Slow Train Through Africa 

You may have seen ‘Slow Train Through Africa with Griff Rhys-Jones’ on ITV?  The series featured Namibia, North Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa.  If you are tempted to follow in Griff’s tracks then there are plenty of options to let you achieve your dreams:

The Blue Train
The world famous Blue Train offers elegance and luxury on its regular service between Pretoria and Cape Town as well as on a new route to Hoedspruit where passengers can access the Kruger National Park, offering the possibility of luxury rail combined with world-class safari.

Rovos Rail
Along with The Blue Train, Rovos Rail is one of Africa’s premier luxury rail experiences. Most of their schedule is based in South Africa, with the route between Pretoria and Cape Town being particularly popular, but they also travel to Durban, Victoria Falls, Namibia and Tanzania.
