This three-day luxury train journey is a testament to South Africa being known as a world in one country. This 1600km (994miles) tour winds its way through the diverse South African landscape: through grasslands of the Highveld to the more arid Great Karoo and ends in the Mother City, Cape Town.
Highlights of this trip include the ambience of old-world style travelling – elegant and graceful – with stops in Matjiesfontein and Kimberley. Matjiesfontein is a perfectly preserved Victorian village that was founded as a refreshment stop in 1890 and has an impressive museum. Another stop is made in Kimberley, with a visit to the Diamond Mine Museum and the world’s largest man-made excavation, the Big Hole.
