You are only moments away

TThere's something so peaceful, adventurous and yet cosseting about luxury train travel in South Africa, and the Shongololo Express is no exception.

Based at Rovos Rail’s station in Pretoria, the Shongololo Express began operations in 1995 by providing a very special touring experience for visitors to Southern Africa. The four journeys, of between 12 to 15 days, offer tours that traverse South Africa, Namibia, Swaziland, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.
