Rovos Child Policy

Rovos Child Policy

Applies to Rovos Pride of Africa and Shongololo Express

Rovos Rail and Shongololo Express accommodate children.

The train operators ask parents to be sensitive to the adult nature and atmosphere of the train by guiding their children to be respectful of those around them and not to be noisy.

About Rovos Pride of Africa

The Pride of Africa trains from Rovos Rail provide more than just rail travel. Experience the richness of southern Africa, with north and southbound routes between Pretoria and Cape Town and a range of spectacular journeys to the east and to the west.

The trains combine the golden age of rail travel with modern conveniences, creating an unforgettable extravagant elegance of a bygone era.

About Shongololo Express

Rovos Child Policy applies to Shongololo Express Luxury Train Club

Travelling during the night, Shongololo Express trains save guests precious holiday time, arriving each dawn at a new destination.

Professional multi lingual guides take guests on inclusive scheduled excursions. An exciting and varied programme of touring, superb breakfasts and dinners with fine South African wines on board - all these combine to create an unforgettable holiday.
