Rovos Rail - The Pride of Africa

< >
Step back in time and experience the luxury of a bygone era when you board Rovos Rail, the Pride of Africa, as it is fondly called. Experience the extravagant elegance of rail travel aboard the most luxurious train in the world. The trains consist of refurbished coaches with two lounges, two restaurant cars, and private sleeping compartments, each with private en suite facilities. Indulge yourself in luxury accommodation of the highest standard, epitomising a fine blend of old-world opulent charm and subtle modern innovations. Inside the wood-panelled coaches, sophisticated fine-dining beckons, while some of the most varied scenery imaginable unfolds beyond the windows.

Meals are served in a charming Victorian atmosphere within the dining cars, and guests love the formality of fine china, crisp linen and silver, and dress accordingly. The spirit of travel in a bygone era is conspicuous in the absence of radios or television sets on board. Recapture the romance and atmosphere of another day and age when privileged travellers sought the magic and mystery of Africa in a relaxed and elegant fashion. One of the great pleasures of life on a Rovos Rail journey is to sit in the observation car and watch South Africa's scenery go by.
For a holiday like no other, Ascot Tours exclusively offer The Rovos Golf Adventure, with departures twice a year. Only accessible through Ascot, this tour takes travellers on a golfing extravaganza to play safari-style courses, including Leopard Creek, Signature, and Gary Player in addition to thrilling game drives to see the Big Five, and the once-in-a-lifetime experience of the Extreme 19th, the longest and highest par-3 hole in the world! Rovos Rail certainly lives up to its international reputation for its truly world-class travel experience, with Ascot's exclusive Rovos Golf Adventure taking you on a soujourn to remember for years to come.
