Rovos Rail Victoria Falls Journey
Experience the magnificent 1 600-kilometre Victoria Falls Journey with Rovos Rail through diverse and truly African scenery as this luxury train meanders westwards through Mafikeng into Botswana and then north towards Mahalapye, crossing the Tropic of Capricorn just after Gaborone. Once the Rovos Rail train has passed through the dry reaches of Botswana it arrives at Plumtree in the late afternoon for border formalities with Zimbabwe. Continuing in a northwesterly direction, the train passes Bulawayo heading towards Thompson’s Junction and Hwange Game Reserve where animals can be spotted from the train.
The Victoria Falls and the elegant colonial-style Victoria Falls Hotel are an ideal destination for an unforgettable holiday. The surrounding areas provide travellers with many recreational opportunities including cruises, whitewater rafting on the Zambezi River as well as superb game viewing and photo safaris.
