During the day, the dress is smart casual. Attire that is more formal is worn in the evening on the " Pride of Africa". A collar & tie is a minimum requirement, please. Please include warm clothing for cold mornings and evenings.


Smoking of cigarettes and cigars only is allowed in the privacy of the suites and in the back half of the Observation Car. Please do not throw flammable items such as cigarette or cigar butts off the train, as bush fires in Africa are a constant and dangerous hazard.


There is a limited and simple laundry service on board comprising of household washers, dryers and steam irons. The turn around is 48 hours so the staff would not be able to handle a week’s worth of washing. Please advise your hostess if your clothing needs specialist attention.

Cuisine and Ambience

Breakfast, lunch and a formal dinner are served in one sitting only in the charming Victorian atmosphere of the Dining Cars - meals, carefully prepared are complemented by a selection of fine South African wines. Meals can be adapted to suit special requirements by prior arrangement.

The Observation Car seats 32 passengers and takes up the rear end of the train. At the center of the train we have, when numbers dictate, a non-smoking Lounge Car, which seats 26 passengers in comfort. In maintaining the spirit of travel of a bygone era, there are no radios or television sets onboard and the use of cellular telephones is confined to the privacy of the suites.
