Welcome aboard the African Pride!
With Rovos Rail you travel in style and luxury and the romantic atmosphere of traveling in the distant past comes up again. The time in which privileged travelers explored the continent of Africa in a very elegant way. Add to that the play on six beautiful golf courses and your choice is determined, this is your dream trip!
Rovos Rail has two classic 20-compartment trains, called the ‘Prides of Africa’, each of which seats 72 passengers. There is also a third Edwardian train, which can accommodate 42 passengers and can be used throughout the year as a special charter.
The excellent Dining Coupés are the showpiece of Rovos Rail. Every Dining coupé has its own proud history and has been renovated in detail. Dining Coupé No 195 Shangani, for example, was found in 1986 on the side of an alternating track in Alberton near Johannesburg.
Each train has two 42-person Dining Coupes, where a total of 72 people can comfortably sit. At the end of the trains there is a smoke-free Observation Coupé, with a small smoking lounge attached to it. Special details in the Observation Coupé are the enlarged windows and the open-air balconies. Here you can enjoy the fantastic view of the landscape through which you travel.
The renovated coupes are spacious and offer all necessary conveniences and comfort. The luxury two-person suites have beautiful wooden panels and details dating from the Edwardian period of 1900 and are air-conditioned.
The Deluxe Suites (+/- 11 square meters) is also a double suite with twin beds or double bed, living room, bathroom with shower.
The price on our website is based on a stay in the Pullman Suite. At an additional cost you can also stay in a Deluxe Suite or a Royal Suite. Ask us about the possibilities.
An authentic team of chefs is responsible for the important task of creating and planning the menus that will meet all your expectations. The emphasis is on fresh local ingredients, and traditional dishes such as game are the specialty.
The dishes are complimented by an excellent selection of South African wines. All meals are served during one joint session in the charming Victorian atmosphere of the Dining Cars.
