ICONIC African rail service operator Rovos Rail will enter the Democratic Republic of Congo with a one-off return journey from east to west Africa next year.
The 15-day inaugural Trail of Two Oceans itinerary is scheduled to depart Dar el Salaam, Tanzania, on 16 Jul and cross the country before passing through Zambia, the Congo and Angola, ending in Lobito on the Atlantic coast.
The journey will then operate in reverse, departing on 02 Aug.
Rovos says it will be the first time in history a passenger train will traverse the east-to-west “copper trail” along the way.
Included is a game visit of Selous Reserve, a fly-in two night safari in South Luangwa National Park in Zambia and a city tour of Lumbumbashi in DRC.
Bench Africa has prices on the tour from $16,440ppts based on a Pullman Cabin – more HERE.
