Guests will recapture the romance of a bygone era by stepping aboard the wood-paneled coaches and enjoying fine cuisine in five-star luxury as they travel across five countries: South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Tanzania. The Cape Town to Dar es Salaam trip is slated for July 1-15, 2017 and Dar es Salaam to Cape Town is July 18-August 1, 2017. Deluxe Suites start at $16,500 per person based on double occupancy.

The sojourn begins in Cape Town taking guests to the historic village of Matjiesfontein, the diamond town of Kimberley, and the capital city of Pretoria, followed by two nights in the Madikwe Game Reserve. Guests will continue through Botswana into Zimbabwe where they’ll overnight at the Victoria Falls Hotel. After crossing the mighty Zambezi River, the train joins the Tazara line in Zambia and continues to Chisimba Falls for a bush walk. Next, the train will climb to the Tanzanian border and descend into the Great Rift Valley negotiating the tunnels, switchbacks and viaducts of the spectacular escarpment. Climbing again, it will traverse the Selous Game Reserve – the largest reserve on the continent– before the bustling arrival in Dar es Salaam.
