Tailor Made South Africa Holidays

Luxury Train Travel in South Africa

From the world-class vineyards that line the famous Wine Route to the most spectacular wildlife encounters imaginable, South Africa caters for every possible taste, its natural and cultural diversity, near-constant sunshine and wealth of exciting towns and cities combining to create a dream destination.

Perfect for exploration by train, South Africa manages to distil everything that is magical about Africa into a single country. Let GRJ independent create a bespoke rail tour of this spellbinding country and enjoy an adventure tailored to your requirements, filled with awe-inspiring sights and experiences. Located on the beautiful Cape Peninsula, Cape Town provides an unbeatable introduction to the wonders in store for you.

Nestling beneath the iconic Table Mountain, South Africa's multicultural capital city boasts colonial history - most evident at the delightful Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, the stunning Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, and some of the country's best shopping and dining experiences.

Speak to one of our Tour Advisors about enhancing your itinerary by adding a trip to Robben Island, upon which Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for eighteen years, or to the nearby Boulders Beach at Simons Town, which is famous for its colony of tame African penguins. You can also customise your holiday with luxury accommodation and by upgrading your rail or flight classes.

A Bespoke Adventure in Africa

From Cape Town, South Africa's treasures lie in every direction. Its modern and efficient rail network is the largest on the continent, affording a wide degree of freedom to create your own independent rail tour of South Africa. Alternatively, you might choose to join the famous Pride of Africa, a contender for the title of Most Luxurious Train in the World.

Travelling through Africa by train is the most relaxing and comfortable way in which to appreciate the sheer natural beauty of landscapes, which range from open desert to wetlands, and soaring mountains to wildflower meadows. Whichever route you take through South Africa, you'll find something new, amazing and unforgettable at every turn.
