Cape Town to Victoria Falls Journey Combination

This seven-day journey commences in Cape Town and ends at the majestic Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.
Travel through the spectacular mountain ranges and scenic winelands of the Cape to the haunting 
barrenness of the Great Karoo. Visit the historic village of Matjiesfontein. Next stop is Kimberley for a
city tour and a visit to the world’s largest man-made excavation, the Big Hole, and its Diamond Mine
Museum. Arrive in Pretoria for an introduction to our beautifully appointed station. Join in an optional
tour of the city or have the afternoon at leisure before spending the night at your hotel. The next day the
train slowly winds its way south through the goldfields of the Witwatersrand before travelling west alongside the Magaliesberg Mountains. After border formalities at Mafikeng, the train travels north the following day
through Botswana’s capital, Gaborone, crosses the Tropic of Capricorn and continues via Francistown to the Zimbabwean border at Plumtree. The next day the train passes through Hwange National Park – a rich and
diverse wildlife sanctuary where animals can be spotted from the train and a game drive excursion is enjoyed.
After a service stop at Thompsons Junction, the sojourn ends at the incomparable Victoria Falls on the mighty Zambezi River. The surrounding areas offer travellers many recreational opportunities including cruises,
whitewater rafting as well as superb game viewing and photo safaris.
