Overview:

Experience a 3 day long 1600-kilometre voyage through the changing African scenery as the Rovos Rail makes its way westwards through Mafikeng into Botswana and then north towards Mahalapye, cutting the Tropic of Capricorn just after Gaborone. Once the train has passed through the dry reaches of Botswana it arrives at Plumtree in the late afternoon for border formalities with Zimbabwe.

The Victoria Falls and the elegant colonial-style Victoria Falls Hotel are a perfect destination. The surrounding areas offer travelers many opportunities like cruises, adrenaline pumping whitewater rafting on the Zambezi River as well amazing game viewing and photo safaris.
