Uganda is where the East African savannah meets the West African jungle. Where else, but in this impossibly lush country, can one observe lions prowling the open plains in the morning and track chimpanzees through the rainforest undergrowth the same afternoon, then the next day navigate tropical channels teeming with hippo and crocks before setting off into the misty mountains to stare deep into the eyes of a mountain gorilla? Certainly, Uganda is the only Safari destination whose range of forest primates is as impressive its selection of plains antelope. And this verdant biodiversity is further attested to by Uganda’s status as by far smallest of the four African countries whose bird checklist tops the 1,000 mark!
Yet, there is more to the country than wildlife – far more!
There is nothing quite like going on 'safari' to see the amazing animals of Africa. Whether you choose the great game parks of East Africa, a private game reserve in South Africa, the arid vastness of Etosha Pan in Namibia, or the lush wetlands of the Okavango Delta, we'll ensure your safari will be a never-to-be forgotten experience.View Holidays Listings
ROVOS RAIL PURCHASES THE SHONGOLOLO EXPRESS
Early in January of 2016 Rovos Rail purchased the Shongololo Express train of 19 coaches and agreed to employ all the personnel.
“Operating a three-star train had always been at the back of my mind. When I learned that the Shongololo Express was on offer the timing seemed serendipitous and so an opportunity not to be missed”, says Rohan Vos, owner and CEO of the Rovos Rail Group, of the purchase.
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) will remain as is.
The three itineraries, Southern Cross – Pretoria to Victoria Falls (12 days), Dune Express – Pretoria to Swakopmund (12 days), Good-Hope – Pretoria to Cape Town (15 days); have been rebuilt 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 guests.
All journeys are available in reverse and, as before, guests can purchase optional extras that include visits to cultural, historical or heritage sites and overnight stays at safari lodges. The rates do not include most lunches, beverages and laundry.
