Enjoy Luxury Train Travel As You Explore The Wonders Of Africa
Have you dreamed of exploring Africa and following in the footsteps of great explorers of times gone by? Would wild animals roaming the plains of this great continent thrill you? Do you want to feel the spray from the mighty Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Wonders of the World? This would be the holiday of a life time! But, you need your comfort, you need to feel safe, and you hate sitting in a bus full of tourists rushing from place to place. Luxury train travel is the answer. Book a ticket and sit back as your travel from the Tavern of the Seas to the Smoke that Thunders in luxury train travel.
Start your journey from Table Mountain, the towering edifice at the southern tip of this great continent that was a welcome sight to the first seafarers who ventured far from home. Cape Town has embraced people from all over the world and a rich and fascinating medley of architecture and culture has been created under the southern skies. Traverse the hinterland through inland provinces and landlocked Botswana until, flanked by the small Zimbabwean town of Victoria Falls and Livingstone in Zambia, you encounter the greatest waterfall in Africa.
Step back into a more gracious age when you choose luxury train travel. The quietly elegant carriages brought back to their former glory by devotees of train travel embrace you in a cocoon of peace and comfort in which you can enjoy your holiday experience.
Quickly settle into your own five star luxury train travel compartment so that you can enjoy the sights before leaving. From the observation coach, gaze up at Table Mountain towering over the city. Slowly the train glides past Table Bay, through the wine lands of Stellenbosch and over the ragged mountains into the interior.
Enjoy a drink with your traveling companions as the train speeds across miles of seemingly deserted land. Raise your glass to the thousands of pink flamingo at home in the wetlands outside Kimberley.
Over a leisurely meal scour the horizons for wildebeest and rhino, herds of large African elephant and the tall long necked giraffe as you travel with style and poise through a baking hot Botswana.
Leaving Botswana you approach the little town of Victoria Falls. You see the spray plume and hear the rush of great quantities of water and you know that you have reached your destination.
Step out of your luxury train and through the stone entrance to the Victoria Falls Park. Close your raincoat tightly as you step up to the rails overlooking one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Your camera clicks rapidly as the spray engulfs you on its thundering way over the edge and into the river far below.
