the Shongololo Good Hope Express

In februari 2004, we are gone on vacantion to South Africa with the Shongololo Good Hope Express. This is a hotel train that haves minniebuses for excursions. On the way we took also naturally many photographs of trains and we visited some museums where also locomotives to see were.

Here you see an impression of the train and the travel
