This book is a magnificent account of the history and operations of Rovos Rail. For those who have have travelled on The Pride of Africa this book will serve as the ultimate souvenir of a great railway experience. For those who have not, it will provide a powerful incentive to go. Filled with text by various authors and historic pictures interspersed with brilliant water colours, this book is much more than just a record of a remarkable vision; it details the complex history of a unique idea inspired and driven by entrepreneur Rohan Vos: one man, one vision. For the dedicated railway enthusiast it will serve as a long-term reference resource of all the carriages restored and owned by Rovos Rail and so will enter the catalogues of railway memorabilia. The book is for everyone, and as a whole it forms a complete collage of the story of Rovos Rail.
