Rovos Rail to Namibia – travel in style on the iconic luxury train, Rovos Rail either to or from Namibia to Pretoria, South Africa. This journey takes the train from the savannahs of the Highveld to the Atlantic in the west.
Departing from Pretoria, the first stop is Kimberley, the centre of one of the world’s famous diamond rushes; where there is an opportunity to savour the 1870s atmosphere of the mining village. The train traverses the stark vistas of the Northern Cape to the Fish River Canyon; second in size to the Grand Canyon; and Garas Park with its quiver-tree forest.
Guests continue across the untamed beauty of the Kalahari Desert to a cheetah conservation project and a stop in 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, a stunning pan in the Namib Desert, for an overnight stay followed by a night in the game-rich Etosha National Park. On the last morning, the train travels the Namib to the perfectly preserved 19th-century German Hansa town of Swakopmund and Walvis Bay; an unforgettable end to a remarkable journey.
