Rovos Rail comprises lovingly restored Classic trains, embellished with traditional furnishings and period décor. The rebuilt sleeper coaches on the Rovos Rail locomotives are the most spacious train suites in the world.

Each one not only has its own private lounge area with writing desk, but also a full en-suite bathroom with a shower and Victorian bath. The Rovos Rail Observation Car is positioned at the rear of the train with enlarged windows and open-air balconies from which you can view the panoramic landscape as it rolls lazily by. Meals are served in the elegant dining carriage and are complemented by a selection of fine wines from some of South Africa's most renowned cellars and estates. Evening wear is encouraged and fine china, crisp linen and silver service can be enjoyed throughout your stay.
