Frontiers Elegant Journeys International Travel is now offering the trip of a lifetime, and the experience of a bygone era with their 15-day train journey between Cape Town and Dar es Salaam (or vice versa) aboard “The Pride of Africa,” the most luxurious train in the world operated by Rovos Rail.
Recapture the romance of last century by alighting the first class, old-world wood-paneled coaches of The Pride of Africa that will become your luxe home away from home for two weeks. Relish daily fine dining and 5-star cuisine as you journey across five African countries: South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Tanzania.
Your sojourn begins in beautiful and world-famous Cape Town, often voted one of the best and most scenic cities in the world. Explore the historic village of Matjiesfontein, the diamond town of Kimberley, and the capital city of Pretoria, followed by two nights spent in the luxury glamping destination of Madikwe Game Reserve.
Continue through Botswana into Zimbabwe and stay overnight at the luxury 5-star Victoria Falls Hotel. After crossing the mighty Zambezi River, the train joins the Tazara line in Zambia and continues to Chisimba Falls for a bush walk. Next, the train climbs to the Tanzanian border and descends into the Great Rift Valley navigating the tunnels, switchbacks and viaducts of the spectacular escarpment. It then traverses the Selous Game Reserve – the largest reserve on the African continent– before arriving in the exciting and bustling city of Dar es Salaam.
