VICTORIA FALLS ZIMBABWE
A Leisurely Sojourn By Luxury Train via Zimbabwe
This two-night adventure begins as the train departs Rovos Rail’s gracious station at Capital Park in Pretoria. This special journey departs in the morning and slowly meanders north towards Warmbaths, crossing the Tropic of Capricorn just after the station of Soekmekaar. Once over the Soutpansberg mountains, north of Louis Trichardt we enter Baobab country. Few sights are more evocative of primeval Africa than the eerie silhouette of a Baobab tree starkly outlines against a ruddy African sunset. South African border formalities will take place at Messina and then, very slowly over Beit Bridge, the train will ease itself into Zimbabwe. A visit will be made (time permitting) to the interesting Museum of Natural History in Bulawayo. The train will continue in a north-westerly direction passing through Thompson’s Junction and Hwange Game Reserve to journeys end, the incomparable Victoria Falls on the mighty Zambezi River.
