After breakfast, stop in Kimberley to visit the Open Diamond Mine Museum and take a tour of this historic site. Learn about the diamond-rush years and view a replica of the world’s largest diamond. See the Big Hole, the biggest hand-dug excavation on Earth, before wandering the Old Town where period buildings have been restored to their former glory. Return for lunch on board as the train travels onwards through some of the most breathtaking countryside to be found anywhere in the world, winding its way through sleepless mountain passes, valleys, vineyards and desert plains.
