Travellers embarking on one of Africa’s most luxurious train journeys are set to save with Goway.

Celebrating 50 years in travel in 2020, Goway Travel is offering Africa-bound passengers booking a journey on the famed Shongololo Express unbeatable rates on upcoming departures. Passengers are invited to climb aboard for Goway’s 16-day Shongololo Good Hope itinerary, or the 13-day Shongololo Southern Cross, saving up to $1,149 per person.

Inviting guests to sleep in comfort in between their Africa adventures, the Shongololo Express is the ultimate way to explore Southern Africa in style. Passengers take in the best multiple countries have to offer, including some of the world’s finest game viewing, without the need to constantly unpack and repack. Along the way, they enjoy delicious and authentic dishes unique to the region, paired with select South African wines.

With departures in March and November, the Shongololo Good Hope is a 16-day adventure through South Africa, beginning with a full day tour of Pretoria and historic Soweto. It then takes the famous Panorama Route to Kruger National Park and Hluhluwe National Park for game drives, with a visit to Swaziland en route. Stop in Durban where golfers can choose to tee off at the city’s world class golf course, then continue on to the beautiful landscapes of the Cape, finishing with a full day tour of Cape Town, the Mother City. Passengers who book by January 31, 2020 will save US$1,149 on this incredible journey.

The Shongololo Southern Cross begins at one of Africa’s legendary wonders, Victoria Falls. After a tour of the ‘Smoke That Thunders,’ it’s on to Hwange Game Reserve for arguably Zimbabwe’s finest wildlife viewing. Passengers then get to explore the Great Zimbabwe ruins before crossing the border into South Africa. Awaiting them is a morning at Kapama’s Wild Dog and Cheetah Project, followed by days exploring the kingdom of Swaziland and Maputo in Mozambique. A Kruger National Park visit offers more great game viewing before the Shongololo follows the Panorama Route, bound for Pretoria and historic Soweto. Passengers booking with Goway by January 31, 2020 will save US$840 on departures in January, April, and June.

A journey aboard the Shongololo is a coveted experience, with only a few departures throughout the year. Passengers should book early for the ultimate rail journey through the best of Southern Africa in 2020.
