Goway Launches 2-for-1 Offer for Passengers Touring South Africa by Rail


Combining an elegant rail journey with unique safari adventures, the Shongololo Express is a very different style of South Africa holiday.


Goway is encouraging travellers to explore the wild in style, offering a 2-for-1 deal on its southern Africa rail journeys.

Launched in 1995, The Shongololo Express is one of the most unique ways to experience Africa. Passengers save hours in travel, sleeping comfortably and securely overnight in between the continent’s highlights. Uniquely, the Shongololo carries its own fleet of air-conditioned tour vehicles, with multi-lingual guides offering their expert insight into the sights and wildlife of each region. Passengers can enjoy an African safari through some of the continent’s best loved nature reserves, or uncover its unique cultures, old and new at historic sites such as Great Zimbabwe and Soweto.

Between each stop, passengers can enjoy the charms of the Shongololo, sharing the journey with travellers from around the world. Breakfast and dinner are provided each day, offering passengers a choice of cuisines from Cape Dutch, to traditional African, or even Malay.

To celebrate the Shongololo's 20th anniversary, Goway Travel is offering an exclusive 2-for-1 deal on several of its Shongololo Rail Journeys for 2015. Passengers can choose between two different itineraries eligible for the offer. The Good Hope route is a southbound adventure, touring South Africa at its finest from Johannesburg to Cape Town. It’s an ideal introduction to the sights and wildlife of this complex and colourful country. Alternatively, the Southern Cross weaves through a number of Africa’s most beautiful nations, taking in sights such as Victoria Falls, Great Zimbabwe and Kruger National Park.

Passengers on both itineraries can choose the land excursions that interest them, and enjoy the same level of hospitality and service aboard the Shongololo, regardless of their itinerary.

Departures eligible for this offer start with the Good Hope itinerary, departing on October 7, 2015. The 2-for-1 offer must be booked by July 31, 2015.
