TORONTO — Goway has a limited number of cabins on the 12-day northbound Pretoria to Victoria Falls Shongololo train journey in January 2019.
“These trips typically sell out a year in advance,” said Moira Smith, General Manager for Goway Africa. “This space has opened up, and we expect the cabins to sell out fast.”
Africa is hot and availability is at a premium. This is particularly the case in South Africa, adds Smith.
Since Rovos Rail purchased the Shongololo, the train has been completely overhauled and refitted, with extra communal carriages supplied.
Likened to a “cruise on wheels”, it offers the ideal way to visit four countries in a limited time period, says Smith. Guests sleep on the train and sightsee during the day. Breakfast and lunches are included. The Southern Cross journey travels from South Africa via Mozambique and Swaziland to Zimbabwe.
