About the tour
Perhaps the wildest country remaining in the modern world, Africa is the destination for this incredible journey. The tour takes us through South Africa, where wild game preserves, national parks, and grand cities can be found hand-in-hand. Arrive in Johannesburg and transfer to nearby Pretoria, where we board Africa's premier luxury train, the Pride of Africa, for a 9-night excursion along the southern coastline to Cape Town. Along the way, enjoy stops in Kruger National Park, Hluhluwe Game Reserve, Spionkop Battlefields, Addo Elephant Park and Featherbed Nature Reserve. From seeing Africa's Big Five to riding through the scenic Cape Fold Mountains while being wined and dined in pure luxury, the time on this train is truly memorable. As we arrive in Cape Town, the lavish experience continues. We sip wine in the Franschhoek and Stellenbosch valleys, ride a cable car up Table Mountain, ferry to Robben Island and even embark on one more scenic rail adventure aboard the Flying Dutchman Funicular Railway. A South African adventure with a cosmopolitan flair, this 15-day journey cannot be beat.
