South Africa's crazy personal railway

30 years ago this month, Rohan Vos decided that what he really wanted to do with his life was have his own private railway in the middle of Africa. That may sound like the most insane idea you could ever dream up but today, you can ride on not just one but seven separate routes across Southern Africa on the Rovos Rail.

This little video (one of six that's been produced especially to mark the 30 year birthday) was sent to use yesterday.
Rovos is offering some equally crazy discounts to celebrate this month - so ask us if you'd like to know more!

Our logo is an image of a skull found in the Rising Star Cave System in Gauteng, South Africa in 2013. It was named ‘homo naledi’, meaning ‘human of the stars’.

The cave system has so far given rise to the remains of over 15 individuals, making it the largest hominid fossil remains site ever discovered.

Travelling to Southern Africa is truly a return to the source of humankind, to Where It All Began.
