Victoria Falls Journey

This three-night 1 600-kilometre adventure begins with the train's departure from Rovos Rail's gracious station in Capital Park, Pretoria. It then winds its way south through Johannesburg and the goldfields of the Witwatersrand before travelling west alongside the Magaliesberg Mountains and across the Bushveld Igneous Complex - one of the richest areas for valuable minerals.

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. Botswana largely consists the Kalahari semi-desert with the majority of the population living along the north-south railway line where there is plentiful evidence of cattle ranching.

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, time permitting. After a service stop at Thompsons Junction, the sojourn ends at the incomparable Victoria Falls on the mighty Zambezi River. The surrounding area offers travellers many recreational opportunities including cruises, whitewater rafting as well as superb game viewing and photo safaris.
