This nine-day 3 400-kilometre annual train journey will take you from the savannahs of the Highveld to the Atlantic in the west. Departing from Pretoria, the first stop is Kimberley, centre of one of the world’s famous diamond rushes where there is an opportunity to savour the 1870s atmosphere of the mine museum village. The train  will then cross the Northern Cape to the Fish River Canyon, second in size to the Grand Canyon and truly a spectacular sight. Guests will continue across the untamed beauty of the Kalahari Desert to Namibia’s capital for a tour. Windhoek is a lively, cosmopolitan city with a strong German flavour. Then you'll take a short flight to the renowned Sossusvlei, in the Namib Desert, for an overnight stay followed by a night in the game-rich Etosha National Park. On the last morning, the train travels the Namib to the perfectly preserved 19th-century German town of Swakopmund, an unforgettable end to a remarkable journey.
