Day 1: The Adventure Begins

Board Rovos Rail in Pretoria & sit back as the train makes its way to the Zimbabwe border. Spend the night aboard the train on a full-board basis.

As soon as you arrive at Rovos Rail’s station in Pretoria, there’s no mistaking the theme of this trip: a return to the glory days of travel. Rovos Rail is all about sitting back in an armchair and letting the landscape entertain you. Polished wood and brass fittings, thick carpets and subtle lighting create an bygone atmosphere, and you’ll be settled into your accommodation by your butler as the train eases its way towards the Zimbabwean border where you’ll overnight, dressing – of course – for dinner.

Day 2: Africa Unfolds

Cross the border & relax aboard the train as you travel through Zimbabwe & to Bulawayo. Overnight on board on a full-board basis.

After border-crossing formalities you’ll watch the Zimbabwean landscape roll by; classic views of rolling farmland, dotted villages and flat-topped hills. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served on the train today; in between, it’s a day of leisure as the train heads towards Bulawayo. Meet fellow passengers in the lounge or dining cars, catch up with some reading or simply enjoy the view.

Day 3: A Big Game Safari

Travel a short distance to the Hwange National Park & disembark for a game drive. Overnight on board on a full-board basis.

The morning is spent travelling alongside Zimbabwe’s heavyweight game reserve – Hwange National Park. Tantalising views of wooded savannah and big game beckon and after lunch you’ll disembark for a game drive, care of The Hide safari lodge. You’ll be in the company of a sharp-eyed guide who’ll be on the lookout for Hwange’s signature species: lion, elephant, buffalo and giraffe. Back on board, you can trade safari stories over dinner as you travel to your overnight stop.

Day 4: The Journey Ends

Arrive at Victoria Falls mid-morning for the end of your train journey.

Breakfast is served aboard today and by mid-morning you’ll be coming to a halt in Victoria Falls, the end of the journey. There are many accommodation options on both sides of Victoria Falls – Zimbabwe and Zambia. Talk to us about the lodge best suited to your requirements and we’ll make the necessary bookings.

It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on!

Excellent service and they supplied good suggestions for our holiday they also organised all internal flights and arranged check in for us so we had no worries while on holiday. We have had a most memorable holiday staying at wonderful places thanks to Sabrina and Safari Online. Would recommend Safari Online to organise your holiday.

Professional, quick and top of the edge service!!!

From the very first contact we’re very happy about the respond time and quality of information from safari-online.com. Based on the received first tailor-made quote, which is a weblink with all the details about the flights, photos of the lodges etc. we knew that this is “our” partner for this trip. Our expectations were excelled!!!

An incredibly well organised tour with no hassles whatsoever.

Safari Online understood our needs and was able to present us with sensible options to choose from. It was evident that this tour operator has knowledgable and experienced agents who can arrange a seemless tour. We were provided with a professional online itinary which was comprehensive and easy to use, knew exactely what to expect, and encountered no stumble blocks along the way.

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Chris (USA)
Safari Online made our fantastic family holiday dream come true!!

Safari Online have been nothing but professional and incredible from the time we made our first enquiry to the last day of our stunning holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for Walter. We are now starting to plan our next family Safari for 2019. Guess who we will be booking with??? Safari Online we hope you are ready!!!!!

Penni (AU)
Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.
