"We have been lucky enough to travel twice on Rovos Rail and each experience was simply wonderful. It is like stepping back in time as you board the stunningly restored carriages but with all of the comforts and service you would expect from five star accommodation.
It was a rare opportunity to enjoy the wonderful customs of bygone eras such as afternoon tea and eating lunch and dinner in the beautiful dining car. The food was delicious and and all washed down by plentiful wine and cocktails!
The staff were delightful and nothing was too much trouble. They seemed to anticipate our every need.
It would be hard to imagine a more relaxing way to spend a couple of days - the gentle roll of the carriages induces immediate calm and there are lots of lovely places on board to hide away with your book or simply sit back and enjoy the wonders of the South African countryside from the observation car.
We are looking forward to our next trip"
