The Pride of Africa

The epitome of exclusivity, the Pride of Africa train has all you need to live in fine style as Africa’s splendid scenery unfolds outside the windows. Every modern comfort has been carefully incorporated into the classic coaches, which feature handsome wood panelling and period Edwardian fittings.

The magnificent sleeping cars are spacious: The Pullman Suites measuring 76 sq ft are equipped with a comfortable sofa-seat during the day, and convert to double or bunk beds for the evening. They also have an en-suite bathroom with shower.

Deluxe Suites measure 118 sq ft, while the top Royal Suites take up half a carriage (172 sq ft). Each cabin type has a lounge area and en-suite facilities, plus a writing surface/desk, personal safe and refrigerated bar. Room service is available around the clock.

Meticulous planning goes into ensuring that all meals on board the Pride of Africa are of the highest quality, as befits the splendid Victorian-style restaurant cars in which they are served. The chefs take great care to use local ingredients, and traditional dishes such as game are a speciality. Fine South African wines accompany the meals.

The Pride of Africa includes a comfortably appointed lounge car, perfect for socialising or simply relaxing after the day’s programme. Yet for something possibly even more special, why not head to the back of the train to watch an unforgettable African sunset from the observation car?

Please note that we spend the southern part of our journey travelling on board the Pride of Africa transferring to a Business Class configured private aircraft and a five-star Lake Nasser cruiser for the remainder of our epic voyage.
