Cape Town Journey

For many visitors to South Africa, there is no finer way to see the country than
on the popular 51-hour weekly journeys between Pretoria and Cape Town. This
1 600-kilometre meander is a perfect illustration of South Africa as a world in one
country. Travel the grasslands of the gold-rich Highveld to the haunting barrenness
of the Great Karoo; trundle through spectacular mountain ranges into the scenic
wineland valleys of the Cape. Cradled by the imposing bulk of Table Mountain,
Devil’s Peak and Lion’s Head is the Mother City, Cape Town, internationally known
for its majestic beauty offering a blend of cosmopolitan city life and outdoor
adventure, while the twin cities of Pretoria and Johannesburg form the economic
heartland of South Africa and the ideal departure point for Mpumalanga’s
world-famous game reserves. Highlights of the north- and southbound routes
include a visit to the quaint and historic village of Matjiesfontein; this authentic
perfectly preserved Victorian Village – which was founded by Mr Logan as a
refreshment stop in 1890 – also boasts an impressive museum on the platform
and a collection of vintage cars and classic railway carriages. Another stop
is made in Kimberley providing an opportunity to enjoy a
city tour and a visit to the Diamond Mine Museum and
the world’s largest man-made excavation, the Big Hole.
