Rovos Covid-19 Cleaning Processes

Rovos Luxury Train Club

Rovos Covid-19 Cleaning Processes

Every luxury train including the Rovos trains already had a comprehensive cleaning process before the coronavirus pandemic. This is necessary to maintain standards for discerning passengers. In addition, all luxury train companies need to maximise investment in the carriages. It is also notable that something about these monarchs of the rail develops team spirit and pride in their crews.

With the Covid-19 pandemic, Rovos luxury train cleaning processes have been further developed.

Be aware. Travel wisely. Live the moment.

The Pride of Africa trains from Rovos Rail provide very much more than mere rail transportation - from these transports of delight one can experience the richness of southern Africa, with north and southbound routes between Pretoria and Cape Town as well as 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.

The Rovos Covid-19 cleaning processes also cover the Shongololo Express. This is a First Class experience from Rovos who have an enviable reputation in delivering excellent service and attention to detail.

Travelling comfortably and securely 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.
