Rovos Rail has a style of its own with train tours that have a blend of earthy African safari and traditional luxury – except that a divine soak in a full-sized bath in a train was always rare, even on Royal trains!
The Pride of Africa trains from Rovos Rail provide very much more than mere rail transportation – from these transports of delight one can experience the richness of southern Africa, with north and southbound routes between Pretoria and Cape Town as well as a range of spectacular journeys to the east and west.
Trains combine the golden age of rail travel with modern conveniences, creating an unforgettable extravagant elegance of a bygone era.
From the start of your journey (if you leave from Pretoria, you experience the fabulous Edwardian-styled station) to the memorable time spent on the opulent Rovos Pride of Africa, this is an experience not to be missed.
All these luxurious suites are air-conditioned with en-suite facilities, decorated in beautiful wood panelling and period Edwardian features. There are three styles that guests can choose from (Royal, Deluxe, Pullman), with varying levels of luxury.

Each have a writing area and a personal safe along with a mini bar filled with beverages of the passengers’ choice and 24 hour room service. Amenity bags are provided and replenished upon request.
