Goway Offers Savings on the Shongololo Express


Goway is offering discounts and complimentary nights' accommodation on one of its most popular train journeys.


Goway Travel is offering a 10% discount on its 15 day Shongololo Good Hope train journey, plus 2 complimentary nights hotel accommodation.

Priced from 5680USD/7071CAD per person in a gold cabin, the trip is a comprehensive tour of South Africa which includes all of the great sights such as Cape Town, the spectacular Garden Route, Zululand, Swaziland, the Drakensberg Mountains, and Kruger National Park. A complimentary pre-night in Cape Town, as well as a post-night in Pretoria, is included in the special.

“The Shongololo Express already offers excellent value for money considering it includes accommodation, transportation, sightseeing and two meals a day,” said Kirsty Perring, Acting General Manager AFRICAExperts. “It’s like cruising Africa, by rail!”

The Shongololo Express is a unique train safari, and one of the most convenient ways of seeing Southern Africa. It travels between destinations at night, allowing for exploration during the day. The recently refurbished train has 2 cabin categories, Gold and Emerald, both with en-suite. Breakfast and dinner are prepared on board and served daily in the restaurant, with lunches at guests’ own expense. Off-rail excursions take place every day and a great variety of sights, scenery and activities are on the schedule. Depending on the package taken, some of these off-rail activities are included in the price while others can be purchased optionally while on tour. The Good Hope journey offers both a golfing and non-golfing itinerary at the same time. Golfers get to play at some of the best courses in Southern Africa, while others can enjoy a range of activities more suited to their interests.

A train safari is the most convenient, economic and comfortable way of seeing Southern Africa. Passengers can unpack upon boarding and only pack again at the end of their tour. Good food, good service, and good company are all part of this traveling ‘hotel.’ The same excellent service and great atmosphere continues on every Shongololo journey.
