Try this.

http://www.seat61.com/Zambia.htm

That page will provide links down the tracks from DAR to Capetown.

It is possible but by the time you have paid for all the tickets you may find it cheaper just to fly.

Train to Lusaka is interesting and more frequent flights to RSA from there or Livingstone.

Have fun.
