the jour­ney It doesn’t get more epic than this 15-day ex­pe­di­tion from Cape Town to dar es salaam on the ‘Pride of africa’. The trip spans 1 600km, snaking through un­spoiled sub-sa­ha­ran ter­rain from south africa to Botswana, Zim­babwe, Zam­bia and Tan­za­nia.

the at­trac­tion There’s a very ob­vi­ous rea­son why this is re­garded as one of the world’s pre­em­i­nent lo­co­mo­tive ex­pe­di­tions. The lux­u­ri­ous length of the trip means that there are var­ied sights to take in along the way. From a so­journ at the his­toric rail­way town of Matjies­fontein and a tour of the di­a­mond mine in Kim­ber­ley to a twonight stay at the Madikwe game re­serve (in­clud­ing game drives and bush walks). high­lights beyond our bor­ders in­clude a sun­set cruise on the Zam­bezi river and see­ing Vic­to­ria Falls in all its splen­dour. on board It’s old­school lux­ury at its ab­so­lute finest. Meals are served in the beau­ti­fully re­stored Vic­to­rian din­ing car, with a for­mal din­ner ev­ery evening – evok­ing the glam­our of a by­gone era. 8 rovos.com
