Victoria Falls Tram

An authentically styled 19th century tram service - Now known as the Bamba Tram

The Bamba Tram - the Victoria Falls tram exerience with sereval trips on offer

The Bamba Tram on the Victoria Falls Bridge

Since the stop of the previous tram trips, the operators of the hop-on hop-off Bamba Bus took over the running, and in April 2022, they introduced the Bamba Tram.

The experiences are at decent prices, and include a mid-morning bridge run or sunrise bridge run. All trips include a transfer to and from the tram, which is stationed at Three Monkeys, near the Victoria Falls Railway Station. Guests are required to be at the tram at least 15 minutes before departure, to allow for enough time for check-in.

Sunrise Bridge Run

This first trip of the day takes off at 6:00am from where the tram is stationed. The tram meanders through the national park near the Falls, making a wide sweep through the African bush, and there is a chance to see some of the wildlife that roams through there. You may spot elephant, buffalo, waterbuck or bushbuck, while the guide narrates the area's fascinating history.

The tram continues towards the border, and goes on past the border post and on to the Victoria Falls Bridge. The bridge, spans the Batoka Gorge in between Zimbabwe and Zambia. You may disembark the tram and take in the impressive scenery of the Victoria Falls, the gorge and the Zambezi River down below. Watch the adrenalin junkies take a leap off the bridge into the gorge via bridge swing or bungee, or zip across the gorge on the bridge slide.

Customer Feedback

Brilliant service and so helpful
by Sally (Blisworth, U.K.)
I stumbled across Victoria Fall Guide by accident, but I am so glad I did. Tony and Boo were so helpful, advising us on the best activities for us as I have mobility issues, and arranging our itinerary and booking everything. I had no worries about using them, or sending a very large payment to someone I didn’t know. Everything they booked for us was so well organised, pick ups on time, knowledgeable and friendly guides, clean transport. We did the walking tour of the falls, the sunset dinner cruise, full day at Chobe, the team, lion encounter and the helicopter and every single one was faultless. We were also due to do the lunar rainbow but unfortunately it was cancelled, however boo arranged the refund immediately. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We are so grateful to them for making our special holiday even more so.
