GLOBAL SPORTING SAFARIS, INC. / ROVOS RAIL: Rovos Rail’s 'Pride of Africa' is a restored 1920s vintage Edwardian train complete with original dining and observation cars. From the observation car complete with a viewing deck, to the dining car with linen-covered tables set with fine china and crystal, to each well-appointed stateroom with its private bath, the Rovos Rail is a study in elegance. Add an attentive staff and all the elements are in place for travel on what many consider the most luxurious train in the world. This journey offers wingshooting: driven guinea fowl and francolin, decoyed pigeons, and high-volume dove and waterfowl action. When the time comes to board, a red carpet shows the way and champagne cocktails are served while the luggage is whisked away to your stateroom. Your journey takes you from Pretoria to the bushveldt and farmlands of the North West province, the diamond fields of the Northern Cape, and the rich game lands of the Free State before finally returning you to the Pretoria Station. The first two days are devoted to guinea fowl shooting. Guineas are strong-flying game birds that are at their best when driven by 60–100 beaters towards a waiting line of guns. In addition to the driven days, there are two days of dove and pigeon action. The shooting is near Bloemfontein, an agricultural region where sunflower, soybeans, corn and wheat are the primary crops. One day is devoted to waterfowl shooting in the Northern Cape near Kimberly. The goose hunting is over decoys while flighted ducks round out the day’s action. The plains game option offers visits to three or four properties during the course of the eight-day trip. Clients are met at the train by a professional hunter and transported to the hunting area. Each day, the non-shooters have their own guided program that includes visits to Boer War battlefields, art museums, spa visits, shopping and game drives. The non-shooters join the guns in the field for a half day of shooting and the midday meal while everyone on board spends a day touring the Diamond Mine Museum and Big Hole in Kimberley. The trip is designed with both shooters and non-shooters in mind, with outstanding programs for both. Rovos Rail truly provides the finest wingshooting safaris available. With fast-paced hunts, unforgettable destinations, and incredible accommodations aboard the most luxurious train in the world, they are something you must experience firsthand. Additional hunters and non-hunters are welcome at the rate of $24,450 for hunters and $11,380 for non-hunters. Arrival/departure point is Pretoria, South Africa. Accommodations in Pretoria before the hunt are recommended at $200/night. DALLAS SAFARI CLU THANKS GLOBAL SPORTING SAFARIS, INC. / ROVOS RAIL FOR THIS 100% DONATION.
