Rovos Rail is Africa's premier rail operator offering fully inclusive luxury rail journeys. They feature a number of itineraries for leisure travellers, however we are focusing on the two golfing trips they offer called The Golf Collage & The Golf Safari.
The team at Tee The World have personally been on the train and play most of the courses on these itineraries. So if you have questions please do get in touch.
The Golf Collage in 2020 is offering a choice of 4 departure dates. These are are 10 days in duration and run on these dates. The 4th-13th February, 20th-29th May, 28th Oct - 6th November and 9th to 18th November.
There are 2 departures than run from Pretoria to Cape Town and 2 departures than run Cape Town to Pretoria.
In brief all guests will enjoy fantastic service, play the best golf courses with a total of 6 rounds of golf played and have all food & beverage included while on the train, you even get lunch at the golf clubs!! If there are non-golfers in the party then you can take part in other activities like safari, city tours, shopping days and battlefield tours.
Due to the nature of these trips, it is a good idea to tailormake your holiday with us to include a few nights accomodation in Cape Town or Johannesberg before boarding the train. We will take care of all transfers to and from the airport and to and from the train itself.
We would suggest flying in premium economy to ensure you have a comfortable flight of 11 hours direct as well as having enough luggage allowance to bring your golf clubs.
Guide pricing for the Rovos Rail element only is from £7850 per person sharing and this is based on a deluxe suite.
The Golf Safari in 2020 is offering a choice of 5 departures dates. These are 9 days in durations and run on these dates 29th Jan - 6th Feb, 20th Feb -28th Feb, 26th Mar - 3rd April, 1st-9th October & 19th -27th November. All routes are Pretoria to Pretoria.
Golfing guests will play 5 of the finest courses in South Africa including the famous Leopard Creek Golf Course in The Kruger National Park as well as The Gary Player or Lost City course at The Sun City Resort.
Although this is a slightly shorter trip than the Golf Collage, we would still suggest adding some time at the start or the end of the trip to enjoy some of Johannesberg golf courses like The River Club which is a private members course and is only accesible when you stay at The Fairlawns Boutique Hotel.
Guide pricing for the Rovos Rail element only is £6100 per person sharing a deluxe suite.
While there is a lower category pullman suite, we feel that these suites are quite small so would always suggest the deluxe suite as starting point. There is a Royal Suite for those who wish to endulge that bit more.
