The luxurious Shongololo train runs between Pretoria and Swakopmund. From the vast savannah of South Africa to the rugged coast of the Atlantic, the train stops at carefully selected locations. The canyon, cities, deserts and wildlife will surprise you with their beauty along the way. Bed, breakfast, dinner and carefully selected activities are included. You spend 1 night at Etosha N.P. and 1 night in the Namib-Naukluft Park.
A trip with the Shongololo Express is still seen as a unique experience. The well-trained train staff and the guides who speak several languages will ensure that you will not miss anything during this trip.
These train journeys are a luxury way to get to know a country. In this case you even get to know two countries: South Africa and Namibia! Countries with unparalleled beauty, wide views and beautiful sunsets. The silence in the desert landscape and African wildlife will make this trip very special. The crew and guides will ensure that every day is special, no matter in which country you are, inside or outside the train.
The journey starts with a warm welcome and then continues silently into an unforgettable holiday. You will spend a night at a lodge in Sossusvlei and a night at Etosha National Park. This way you can quietly enjoy these special places without having to drive unnecessary kilometers to and from the train.
The excursions mentioned in the itinerary are carried out with an air-conditioned bus (you) and are included in the price. Train stays are based on bed, breakfast and dinner. Lunches on board the train are included where mentioned in the itinerary.
