Simone's Luxury Train Journey Through Bygone Era Africa

Curated by: Simone Solomons

What to expect

Imagine the gentle motion of a grand train, the soft clinking of crystal in the dining cart and untold luxury against the backdrop of an ever-changing landscape. Simone's tour whisks guests away on the Rovos Rail, which leaves South Africa's city of gold, Johannesburg, and sets its sights on Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. Exchange winding hills and valleys for watery tendrils and tributaries when you end off your journey with three nights in the Okavango Delta.
