The Pride of Africa

The Pride of Africa is a luxury train which is run by Rovos Rail. It is billed as the World's Most Luxurious Train. It travels through South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Tanzania. Rovos Rail was established in 1989.

When travelling in South Africa, there is a splendid alternative to travel by plane or by car, which will allow you to experience the splendor of a bygone era while being pampered for 48 hours. Rovos Rail has raised the bar of excellence in luxury railway travel, not least due to the continued passion and dedication of owner and founder Rohan Vos.

We journeyed from Pretoria to Cape Town on The Pride of Africa. With the champagne flowing and a small band playing classical music in a stylish lounge, it is as if we have walked into another century. It is hard to believe that we are indeed on a train station - but then again, this is by no means your ordinary train station. We are at Central Park, Pretoria at the private station of Rovos Rail, the most luxurious train in the world.

El "orgullo de Africa", The Pride of Africa. Bello nombre para un tren, sin duda, símbolo de un continente y de un sentimiento y que permite apreciar las muchas maravillas de una África salvaje y distinta. ¿Os imagináis ver desde la ventanilla del tren la contundencia de las Cataratas Victoria, que quedan a escasa distancia de donde pasa el tren? ¿o participar en una excursión a una mina de diamantes? ¿o conocer Ciudad del Cabo y otras tantas ciudades del Sur de África? todo eso y más es lo que nos ofrece The Pride of Africa, un tren que tiene varios recorridos, áunque el más conocido es el que recorre en 72 horas desde Pretoria a Ciudad del Cabo. The Pride of Africa es un tren de época que puede llevar locomotoras tanto a vapor como eléctricas. Los vagones datan del año 1911 muchos de ellos, y otros son de los años 20, y aunque todos han sido arreglados siguen manteniendo aquel encanto de principios de siglo XX, con maderas a la vista por todos lado y ese clásico estilo victoriano.
