|The 3 400-km journey takes the Pride of Africa from Pretoria to Kimberley, centre of one of the world’s most famous diamond rushes, where there’s an opportunity to visit the Big Hole and experience the atmosphere of the 1870’s.|
Enjoy a walking tour in Upington, the principal town of the Northern Province bound by the Orange River and the Kalahari Desert. Then it’s on through the stark vistas of the arid Northern Cape into Namibia at Ariamsvlei. There is an excursion to the spectacular Fish River Canyon – second in size and splendour to the Grand Canyon.
|A short visit to Keetmanshoop offers another opportunity for a walking tour as we visit this small but important sheep farming town. The train continues across the Kalahari Desert to Namibia’s capital city Windhoek, a lively, cosmopolitan city with a strong German flavour.|

A highlight of the tour is a twenty-four hour excursion to the world famous Sossusvlei, a stunning pan in the Namib Desert surrounded by massive red sand dunes. After an overnight stay at Sossusvlei rejoin the train in Windhoek where the journey continues overnight to Tsumeb and the game rich Etosha National Park.

This is an unforgettable end to a remarkable journey.
