There is an indefinable romance about train journeys, and African rail journeys are no exception. Rovos Rail may not be the most historic train company, having been started by Rohan Vos in 1989 in Pretoria, but it’s nonetheless one of the greats, bringing nostalgic luxury travel to tourists and locals alike. There are five Rovos Rail routes, available in either direction and taking in must-see sights of Southern Africa. They are: Pretoria to Cape Town; Pretoria to Durban; Pretoria to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe; Cape town to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania; and Pretoria to Swakopmund, Namibia. All of them marry adventure travel with gracious comfort. Your only trouble is deciding which to take. (And that conundrum is only going to get harder in 2019, when another Africa train route opens up in July, following the historic copper trail from Dar Es Salaam to Angola via Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.)
