Victoria Falls Steam Train Trip. A trip on the steam train during your stay at Victoria Falls will transform you to a bygone era of luxury steam train travel. Go back in time and embark on a journey to the Victoria Falls Bridge in the comfort of stately carriages. The Steam Train departs from The Victoria Falls Station which is situated behind the Victoria Falls Hotel. This is a fitting departure point as the Hotel was built in 1904 to accommodate the workers building the Cape to Cairo Railway Line and the Victoria Falls Bridge. The hotel building itself is actually still owned by the Zimbabwe Railways.
After departure the Steam Train makes its way through the bush and towards the Victoria Falls Bridge. Once on the bridge you will be invited to step off the train and onto the Victoria Falls Bridge. From here you will be able to watch the sun set behind the Victoria falls before you make your way back to the station.
*Please note that the Victoria Falls Steam Train only departs on Tuesdays and Fridays.
