Day by Day Itinerary Back to Trips for South Africa

Rovos Rail

The Pride of Africa travels the intriguing and varied 1600 kms though the heart of the South Africa countryside to Cape Town. The South African landscape changes dramatically from vast grasslands and the arid bush of the Karoo to the majestic mountains and vineyards of the Cape region. You travel overnight from Pretoria to Kimberley, where you visit the "Big Hole", the diamond museum and enjoy a tram ride. Breakfast is served the following day in Matjiesfontein at the historic Lord Milner Hotel. Thereafter, you have the option of taking a stroll around this interesting Victorian village. You then proceed on to Cape Town where its landmark, Table Mountain, is immediately evident. Cape Town is an entertaining and lively city, with a tradition of diverse cultures and peoples. We suggest spending several days touring this region. Rovos Rail also offers train journeys to Namibia, Victoria Falls, Kruger/Durban, along the Garden Route and across Southern and East Africa - please enquire.
