Trains depart regularly from Rovos Rail Station in Pretoria for Cape Town, Durban and Victoria Falls. Longer journey destinations include Walvis Bay (Namibia), Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) and Lobito (Angola).
During the height of wingshooting season, Rovos Rail operates a unique eight-day sojourn with variety of shoots ranging from driven guinea fowl to challenging waterfowl and hot-barreled, flighted rock pigeon and dove. Each day of shooting is paired with a leisure itinerary for those who prefer to further explore the local history, culture and photographic wildlife.
Day’s end is celebrated with dramatic sunsets viewed from the open-air balcony as the train trundles further across the wild African landscapes.
