30 Years of Lifetime Experiences on a Train

Since its first overnight journey with a seven-coach train to what was then the Eastern Transvaal, Rovos Rail – now in its 30th year – has expanded exponentially and it offers eight trips around Eastern Africa.

Journeys range from 48 hours to 15 days. The newest route, ‘Trail of Two Oceans’, departed for its maiden voyage in July from Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) to Lobito (Angola) – the first time a passenger train has traveled the copper trail East to West.

Also in the fleet is the Shongololo Express, purchased and renovated in 2016. Three journeys are on offer, ranging from 12 to 15 days.

A sixth train is in production, with completion aimed for December 2019.

This means the company will be able to have five Rovos Rail trains out at once on any of the eight journeys it offers, along with Shongololo Express running on one of its three trips.
