World's Fanciest Sleeper Cars
Pride of Africa, South Africa
Owner Rohan Vos greets passengers as they board, and this personal touch and careful attention to detail follow the Pride of Africa on its various routes through wildlife reserves, the Kalahari Desert, and Victoria Falls. At 172 square feet, the Pride of Africa’s Royal Suites come with separate lounge areas and en suite bathrooms (some with full Victorian bathtubs). Cabin refrigerators are stocked with complimentary libations, but don’t hesitate to buzz one of the punctilious attendants for a cocktail.
Deluxe Detail: King-size beds.
Royal Suite for the Cape Town–Pretoria (two nights) route: $2,973 per person for double occupancy.
