The Cape Town Journey : Rovos Rail (Northbound)


For many visitors to South Africa, there is no finer way to see the country than on the
popular 48-hour weekly journeys between Pretoria and Cape Town. This 1 600-
kilometre meander is a perfect illustration of South Africa as a world in one country.
Travel the grasslands of the gold-rich Highveld to the haunting barrenness of the
Great Karoo; trundle through the spectacular mountain ranges and scenic winelands
of the Cape. Journey’s end is Cape Town, the Mother City of South Africa, cradled by
the imposing bulk of Table Mountain, Devil’s Peak and Lion’s Head.


Highlights of the north- and southbound routes include a visit to the historic village of
Matjiesfontein; this authentic perfectly preserved Victorian Village, which was founded
by Mr Logan as a refreshment stop in 1890, also boasts an impressive museum on the
platform. Another stop is made in Kimberley providing an opportunity to enjoy a city
tour and a visit to the Diamond Mine Museum and the world’s largest man-made
excavation, the Big Hole.
