Rovos Rail - South Africa

Rovos Rail South Africa

FIRST CLASS LUXURY RAIL TRAVEL


Begin a journey with Rovos Rail to Southern Africa’s most spectacular destinations
Since its establishment in 1989, Rovos Rail has earned an international reputation
for its truly world-class travel experiences. With discreet and friendly service,
five-star cuisine and a selection of South Africa’s finest wines, Rovos Rail harks
back to a simpler, more elegant era encompassing the timeless grace and high
romance of African exploration. In a series of journeys lasting from 48 hours
to 15 days, Rovos Rail links some of the sub-continent’s greatest destinations
from Cape Town at its tip to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, from scenic splendours
as diverse as the game reserves of Mpumalanga to the Victoria Falls, from the
desert landscapes in Namibia and the stark beauty of the Karoo to the lush cane
fields of KwaZulu-Natal and the magnificent Garden Route along the Cape south
coast. The trains – which may be hauled by diesel or electric locomotives – carry a
maximum of 72 passengers in 36 superbly appointed suites and are also available
for charter, while the Events Train caters for up to 250 guests and is suitable for
daytime journeys. Rovos Rail has also established three elegant seaside retreats
in Cape Town that overlook the trendy and vibrant fishing villages of Kalk Bay
and St James. With views across the Indian Ocean, this prestigious little
stretch along the coastline is an ideal location for a stress-free holiday.


THE SUITES

Step aboard Rovos Rail’s classic wood-panelled
coaches that contain the most spacious train suites
in the world offering every modern convenience

The epitome of luxury with handsome wood-panelling and period Edwardian
features, the air-conditioned suites accommodate two people offering the option
of twin or spacious double beds. In the en-suite bathrooms, original fittings
combine with the modern technology of hot showers, hair-dryers and shaver plugs.
Elegant and generous in size, the Royal Suites take up half a carriage measuring
±16 sq metres/±172 sq feet. Each has its own private lounge area and full bathroom
with Victorian bath and separate shower. The Deluxe Suites (±10 sq metres/
±108 sq feet) also accommodate two passengers in either twin or double beds
and have a lounge area and en-suite bathroom with shower. The Pullman Suites
(±7 sq metres/±76 sq feet) are equipped with a comfortable sofa-seat during the
day with a conversion to double or twin beds for the evening and also have an
en-suite bathroom with shower. The distinctly spacious suites offer passengers the
opportunity to travel in privacy, comfort and luxury, with fittings and facilities that
are of the highest standard. All are equipped with a writing surface,
a personal safe for valuables and a bar fridge filled with beverages
of the passengers’ choice with room service available 24 hours a day


LIFE ON BOARD

Recapture the romance and atmosphere of a bygone era
when privileged travellers experienced the magic and
mystery of Africa in a relaxed and elegant fashion

An enthusiastic team of chefs is responsible for overseeing the very important
task of ensuring guests every need is catered for. There’s an accent on fresh local
ingredients and traditional dishes such as game are a specialty. Every morning
there is a full breakfast with dishes cooked to order. Lunch and dinner are
complemented by a selection of the finest South African wines. All meals are served
in one sitting only in the charming Victorian atmosphere of the dining cars. Many
of the passengers aboard enjoy the formality of fine china and glassware, crisp
linen and silver, and dress accordingly. During the day dress is more casual and
cool, comfortable clothes, shoes and hats are recommended for the excursions,
especially in the game reserves where it can get very hot. The Observation Car,
which has a spacious open-air balcony and seats 32 passengers, is positioned
at the rear of the train while at the centre of the train there is, when numbers
dictate, a non-smoking Lounge Car that seats 26 passengers in comfort. A
smoking Club Lounge is placed next to the Observation Car and seats 11.
There is a small, discreet Gift Shop on board and, maintaining the spirit
of travel of a bygone era, there are no radios or television sets on board.
