We are Reviving the Ultimate Africa Journey of a Lifetime

From the Cape to Cairo, this Africa train journey is the ultimate way to see the continent.

Masi JumperWith 45 years of experience providing countless travel experiences, we have created our biggest adventure yet. The Cape to Cairo… Ultimate Journey of a Lifetime is a 32-day Africa trip of dreams. It will embark in January 2016, with an expert team of local representatives. As well, I will be there to escort this trip personally, along with my wife, Claire.

Panoramic Cape Town_92510755The Cape to Cairo dream is an old one, envisioned by Cecil Rhodes in the late 19th century, when British colonial control of Africa was at its height. Rhodes was adamant that Cape Town could be connected to Egypt via a series of railway lines through the British colonies. 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.

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.

The gap in the route between Kenya and Egypt necessitates some flying, but travellers will find this small loss in bragging rights well worth it when they touch down for a short Ethiopia tour en route. Not only will passengers see the highlights of Southern Africa, Eastern Africa, and Egypt, they’ll explore the only country on the continent to remain completely independent of colonial rule.

Transcending typical Africa tours, passengers can expect luxurious accommodation throughout their journey, embarking via Rovos Rail, Africa’s most prestigious luxury train service. All accommodation and safari camps offer the highest standards of comfort and service, without compromising that sense of adventure that makes Africa so appealing. This is the cross-continental adventure travellers will be talking about for years.

President and Founder, Goway Travel -
Goway Travel started in Bruce’s Toronto apartment in 1970 with a telephone and an atlas. A former Australian banker turned tour-guide, seeing the world became his most recommended personal investment, and has since created a world company specializing in long-haul destinations for real travellers. While his bucket list only gets longer, he has run the Athens marathon, climbed Mt Kilimanjaro and bush-wacked in Papua New Guinea, he’s actually a closet-magazine editor who loves nothing more than using his scissors, red pen and glue stick to add the final touches to the latest brochure. While 40+ years in North America have made him appreciate all weather conditions, as an Aussie all his staff know he’s waiting to buy them a round on Fridays at the local office pub - rain, snow or sunshine.
