity when traveling between poor African villages. It should also be remembered that this luxury comes at a price. For a three-day trip you pay more than £1,000.
However, there is no shortage of those willing to do so. In order to set off on this magical train, one must form a long waiting line.
