This 15-day railway journey turns back time to help you discover contemporary Africa, all in perfect comfort and plenty of luxury. You will start in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania’s most storied city on the Indian Ocean shore. From there, the train chugs you to the outstanding Selous Game Reserve, one of the biggest wildlife areas in the world.
After time on safari, you reboard and head for another safari hotspot; this time, South Luangwa National Park in Zambia.
The final stretch sees you and your fellow passengers pass through southern-most Democratic Republic of Congo and onto Angola, a scenic country still very much off the beaten track that has plenty to offer adventurous travellers. For two weeks, you will enjoy village visits and walking tours, see waterfalls and copper mines, and pass magnificent baobab forests and thriving rivers. Coupled with gourmet meals and fine wines served in a gracious dining car, as well as lectures by experts and time wiled away in an open-air observation car over an iced drink, and you have all the ingredients for an unbelievable 2-week traverse of Africa.
