This nine-day Rovos Rail journey takes the train from the savannahs of the Highveld to the Atlantic in the west. Firstly, departing from Pretoria, the first stop is Kimberley, the centre of one of the world’s famous diamond rushes. The train traverses the stark vistas of the Northern Cape to the Fish River Canyon and Garas Park with its Quiver Tree Forest. Guests continue across the untamed beauty of the Kalahari Desert to Namibia’s capital for a tour; Windhoek is a lively, cosmopolitan city with a strong German flavour. Then it’s a short flight to Sossusvlei, for an overnight stay followed by a night in Etosha National Park. Lastly, the train travels to the town of Swakopmund and Walvis Bay – an unforgettable end to a remarkable journey.
