Since its establishment 30 years ago, Rovos Rail has earned an international reputation for its truly world-class travel experiences, recreating the romance of the golden age of luxury train travel. Their trains feature beautiful wood-panelled heritage coaches, which have been carefully rebuilt and are drawn by steam, diesel and electric locomotives. The carriages have been collected from all over South Africa; a few of the carriages date back to 1911. Top-class craftsmanship has ensured an atmosphere of elegance and grandeur with the use of traditional furnishings and period decor.
The spacious Royal, Deluxe and Pullman suites combine the opulence of a bygone era with subtle modern innovations. Each train has one or two lounge cars, the perfect place to enjoy a leisurely drink. Watch the passing scenery from the observation car with its open balcony and dine on exquisite South African cuisine in the historic dining cars. In the spirit of travel of a bygone era, there are no radios or televisions on board and the use of mobile phones and laptops is confined to the privacy of suites only. Smoking is allowed in your suite and in the smoking Club Lounge.
