EXPERIENCE a very special touring experience aboard the Shongololo Express as it winds its way between Johannesburg and Cape Town.
The 12-night Good Hope train journey offers an amazing and comprehensive view of South Africa, incorporating virtually every mustsee sight and highlight.
As the train travels the length and breadth of the country, guests can enjoy the great variety of landscapes, shorelines, cultures, lifestyles and cuisine that the South African rainbow nation has to offer.
Just like an ocean cruise, from the moment guests join the train, all their comforts are taken care of from accommodation, meals, recreation and sightseeing and they only need to unpack and pack once.
The trains travel comfortably and securely during the night to the next stop on the itinerary and guests awake each morning to a fresh vista, and new and exciting adventures.
Each train carries a fleet of touring vehicles with professional guides who take guests on inclusive scheduled tours to experience the unique sights of each area. For the more adventurous there are also tour add-ons from hot air ballooning to elephant riding to scuba diving.
Chefs offer South African menus that include Cape Dutch and Malay recipes as well as African dishes, complemented by local wines.
