Recapture the romance of a bygone era as you step aboard the reconditioned wood-panelled coaches and enjoy fine cuisine in five-star luxury. The Pride of Africa trains from Rovos Rail are a wonderful ‘vehicle’ within which 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 to the west.
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, and all offer every modern convenience and comfort, with fittings and facilities of the highest standard and are equipped with a writing area and a personal safe for valuables. There is also a mini bar filled with beverages of the passengers’ choice and 24 hour room service.
The four Royal Suites each have their own private lounge area and feature a full en-suite bathroom with shower and Victorian bath.
The Deluxe Suites each have a lounge area and en-suite bathroom with shower.
The Pullman Suites are equipped with a comfortable sofa-seat during the day, converting to double or twin beds for the evening, and also have an en-suite bathroom with shower.
Dining Cars The beautiful dining cars provide a wonderful range of food that includes local delicacies such as game with an emphasis placed on fresh and seasonal ingredients, complemented of course by excellent South Africa wines. The ambiance created by a Victorian setting, with crisp linen, sparkling glass and silver, and seamless service, charms the diners. Lounge and Observation Cars Sitting in the opulence of the lounge cars allows the opportunity to relax and watch the spectacular scenery, whilst the rear of the Observation car affords one the amazing experience of being outside whilst the train is moving.
