Your train will include two lounge cars, which have been converted with the sole purpose of making guests comfortable. Filled with deep couches and wingback chairs, it’s not surprising to see guests nodding off for an afternoon catnap to the sway of the train. A characteristic that is unique to the Rovos Rail is that the windows in the lounge car open. Though there is air conditioning, many passengers also enjoy getting to experience the sounds and smells of Africa as they journey through the countryside.
