The South Africa Story by Jerry W. Bird

A once in a lifetime opportunity came our way just after New Years Day, 2004, when we journeyed cross country on Rovos Rail , the Pride of Africa, from Cape Town to the company's Captal Station complex at Pretoria. It was such a superb experience, we are feeding our descriptive story of the two-day rail tour to print and broadcast media on request, and a major feature will appear in Africa Magazinet. The story ran in the February edition of Travel World News as a double page spread, and thus reached a large coast to coast audience targeting the U.S. travel trade. continued.
