ROVOS RAIL, CAPE TOWN TO VICTORIA FALLS

Robert Louis Stevenson famously said "I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move", and this can never be truer than when traveling on a luxury train. Of course, you can go somewhere interesting too, and you can go in style!

YOUR TRAVEL ITINERARY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Explore the “Mother City” of Cape Town with a myriad of attractions and activities.
  • Enjoy one of the most luxurious trains in the world - Rovos Rail.
  • Experience on the Seven Natural Wonders of the World - Victoria Falls.

YOUR TRAVEL ITINERARY PACKAGE

On arrival into Cape Town International Airport you will be met and transferred to your hotel for your 3-night stay.

Described by Sir Francis Drake in 1580 as ‘the fairest cape in all the world’, the ‘Mother City’ of Cape Town is one of the world’s top tourist destinations. The oldest city in the country, nestled in the shadow of Table Mountain, Cape Town is a vibrant and colourful city.

With plenty to offer the tourist you should never get bored. Table Mountain is the iconic backdrop of Cape Town rising over 1000m above sea level - it can be seen from all over the city. Taking the revolving cable car up to the top is a must or if you’re feeling adventurous there are several hiking routes to the summit.

The Victoria & Alfred (V&A) Waterfront is a prime attraction in the city, a working harbour and tourist attraction offering world class shopping, a huge variety of restaurants, cafes & bars and the Two Oceans Aquarium. The ferry trip to Robben Island, the site of Nelson Mandela’s incarceration for much of his 27 years in prison, leaves from here.

The park-like botanical gardens at Kirstenbosch, Cape Town’s beaches and the city centre with its outdoor street markets, boutique shops & stylish restaurants are all added attractions.
