Your tailor-made holiday to Namibia & South Africa

Step back in time to a bygone era and journey through Namibia on the Rovos Rail, a luxury train offering excellent service, gourmet cuisine and lavish suites.

The train journey takes you from the savannahs of South Africa's Highveld to the Atlantic in the west. Departing from Pretoria, the first stop is Kimberley, center of one of the world's famous South African diamond rushes where there is an opportunity to savor the 1870s atmosphere of the mining village. The train traverses the stark vistas of the Northern Cape to the Fish River Canyon - second in size to the Grand Canyon - and Garas Park with its quiver-tree forest. Continue then across the untamed beauty of the Kalahari Desert to a cheetah conservation project and a stop in Namibia's capital for a tour; Windhoek is a lively, cosmopolitan city with a strong German flavor. Then it's a short flight to Sossusvlei, a stunning pan in the Namib Desert, for an overnight stay followed by a night in the game-rich Etosha National Park. On the last morning, the train travels the Namib to the perfectly preserved 19th-century German Hansa town of Swakopmund and Walvis Bay - an unforgettable end to a remarkable journey.
