Luxury Accommodation

Rovos Rail offers accommodation of an unmatched standard combining the opulence of pre-war travel with subtle modern innovations. Each of the individually air-conditioned suites accommodates two people offering the option of twin or double beds. The Royal Suites (16m2) each have their own private lounge area and feature a full en-suite bathroom with shower and Victorian bath. The Deluxe Suites (11m2) each have a lounge area and private en suite bathroom with shower. The Pullman Suites (7m²) have a room with bench seat during the day which converts to double or twin beds for the evening. They also have an en suite bathroom with shower. All the bathrooms have a hairdryer and shaver point.

Superb Cuisine and Elegant Ambience

Breakfast, lunch and a formal dinner are served in one sitting only in the charming Victorian atmosphere of the Dining Cars - meals carefully prepared are complemented by a selection of excellent South African wines. Attire that is more formal is worn in the evening on the "Pride of Africa". A jacket & tie is a minimum requirement, please.

The Observation Car seats 32 passengers and takes up the rear end of the train. The adjacent coach contains a smoking lounge which seats eight. At the centre of the train we have, when numbers dictate, a non-smoking Lounge Car, which comfortable seats 26 passengers. In maintaining the spirit of travel of a bygone era, there are no radios or television sets onboard and the use of mobile telephones is confined to the privacy of the suites. Smoking of cigarettes and cigars only is allowed in the privacy of the suites and in the Smoking Lounge.

Health

Passengers are advised to take anti-malarial precautions as might be prescribed.

Locomotion

Use of steam has become increasingly difficult over the past years, as more and more water and coaling facilities have been scrapped. Where facilities no longer exist, diesel or electric locomotives will be used. Rovos Rail will, however, endeavour to ensure that arrivals and departures in Pretoria are steam hauled.

Station Premises

The headquarters of Rovos Rail has now been established at our own station in Capital Park. Situated on Paul Kruger Street, 3km north of the city centre, this new 60-acre facility has provided our company and trains with a magnificent home and without a doubt the most outstanding private station in the world today. We also have a spaciously elegant lounge and office opposite the station entrance in Cape Town.

Passports and Visas

The onus is upon the client to ensure that passports and visas, as may be required, are valid.

Cancellation insurance

Cancellation insurance is compulsory. Our terms and conditions will be strictly adhered to and cancellation fees, where applicable, will not be waived.
