Africa by Private Train

An epic journey between Cape Town to Dar es Salaam aboard the luxurious Pride of Africa

  • 26 September 2019
  • Wildlife Tours/ Natural World
  • Table Mountain, Cape Town

Join us aboard the Pride of Africa, regarded by many as the most luxurious train in the world, for a journey through South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Tanzania, one of the great train journeys of the world.

In spite of all its regional difficulties, Africa still captures theimagination like no other continent and its varied cultures, extraordinary wildlife and perhaps most of all, the majesty of its landscape cast a lifelong spell on all who visit. From Cape Town we will travel the length of South Africa visiting the diamond town of Kimberley, the nation’s capital of Pretoria and stay two nights in a private lodge in Madikwe Game Reserve. Cross the border to the magnificent Victoria Falls and then across the mighty Zambezi River, travelling north to Zambia where we join the Tazara Railway line. We will climb towards the Zambian and Tanzanian border, almost the midpoint between Africa’s two Great Rift Valley lakes. Descend into the Rift Valley travelling through stunning scenery as the train negotiates the tunnels, switchbacks and viaducts of the escarpment. Time permitting we will visit the Selous Game Reserve, the largest on the continent and the very vision of ‘Timeless Africa’. Finally we reach the bustling city of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania.

  • Our View

    Alexia Williams, our product manager, recently experienced the Pride of Africa and below are her thoughts on the train.

    “The opulent Pride of Africa is billed for good reason as the “The Most Luxurious Train in the World”. The excellent service is evident the minute you arrive at the station. Luggage is whisked off and tagged and boarding is seamlessly done by compartment, luggage arrives and a welcome tour of your suite is conducted by your attendant. Suites are wood panelled and comfortable with all amenities you would expect in a 5 star hotel. Soon it is lunch time. In keeping with the ‘bygone era’ theme a gong is sounded for all meals, no tannoy announcements here! Lunch and dinner are both four course fixed menus. The menus are given on arrival, if you can’t eat anything or simply don’t like something they are incredibly accommodating. All dishes are wine matched but if you would like to make your own wine selection, again this is fine. All in all, from spending time onboard this exquisite train, I can understand why she has such a strong following and reputation.”

All are equipped with a writing surface and, for valuables, a personal safe. There is also a bar fridge filled with beverages of the passengers’ choice and room service is available 24 hours a day.

Our View

Alexia Williams, our product manager, recently experienced the Pride of Africa and below are her thoughts on the train.

“The opulent Pride of Africa is billed for good reason as the “The Most Luxurious Train in the World”. The excellent service is evident the minute you arrive at the station. Luggage is whisked off and tagged and boarding is seamlessly done by compartment, luggage arrives and a welcome tour of your suite is conducted by your attendant. Suites are wood panelled and comfortable with all amenities you would expect in a 5 star hotel. Soon it is lunch time. In keeping with the ‘bygone era’ theme a gong is sounded for all meals, no tannoy announcements here! Lunch and dinner are both four course fixed menus. The menus are given on arrival, if you can’t eat anything or simply don’t like something they are incredibly accommodating. All dishes are wine matched but if you would like to make your own wine selection, again this is fine. All in all, from spending time onboard this exquisite train, I can understand why she has such a strong following and reputation.”
