DAR ES SALAAM
DAR ES SALAAM
An Authentic African Adventure (via Botswana)
July every year, this epic 14-day journey travels through South Africa,
Zimbabwe, Zambia and Tanzania and is one of the most famous train
journeys in the world. This magnificent sojourn will take you through
South Africa with short tours of the diamond town of Kimberley and the
capital city of Pretoria. Then a two-night stay in a private game lodge
in the famous Kruger Park Game area, before crossing into Zimbabwe,
with another overnight stop at the Victoria Falls Hotel. After crossing
the mighty Zambezi River travel north eastwards through Zambia, joining
the Tazara Railway line at Kapiri Mposhe. Enjoy a bush walk and picnic
at Kundalilia Falls, and continue the climb towards the
Zambian/Tanzanian border, almost the midpoint between Africa’s two
Great Rift Valley lakes. Descend into the Rift Valley itself and enjoy
spectacular scenery as the train negotiates the tunnels, switchbacks
and viaducts of the escarpment. Early on the last day the train passes
through the Selous Game Reserve, the largest on the Continent - a
vision of timeless Africa shortly before the bustle of arrival in Dar
Es Salaam Station.
