A Epic Journey of Discovery
May each year this 3400 kilometre 7-day journey takes the train from
Pretoria to Kimberley, centre of one of the world’s most famous diamond
rushes, where there’s an opportunity to visit the Big Hole, the world’s
largest man-made excavation, and to savour the 1870’s atmosphere of the
mine museum village. The railway line covers the stark vistas of the
arid Northern Cape as the train travels through Upington to the border
into Namibia. There is time for an excursion to the Fish River Canyon –
second only in size to the Grand Canyon and a truly spectacular sight.
The journey continues across the untamed beauty of the Kalahari Desert
and onto Windhoek, the capital of Namibia. After a short city tour and
an afternoon game drive the train continues onto Tsumeb for an
overnight stay at Mokuti Game Lodge in the Etosha National Park. On the
last morning the train passes along the German built railway through
the Namib desert and into Swakopmund, a perfectly preserved nineteenth
century German Hansa town set on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean.
