Travelling by rail, visiting stunning destinations, organizing exciting and culture rich tours, and offering a unique look at some of the worlds most beautiful landscapes from the comfort of luxury carriages, it’s no wonder we’re excited to announce that Rovos Rail will be joining us this year at Connections Luxury.

Offering a wealth of different experiences, including the Cape Town Journey, which takes you from Pretoria, right through Kimberley (with a detour to the diamond museum) and onto Cape Town, you’ll even catch a glimpse of Table Mountain on the way.

The trains themselves will certainly add a hint of nostalgia and old world style to your journey. Each one offers luxury travel along with fine foods and wines, and you’ll find the pre-1940 dining cars of the Edwardian and Classic trains sumptuous in their splendour.

If you want to add a taste of the wild to your client’s vacation, then travelling on Safari with Rovos Rail is certainly something you should consider offering! I know some of our buyers are very interested in safari trips, and Rovos offer 3 very exciting excursions: The Durban, Namibia and Golf Safaris. The Namibia Safari is a nine-day journey that travels from the savannahs of the Highveld all the way to the West Atlantic. Taking in the Fish River Canyon – second in size to the Grand Canyon and truly a spectacular sight, Sossusvlei, a stunning pan in the Namib Desert and the game-rich Etosha National Park, with many excursions in between, will be sure to satisfy the most ardent explorer.

I can’t wait to welcome the team from Rovos Rail to Connections Luxury, on the 29th and 30th September, and look forward to seeing them at the Four Seasons Hampshire.

I’m afraid we’re fully booked for supplier positions for this event, but do get in touch if you’d like to participate, as we do have a small number of sponsorship opportunities. Drop me a line if you’re interested!
