Steam Train Trips
Travel Back in Time...Revelling in The Romance of The Steam Train Era
Victoria Falls is synonymous with tourism and adventure... white water rafting, bungee jumping, helicopter flights etc. However the Steam Train Company aims is to provide and promote the historical and romantic aspects of this fascinating area. What better way to do this than in the comfort of a fully refurbished authentic first class steam train, viewing Africa the way it would have been done over one hundred years ago. The same company has now introduced an authentically styled 19th Century Tram click here for info.
The Steam Train...
We think this Steam Train Trip will appeal to those who want to be spoilt with luxury, revel in Nostalgia of a bygone era and see Victoria Falls in a completely unique way.
The Bridge Run
Is the old fashioned sunset steam train journey to the impressive Victoria Falls Bridge, a historical landmark that was completed in 1905 and the second most visited landmark in this area.
You meet at the Victoria Falls Train Station (directly opposite the grand and colonial Victoria Falls Hotel) and board the train via the red carpet, setting the opulent tone, making you feel very important.
Once everyone is aboard the old steam locomotive fires up and puffs its way along to the Victoria Falls Bridge. Relax in the luxury and comfort of the lounging car taking in the sights and sounds of Africa. Depending on how much game can be seen while in the park, the train should reach the bridge before sunset.
The train stops on the Bridge and if you wish you can disembark and wander along on this historical landmark. If not... just stay on board and enjoy drinks and snacks, while feasting your eyes on the breathtaking vista in front of you.
Cecil Rhodes whose vision it was to build the bridge, insisted that it be positioned, so that passengers travelling in the train would feel the spray of the Victoria Falls falling on their faces.
The Falls is close... you can see and feel it. What a way to savour the moment by sipping on a Gin and Tonic delivered to you by a waiter in crisp white uniform.
This is a sunset adventure with a difference.
