Recapture the romance and atmosphere of a bygone era on this 10-day journey. Start in Johannesburg, which began as a 19th century gold-mining settlement and that has now developed into Africa’s economic and financial powerhouse. Get a glimpse into the struggle that ended the apartheid segregation policy and Nelson Mandela’s journey to president. From here, step aboard the reconditioned wood-panelled coaches of the magnificent Rovos Rail train and enjoy fine cuisine in five-star luxury.
The 1 600 km meander takes you through the grasslands of the gold-rich Highveld to the haunting barrenness of the Great Karoo; then trundles through the spectacular mountain ranges and scenic winelands of the Cape, before arriving in the Mother City, Cape Town. Take time to discover the unique magic and culture that this city has to offer from the elegant comforts of your exclusive accommodation. A short flight then takes you on to a tranquil and luxurious tropical haven in Mauritius, spread out along a pure white sandy beach. Throughout, excellence is never compromised and you can expect perfection from the start of your vacation all the way to its end.
