If you love luxury train journeys, you are in luck. The new Bushtracks Express recently started regular service for their Victoria Falls Bridge Run, departing from Victoria Falls Station in Zimbabwe.
We love this as an excellent way to experience the spectacular Victoria Falls!
Your Luxury Train Journey
This three hour journey begins at the Victoria Falls station, where your guide will drop you off. After a warm greeting and welcome drink, stroll along the red carpet to board the steam train. Be sure to get photos of the picturesque train in full steam before you board! Settle in as the train chugs towards the border. Be sure to take this opportunity to admire the fully-restored carriages, every detail lovingly arranged, harkening to a bygone era.
Enjoy pre-dinner drinks and tasty snacks, such as smoked salmon rosettes or crocodile sausage rolls, as the Falls come into view.
Victoria Falls Bridge
Just before sunset, the train arrives at the Victoria Falls Bridge. The bridge was built in 1905 by Cecil Rhodes, with the idea that the train should be near enough to be sprayed by the falls. Ever since, the bridge has been an iconic site at Victoria Falls. Here you can get off the train and admire the view as the sun sets over Africa before returning to your hotel for the evening.
