Slow Train Through Africa

Slow Train Through Africa sees amiable British actor Griff Rhys Jones trekking by train through Africa, meeting the locals and looking upon some of the most stunning scenery the world has to offer.

Griff Rhys Jones makes for a lively travel guide, and Slow Train Through Africa is entertaining narrative journalism that takes audiences across Africa to fabled cities, such as Morocco and Marrakesh, through to the ancient city of Fes, then Algeria, back to Spain, only to come back to North Africa to the Algerian port of Oran.

The talkative and excitable Rhys Jones takes to the trains of Africa over five separate adventures. He claims the train is the perfect ‘unhurried’ way to travel, which makes it ideal for meeting interesting people and experiencing the beauty of the land along the way.
