Travel from Pretoria, South Africa to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe in luxurious comfort aboard the Rovos Rail for a 4 Day Journey - This three-night adventure begins with the train’s departure from Rovos Rail Station in Pretoria. It then winds its way north through Warmbaths, so named for its mineral waters, and Nylstroom, christened by the Voortrekkers as the source of the Nile River as the town’s river happened to be north flowing. The train then passes the edge of the escarpment and crosses the Tropic of Capricorn en route to the border with Zimbabwe. After formalities at Beitbridge the next morning, the train travels towards Bulawayo, second city of Zimbabwe, capital of Matabeleland and industrial capital of the country. The following day sees the train travelling along one of the world’s longest stretches of straight railway line – 114 kilometres – before traversing Hwange National Park, a rich and diverse wildlife sanctuary where animals can be spotted from the train and a game drive excursion is enjoyed. After a service stop at Thompsons Junction, the sojourn ends at the incomparable Victoria Falls on the mighty Zambezi River. The surrounding areas offer travellers many recreational opportunities including cruises, whitewater rafting as well as superb game viewing and photo safaris. Available in reverse. Depending upon railway capacity, this journey could be routed through Botswana.

It's not, "Should I buy one?" It's "Which one should I buy!?"🤔
Can’t come to Zimbabwe and not see the Victoria Falls. So this bus ride of 12 hours from Harare must be embarked upon. I stayed at a camp site so near to the falls that I literally took a stroll there. Not the peak season, so tourists are not as many and the water flow not as much. Still a sight to behold, even though I have seen both Niagara and Iguazu when both looked very rushed. After the visit, I strolled back to the camp as though I have just taken a stroll in my back garden, notwithstanding paying USD30 for the privilege. I don’t know I should liken the falls as the tea spout or the toilet bowl but you get the idea - the water congestion is a spectacular spectacle. The water will go where it is must to go, as the Chinese saying goes, man climbs upward whereas water flows downward. In the evening a relaxing sunset cruise along the Zambezi, enjoying the calm and beautiful Zambezi, the African sunset and the alcohol (yes, this is still flowing while the fuel is drying up). Sighted some hippos playing in the water and a croc on the bank. It may be calm water but don’t think there is no croc in the water, as the Malaysian proverb says. Zimbabwe, a land of intrigues.
Litros y litros de agua desbordándose, derramándose sin sentido. Parecía que la naturaleza, colmada de vida, decidiera derrocharse por el cortado.
Toneladas de agua que la catarata vomitaba en un intento de liberarse, de expresarse y de demostrar quién es grande y quién no en el juego de la vida.
Era una demostración de poder, de un TODO sobrecogedor. Es imposible que hoy podamos recordarlas tal y como las vivimos entonces...
La energía, la potencia que desprendían no se puede guardar ni almacenar, sólo se puede sentir y hacerla parte de ti, de tu espíritu para siempre. .
You know we've got you with Zimbabwe's coolest secret spots. 😉
The campsite, set against a vibrant stream, in a lush forest. There is a camping area, braai areas and cement tables perfect for a get together.
