Why choose this Pride of Africa Luxury Train Journey?
If you've dreamed of riding the most luxurious train the world, this Pride of Africa Luxury Train Journey will make you as proud as the prides of lions you'll see upon the way!
It really is the most deliciously opulent way travel, with absolute comfort combining with the clickety-clack of the African track in such a time-honoured way....
Just imagine - You've packed your suitcase (Edwardian dinner jacket for him, cocktail dress and pearls for her), and you've handed it to the station porter. Now imagine stepping onto a five-star cruise ship on wheels, going back in time to that more genteel, bygone era and speeding through the South African countryside on a trip of a lifetime straight Out of Africa.
Eat, sleep, relax and safari in luxury
You can lazily make your way from Durban to Zambia on an 11-day safari adventure through the KwaZulu-Natal’s Dolphin Coast. From the observation car, South Africa's famous mountains, savannah, grasslands and thornveld will whizz by and you'll safari to see those lions, as well as leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalo before arriving on the shores of the mighty Zambezi River to stay at the colonial-style Victoria Falls Hotel, and visit the Mighty Mosi oa Tunya itself!
The 3-day safari between Pretoria and Durban takes in a Big Five private retreat at Nambiti Conservancy or you could travel from Cape Town to Durban for a 7-day safari in the lap of luxury.
Speaking of which, let's look at that onboard luxury that we were talking about... Measuring 16m², the Royal Suites come with a private lounge area and full bathroom, Victorian bath and separate shower, while bedrooms feature spacious Edwardian double beds. Of course room service is available 24/7.
Not that you'll need it. You'll be wanting to be more traditional, no doubt, and experience the chefs serving breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner (heralded by the sound of a gong!) comprising traditional African dishes and wines (and perhaps a G&T?) in the charming Victorian dining car. Fancy travelling further a-field? Head all the way to Tanzania or Namibia!
