Rovos Rail has, since its establishment in 1989, earned an international reputation for truly world class travel experiences. Classic wood paneled coaches have been remodeled and refurbished to mint condition to recapture the romance and atmosphere of a bygone era, when privileged travelers experienced the magic and mystery of Africa in a relaxed and elegant fashion. The trains - which may be hauled by steam, diesel or electric locomotives at various stages of the journey - carry a maximum of 72 passengers in 36 superbly appointed suites. Fine cuisine is served in five-star luxury as the varied scenery unfolds beyond the windows. Pride of place in the Rovos stable goes to the historic and newly rebuilt Capital Park Station and locomotive yard, which is the heart and new headquarters of this private railway company.
