His vision was completed all the way up to Kenya, before shifting economic realities and the end of the colonial era put plans on hold indefinitely.
This did not however, sate adventurers eager to travel the route. Taking guests from one of the world’s most beautiful city locations to its only surviving ancient wonder, this is Africa’s ultimate rail journey, taking in majestic Victoria Falls, a Mountain Gorilla trek, and opportunities for an African safari through some of the continent’s most famous parks and reserves.
