Great Train Journeys in Southern Africa

  • Rovos Rail and Victoria Falls
  • Blue Train and Table Mountain at sunset

Goway offers three distinct special train companies in Southern Africa. The majority of the journeys cover South Africa but they also extend to East Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Namibia. For those travellers who do not have a lot of time to spare, the Blue Train which travels overnight between Pretoria and Johannesburg is an excellent choice - an all-inclusive luxury rail cruise of South Africa's spectacular landscapes while visiting interesting tourist attractions along the way.

Rovos Rail is a truly world-class company offering luxury train journeys in wood-panelled in mint condition. Journeys last from 24 hours to 2 weeks on the “Pride of Africa” which link Cape Town to Dar-Es-Salaam in Tanzania, scenic splendours as diverse as the game reserves of KrugerPark to Victoria Falls, the desert landscapes of Namibia and the stark beauty of the Karoo to the magnificent Garden Route along the CapeSouthCoast.

Shongololo Express offers inclusive first-class rail journeys around South Africa and Namibia. Accommodation, meals and sightseeing are all included and you only need to unpack and pack once. The trains travel comfortably and securely during the night to the next stop on the itinerary and you awake each morning to a fresh vista of Africa and the anticipation of a new and exciting day.
