Victoria Falls Train Tour Details
You’re picked up from your hotel and transported to Bushtracks siding.
After photo opportunities with the beautiful Locomotive 156 or 204 there is a short safety briefing, followed by a refreshing drink, then a walk along the red carpet to the train and board your air-conditioned carriage. Once on board, the luxurious steam train will travel to the Victoria Falls Bridge where you’re served with light snacks and beverages along the way. At the bridge, which was built so passengers could feel the spray of the falls while on the train, you may embark for a wonderful photo opportunity of Victoria Falls while the sun sets.
After half an hour on the bridge, it’s time to return to Zambia and make the switch to the Mulobezi line which goes along the Zambezi River. This part of the journey gives you the opportunity to view local wildlife and the wonderful Zambian landscape, while being served drinks along the way.
When the dinner bell rings, it is time for the train manager to lead guests to the dining carriage where a four-course dinner, prepared by the staff at the Royal Livingstone Hotel, is served.
Guests return to Bushtracks siding about 8 pm and are transferred back to their hotels.
