Rovos Rail is set to launch its new route, the Trail of Two Oceans, in July 2019.
This will be an east-to-west African adventure and will be a 15 day expedition that covers Tanzania, Zambia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Angola.
The inaugural voyage is provisionally set to depart on 16 July 2019 from Dar Es Salaam, the capital of Tanzania, and includes a game visit in the Selous Game Reserve, a fly-in 2-night safari in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park and a city tour of Lubumbashi in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It then joins the Benguela line for short walking tours that detail Angola’s recent history, with the journey then ending in Lobito on Angola’s coast. The route will be available in reverse, departing from Lobito.
