The Southern Cross Adventure

The train travels through 6 countries along the most spectacular landscapes: Mozambique, Swaziland, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa. With other words a cocktail of different African cultures.

The Good Hope Adventure

This trip takes you to the most beautiful destinations in South Africa, along a variation of landscapes, coastlines and cultures.  This is what one calls the 'Rainbow Nation' of South Africa.

The Dune Adventure

This route explores the magnificent landscapes of Namibia, a beautiful country with many contrasts: colourful deserts, dunes, almost extra terrestrial stone formations, famous nature reserves, Bushman culture, coastal towns with a German colonial past and wild Atlantic coastlines. An extra 3 days stay in Cape Town makes this journey complete (the journey departs and arrived in Cape Town).
