July through September, 2015

From Cape Town, we boarded Rovos Rail for a 7 day train journey to Victoria Falls. The Rovos train recreates the luxury of Edwardian England (viz. the years leading up to Downton Abbey). Each couple has their own private room and bath, and must “dress for dinner.” On the way we made several scheduled stops, inluding the Kimberly Diamond Mine and game parks in Botswana and Zimbabwe. Hwange Park in Zimbabwe was much in the news both before and after our visit.
