Private Events - The Rovos Events Train - Private Events on the Rovos Rail
The proudly launched Events Train can accommodate
up to 250 guests and is an ideal venue for weddings,
conferences and product launches
Limited only by time and distance, there are many alternative uses for the
Events Train, which include a three-hour circular trip around Pretoria or a oneway
journey to any destination within eight hours’ rail travel time from Pretoria.
The Rovos Events Train is only suitable for daytime journeys and depending on the
number of guests, the Events Train can host – with full-bar facilities – a four-course
sit-down dinner for up to 120 guests, a three-course sit-down meal for up to 240 guests
in two sittings or, for 250 guests, hot snacks, canapés and cocktails served for the
duration of the journey.
Dinner runs are very popular and are normally fine dining, dressy affairs. Guests are
greeted at our private station by a Champagne reception. Musicians play light classical
music in the background while one of our steam engines gently hisses on the platform.
We allow plenty of time for introductions and photographs before sending the locomotive
away to collect the coaches, an ideal time for announcements, speeches and presentations.
The train then departs for a circular tour around Pretoria. Drinks are served in the observation
and lounge cars then dinner is presented in the opulent dining cars before returning to the station
