Rovos Rail, South Africa
This is a once in a lifetime trip, ideal for a celebration.
This must be one of the most exclusive and ultimate bird shooting trips in the world. After many years of experience and with our contacts in Southern Africa we decided to organise our own Train Shoot Safaris and we feel that we are now able to offer a truly bespoke service that we can tailor to our clients’ requirements.
We take the very best of our bird shooting opportunities, combine them with one of the most luxurious private trains in the world, and produce a simply unforgettable experience.
Our train is designed to carry an optimum of 16 – 20 people, but we can accommodate smaller and larger parties as required. The train is used solely a private shooting lodge, which travels from one shooting area to the next. Guns disembark and travel, usually a short distance, by vehicle to shoot flighted doves, pigeons, ducks, geese, sand grouse or driven guinea fowl and francolin.
The service, the food and the wine on the train is unbeatable and it is a unique experience to be travelling on your own private train. The train shoots vary from 5 to 10 days but can be longer if required. We are also very happy to organise pre or post train shoot trips to other parts of South Africa, East Africa or destinations in the Indian Ocean.
It is really the ultimate, exclusive shooting experience.
