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.
