Rovos Rail Ensures Luxury Train an Event Everyone Would Love to Experience

By Tracy Narvaez Subscribe to RSS | March 1st 2012 | Views:

The owner of this World Class luxury train has a train set that surpasses that of anyone in the world. His trains are refurbished vintage locomotives and coaches that embrace their old fashioned style of a bygone era with added embellishments that include the latest mod cons to ensure passengers have the ultimate luxury train travel experience.

Its company colors and unique emblem have become a well known sight on the railroads in South Africa from Cape Town to Tanzania's Dar es Salaam. Anyone wishing to experience a modern day African safari in ultra style and comfort may wish to book a compartment. The train leaves from its private station near Pretoria, South Africa to major cities within its borders and further afield to countries such as Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Famous battle sites, man-made wonders, Mother Nature in all her splendor and World Heritage Sites are all listed in their itineraries. World renowned game parks where people can view Africa's Big 5 in their natural surroundings and natural splendors such as Vic Falls give tourists an all encompassing appreciation for this continent and its wonders.

The business is a family concern and great pride is set on service excellence. Decommissioned rolling stock that had been left to rust away were rescued, restored and refurbished to their former grandeur. The family's pride in their trains is reflected in the fact that their children's names have been given to the various locomotives that power these trains. Modernization of railroads led to steam becoming a rarity but for Rovos rail it is a tradition for their trains to depart from and arrive at their private station Capital Park under steam.

Accommodation on board is luxurious and passengers have three options. Each train carries only four Royal Suites which are the ultimate in opulence, style and comfort. Comprising 172 square feet they boast a private lounge, separate bedroom and an en suite bathroom fitted with a Victorian bath and shower.

The 22 DeLuxe Suites are decorated in colonial period style and offer either a king-sized or twin beds. The 118 square feet accommodates a bedroom, en suite with shower and a lounge area. The 76 square feet 15 Pullman compartments offer sofas that convert into either twin or double beds in the evening with en suite bathrooms.

Communal coaches include 2 dining cars per train, lounges and one observation coach bringing up the rear. The observation coach has enlarged windows to allow for greater panoramic views of passing countryside and also has an outdoor platform. Old world grace and charm are the keywords for the dining cars with their wood panels, soft candle light dinners and exquisite local and international cuisine served with South African wines.

They are four time recipients of one of the most prestigious luxury train awards and this company has taken their train travel into a new dimension. Their most ambitious journey is however the Cape to Cairo event which has taken place biannually for a number of years. The next tour is scheduled for the beginning of 2014. All forms of transport are incorporated in this month long African safari experience.
