Is that nearest point of relief?
What a view!
A tricky approach shot.

South Africa

How does this sound – challenging holes which border the Kruger National Park or feeling the spray come off the Indian Ocean or the hallowed fairways of Gary Player’s Sun City course? Pretty good, don’t you think. And what’s better is that you can have it all …. At the same time you travel in the unforgettable luxury of ‘Rovos Rail’ (think Orient Express meets Safari meets great golf!)

  • Day 1  Arrive at South Africa’s Johannesburg airport and transfer to Pretoria. Relax tonight in preparation for the trip of a lifetime tomorrow.
  • Day 2  Meet up with the rest of the guests who are going to experience this journey with you – and within no time at all you’ll feel like you’ve known one another for years! The train will take you to ‘Waterval Onder’ where you will remain tonight.
  • Day 3  Your first golf outing is at the HANS MERENSKY ESTATE which is located along the edge of the Kruger National Park. Keep a look out for any monkeys as they are known for stealing golf balls from the middle of fairways! Return to the train as it departs for Swaziland this evening.
  • Day 4  ROYAL SWAZILAND GOLF CLUB is your playground today – and the non golfers will be having their first taste of a Game Drive today at the Mkhaya Game Park.
  • Day 5  Time to take in some local sights today as you have a break from golf. The Hluhluwe Game Reserve is on the schedule today with some crocodile and hippo spotting in the afternoon as you cruise along the St Lucia Lake. What a day!
  • Day 6  Back to the golf course today as you plan a visit to the seaside country club that is DURBAN BEACHWOOD. Feel the spray off the Indian Ocean and if you look behind you on the 5th tee, you might find that you need to delay your tee-shot as you wait for some local light aircraft to come in to land (the airstrip is right behind you!).
  • Day 7  Dramatic, elevated tees and shots begging to be hit into the stunning Drakensberg Mountains – this is what awaits today as you play the CHAMPAGNE SPORTS RESORT COURSE. This venue has an abundance of bridges, ponds and gaping chasms to be hit over.
  • Day 8  A rest day, phew, as you admire the scenery from the train while travelling from Ladysmith en route to Sun City, and reminisce over the week so far.
  • Day 9  The great ‘GARY PLAYER SUN CITY’ course is our final golfing destination on this fantastic trip – ranked as no 1 in South Africa it is a fearsome test of 7500 yards from the championship tees!
  • Day 10  Our final day sees us travel back to Pretoria’s Capital Park region where we must say farewell to this idyllic lifestyle and our new-found friends. It’s hard to tell what will live on in the memory the most – the ‘Big Five’ from the Game Reserves, the stunning backdrops for the golf courses, the views from the train or the exemplary service that typifies this whole trip? Why don’t you decide …
