Review of Victoria Falls Steam Train - CLOSED

Reviewed 25 September 2011

Whilst the ticket for the Royal Livingstone Rxpress may seem expensive for us it was conpletly worth it. The train takes you through the national park as well
as through some local
villages where we met some young children.
The food was great and most alcoholic drinks were included so it seemed good value for money.
Very romantic and amazing sunsets

The Victoria Falls Steam Train is a fun experience for travelers who want to see the Falls from a different vantage point. The train departs both from the Victoria Falls Train station and the Victoria Falls Hotel. The train does not operate every day, so check local schedules or book through the website, a local guide, or your hotel concierge. The ticket price includes a 2 hour round trip (around 5-7 p.m.) on historic refurbished train cars from the station to the Victoria Falls Bridge overlooking the river gorge and the distant Victoria Falls at sunset. This is a fun way to see the bridge for those not interested in bungee jumping or zip lining. The ticket includes a welcome cocktail and snacks. There is also sparkling wine served by staff members on the bridge just before sunset. The view was GORGEOUS!! The bridge also has a painted line marking the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. Be aware that locals selling curios will approach tourists on the bridge, but it did not really bother us too much.
