Steam Train Trips Are Back in Victoria Falls

(Victoria Falls)

8 March 2016

Taking off from the Victoria Falls Station in Zimbabwe, the Bushtracks Express has brought back the elegant and exciting trip to the Victoria Falls Bridge by Steam Train. The trips were launched on March 1st of this year and are run on a regular schedule every Tuesday and Friday.

The train's journey starts off at the station in the late afternoon, and makes its way into the Victoria Falls Park, where one might spot some game (depending on the season). From there, guests are taken to the Victoria Falls Bridge where they can disembark for some sight-seeing, or stay in the air-conditioned train and enjoy the drinks and the view. The variety of canap├ęs and beverages are provided by the Victoria Falls Hotel, along with premium beverages which are not included on the ticket, but can be purchased on the train.

After sunset, the train slowly makes its way back through the park to the Victoria Falls Station.

"The train offers discerning guests the ultimate pre-dinner experience going back in time to the age of Steam train travel" - Bushtracks Africa

Bushtracks Africa also offer dinner runs from the Zambian side of the border, in the Royal Livingstone Express. The snacks, drinks and food on these trips are provided by The Royal Livingstone Hotel.
