Rovos Rail – Trail of Two Oceans

SELECT DESTINATIONS presents an iconic journey…

Tanzania • Zambia • DRC • Angola

TRAIL OF TWO OCEANS, an east-west African adventure uniting the Atlantic and Indian Oceans on the most luxurious train in the world.

From July 2019 as well as in 2020 Rovos Rail will set off on a new 15-day expedition traversing Tanzania, Zambia, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Angola. It will be the first time in history that a passenger train will travel the famous east-to-west copper trail on this route.

“To be able to introduce a new adventure after 29 years in operation is exciting and presents me with a refreshing operational challenge,” says Rohan Vos, owner and CEO. “It’s taken over two years to acquire permission and have our proposed itinerary approved by the respective authorities. My team and I have flown across our borders on a few occasions to meet the relevant officials, drive the route and conduct site visits in an effort to smooth the way as best we can for our band of intrepid travellers who will hopefully join us on this expedition.”

This inaugural voyage sets off on 16 July 2019 from the Tanzanian capital, Dar es Salaam and includes a game visit in the Selous Reserve, a fly-in two-night safari in the South Luangwa National Park (Zambia) and a city tour of Lubumbashi (DRC). Thereafter it joins the Benguela line for short walking tours detailing Angola’s recent history with journey’s end in Lobito. The voyage is available in reverse departing from Lobito (Angola).
