Southern Sky Adventures: Train Journeys

Train enthusiasts will find the offerings in Africa to be something not to be missed. Nothing quite evokes the thoughts of travel through Africa as the idea of riding on a train. Within southern Africa, there are a few choices of well appointed train services which can transport you in great comfort through multiple countries. Rovos Rail offers two beautifully rebuilt classic trains each carrying a maximum of 72 passengers who are accommodated in the most spacious and luxurious train suites in the world. Journeys can take you through much of southern and East Africa as well as an annual trip offered from Cape Town, South Africa to Cairo, Egypt.
