Rovos Rail from Pretoria to Victoria Falls or Victoria Falls to Pretoria

You can journey back in time through parts of Southern Africa on the most luxurious train in the world and complete your rail travel experience with a visit to the amazing Victoria Falls.

This adventure begins with the train’s departure from Rovos Rail’s gracious station in Pretoria. It then winds its way south through Johannesburg and the goldfields of the Witwatersrand before travelling west alongside the Magaliesberg Mountains.

After border formalities at Mafikeng, the train travels north through Botswana’s capital, Gaborone, crosses the Tropic of Capricorn and continues to the Zimbabwean border at Plumtree.

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.

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

Available in reverse. Please note that depending upon railway capacity this journey could be routed northwards through Beitbridge and Zimbabwe.
