Bradt Guide Southern Africa by Rail
How to Enjoy African Trains
Southern Africa's passenger trains are almost an endangered species. Yet an increasing number of visitors are discovering the attractions of the luxury trains which criss-cross the region, while others seek adventure on rural steam lines such as that from Xai Xai to Manjacaze.
Southern Africa by Rail explores the myriad opportunities offered by train travel. Coverage of ticketing, timetables and all practical details, plus suggested itineraries, will help you to plan everything from that trip of a lifetime to a complex journey based on the rails. In the author's words, 'Soothed by a steady rhythm and distant rumble, there is, really no other way to travel.'
