custom touring shongololo express

The well know South African train, the SHONGOLOLO EXPRESS, was purchased by ROVOS RAIL in January 2016 and has undergone a facelift. The train has been repainted in green and cream and an additional dining car plus an observation car have been added. The accommodation of six Emerald Suites (± 10sqm) and 30 Gold Cabins (± 7sqm) remains the same.

The journeys have been redesigned with more stationary time at night and less road time spent on the excursions. Golf has been introduced to the Good-Hope trip, renamed Good-Hope Golf, with courses such as the Arabella Golf Estate, Ernie Els Oubaai, Fancourt, Champagne Sports Resort, Durban Country Club, Zimbali, Royal Swazi and Leopard Creek being available to golfing guests, while exciting excursions are included for non golfers.

Book your seat today on a memorable holiday journey in South Africa and Namibia: Custom Touring will arrange everything for you: airport/train station transfers, extra hotel nights accommodation, domestic flights and whatever additional private touring you would like to include in your itinerary. Make up a party of friends and we will customize an amazing adventure for you.
