About the tour
Fascinating wildlife is just waiting to be discovered on this South African rail adventure aboard the Pride of Africa - one of the world's great luxury trains. Our voyage of discovery takes us through South Africa's most well-known game parks and ends with 4 nights in the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town.
We fly from London Heathrow to Johannesburg, arriving on the morning of Day 2. We stay at the Courtyard Hotel Arcadia in Pretoria for 1 night. Our sightseeing begins with a visit to the Voortrekker Monument, an enormous structure dedicated to the history of South Africa set in a nature reserve close to Pretoria. We pause en route for lunch, dining in a local restaurant.

Mrs R Buckland
Great experience especially the train.spoiled only by BA.
Mr P Edmond
Arrangements, organisation, accommodation, food, drink, train and excursions all excellent and up to expectation except see below
A great way to see a lot of South Africa and in some style. The whole experience was amazing and well worth the money. Everything is arranged for you and you really only have to turn up. It is a 'full on' experience and much different from your normal beach holiday. It ensures you do things you ordinarily would think twice about.
