Why There Is No Cape to Cairo

Explore the Cape to Cairo railway, a legendary route that goes from Cape Town, South Africa to Cairo, Egypt—or is supposed to, anyway. Join Bright Trip Creator and native South African, Driaan Louw, as he explores the story of how this idea first came to be and why this route still doesn’t exist by rail or by road (despite numerous attempts to construct it over the past century). This is a tale of conflict, colonialism, and a crazy, rich boy called Cecil Rhodes.
