Luxuszugreise Trail of two Oceans Tansania nach Angola/Angola nach Tansania

Tansania (Dar es Salaam)-Zambia-Demokratische Republik Kongo-Angola (Lobito) und umgekehrt

15 Tage | ab USD 12.820 pro Person | Buchungscode: Z60/Z61

NEU: Angola: Ost-West-Afrikanisches Abenteuer, welches den Atlantik und den Indischen Ozean vereinigt

Im Juli 2019 fährt der Rovos Rail erstmalig eine neue 15-tägige Route zwischen Tansania, Zambia, der Demokratischen Republik Kongo und Angola. Das erste Mal wird ein Zugreisender die Möglichkeit haben, den berühmten Ost-West-Kupferpfad zu bereisen.

“To be able to introduce a new adventure after 29 years in operation is exciting and presents me with a refreshing operational challenge,” says Rohan Vos, owner and CEO. “It’s taken over two years to acquire permission and have our proposed itinerary approved by the respective authorities. My team and I have flown across our borders on a few occasions to meet the relevant officials, drive the route and conduct site visits in an effort to smooth the way as best we can for our band of intrepid travellers who will hopefully join us on this expedition.”

Die Eröffnungsreise beginnt am 16. Juli 2019 ausgehend von der Hauptstadt Tansanias Dar Es Salaam und beinhaltet einen Besuch des Selous-Wild-Reservates, eine Fly-In-Safari für zwei Nächte im South Luangwa National Park in Zambia und eine Stadtrundfahrt durch Lubumbashi (Demokratische Republik Kongo). Von hier aus fährt der Zug entlang der Benguala-Strecke, wo immer wieder Stopps für Erkundungen und Wanderungen eingelegt werden bis nach Lobito in Angola. Danach wird die Reise in umgekehrter Richtung ab Lobito (Angola) nach Tansania (Dar es Salaam) am 2. August 2019 durchgeführt.
