A New Route for Rovos
In July 2019 the iconic and historic Rovos Rail will set off on its first 15-day excursion across Tanzania, Zambia, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Angola.
To be able to introduce a new adventure after 29 years in operation is exciting and presents me with a refreshing operational challenge," said Rohan Vos, owner and CEO. "It's taken over two years to acquire permission and have our proposed itinerary approved by the respective authorities. My team and I have flown across our borders on a few occasions to meet the relevant officials, drive the route and conduct site visits in an effort to smooth the way as best we can for our band of intrepid travelers who will hopefully join us on this expedition."
The inaugural trip embarks from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, on July 19th (a city familiar to Rovos Rail as it has been running its 15-day Cape to Dar trip since 1993), and includes a game visit in the Selous Reserve, a fly-in two night safari in the South Luangwa National Park (Zambia) and a city tour of Lubumbashi (Congo). Thereafter, it joins the Benguela Line for short walking tours detailing Angola's recent history with journey's end in Lobito, Angola. The voyage is available in reverse departing from Lobito on August 2, 2019.
