Namibia Safari

This nine-day 3 400-kilometre journey reunites by rail the republics of South Africa
and Namibia. The train departs from Pretoria for Kimberley, centre of one of the
world’s most famous diamond rushes where guests visit the Big Hole and savour
the 1870s atmosphere of the mine museum village. Then it’s on to Upington for
a walking tour, the principal town of the Northern Province bound by the Orange
River and the Kalahari Desert. The railway line then covers the stark vistas of the arid
Northern Cape into Namibia where there is an excursion to the spectacular Fish
River Canyon – second in size to the Grand Canyon and a truly spectacular sight.
A short visit to Keetmanshoop – a small but important sheep-farming town – offers
another opportunity for a walking tour. The train crosses the Kalahari to Windhoek,
a lively, cosmopolitan capital city with a strong German flavour. A highlight is the 24-
hour excursion to the world-famous Sossusvlei, a stunning pan in the Namib Desert
surrounded by massive, red sand dunes. Guests rejoin the train and continue to
the Etosha National Park for a stay at Mokuti on the eastern edge of the game-rich
park. The journey then continues on to Swakopmund, a perfectly preserved
19th-century German Hansa town set between the dunes of the Namib and
the roaring Atlantic Ocean – an unforgettable end to a remarkable journey
