The Rovos Rail never ceases to impress with its fine service, luxury accommodation, and quintessentially African rail routes. Step aboard one of the restored classic wood-panelled coaches and enjoy the most luxurious journey through Africa you’ll ever experience.

Established in 1989, the Rovos Rail company has a well-deserved reputation as a provider of the finest luxury train journeys in the Southern Hemisphere. The coaches have all been remodelled and refurbished to pristine condition. Covering some of Africa’s greatest destinations such as Victoria Falls, Cape Town, Namibia, and Dar es Salaam, the Rovos Rail experience is the finest way to travel Southern and East Africa.

The Rovos Rail company operates two restored classic trains each with 20 renovated original coaches - some dating back well before 1920s! From the air-conditioned Deluxe Suites, the ultra-luxurious Royal Suites (which each take up half a carriage) to the standard sleeper coaches, all the accommodation is more spacious and tasteful than any other train in the world.
