Rovos Rail – Victoria Falls Journey

1’000 miles of unforgettable African scenery from Pretoria to Victoria Falls.” This three-night Rovos Rail itinerary has to be one of the most iconic, as it travels its way through some 1 600 kilometres of Southern African scenery from Pretoria to the town of Victoria Falls. Departing from Pretoria, Rovos Rail winds its way north through Warmbaths and Nylstroom. The train then passes the escarpment and crosses the Tropic of Capricorn en route to the border with Zimbabwe. Crossing into Zimbabwe at Beitbridge the next morning, Rovos Rail continues to the capital of Matabeleland, Bulawayo. The following day sees the train travelling along one of the world’s longest stretches of straight railway line – 114 kilometres – before traversing Hwange National Park, a rich and diverse wildlife sanctuary where animals can be spotted from the train and a game drive excursion is enjoyed. After a service stop at Thompsons Junction, the sojourn ends at the incomparable Victoria Falls on the mighty Zambezi River. The surrounding areas offer travellers many recreational opportunities including cruises, whitewater rafting as well as superb game viewing and photo safaris. Available in reverse. Depending upon railway capacity, this journey could be routed through Botswana.
