South Africa is a classic safari destination, but its scenic and cultural highlights will also captivate many travellers.

South Africa has it all – this is the place where you can journey from soaring mountains to sun-baked deserts in a day, enjoy the dramatic coastlines and delicious wine in an afternoon, or see the Big Five – buffalo, elephant, lion, leopard and rhinoceros – all within a game reserve. For railfans though, it is the vast collection of locomotives in the Sandstone Estates, along with their ever-growing collection of tractors, vintage buses, cars and military vehicles, that wins the hearts of many.

PTG offers an exclusive rail tour of South Africa that centres around the Sandstone Estates. At the end of the tour, visitors can choose to add a two-night visit to Victoria Falls, which includes a hosted tour onboard the historic tram to the Victoria Falls Bridge, and round off the trip with a three-night wildlife safari trip in the acclaimed Chobe National Park in Botswana.
