The Shongololo Express, based at Rovos Rail Station in Pretoria, began operations in 1995 to provide a very special touring experience for visitors to Southern Africa. The three journeys, of between 12 to 15 days, offer tours that traverse South Africa, Namibia, Swaziland, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe with a variety of off-train excursions. 72 guests are accommodated in two categories of comfortable en-suite cabins with double or twin beds while the vintage carriages hark back to a simpler, more elegant era encompassing the high romance of African exploration.
Recapture the romance of a bygone era when travelers experienced the magic and mystery of Africa in a relaxed and elegant fashion. The classic wood-paneled coaches are the epitome of comfort with period features combining with modern technology. The service is discreet and friendly with an enthusiastic team of chefs ensuring guests’ every need is catered for. There is an accent on fresh local ingredients and traditional dishes are a specialty. Every morning there is a full breakfast with dishes cooked to order. Meals are served in one sitting only and are complemented by fine South African wines. The dress on board the train is casual.
