The Orient Express experience of Victoria Falls, this Steam Train Dinner activity "is an indulgent luxury fine dining experience going back in time to the age of romantic steam train travel". The Steam Train... A 1952 14a Class Locomotive 512 heads up the Club car, Dining car and Observation car, which have been beautifully restored by Rohan Vos of Rovos Rail. Well-trained staff, dressed in crisp white colonial attire, synonymous with the steam train era are ever attentive to passengers. The cuisine is simply superb. We think this Steam Train Trip will appeal to those who want to be spoilt with luxury, revel in nostalgia of a bygone era and see Victoria Falls in a completely unique way. The Dinner Run The old fashioned sunset steam train journey begins with a trip to the impressive Victoria Falls Bridge, a historical landmark that was completed in 1905 and the second most visited landmark in this area. You meet at the Victoria Falls Train Station (directly opposite the grand and colonial Victoria Falls Hotel) and board the train via the red carpet, setting the opulent tone, making you feel very important. Once everyone is aboard the old steam locomotive fires up and puffs its way along to the Victoria Falls Bridge. Relax in the luxury and comfort of the lounging car taking in the sights and sounds of Africa. Depending on how much game can be seen while in the park, the train should reach the bridge before sunset. The train stops on the Bridge and if you wish you can disembark and wander along on this historical landmark. If not... just stay on board and enjoy drinks and snacks, while feasting your eyes on the breathtaking vista in front of you. Cecil Rhodes whose vision it was to build the bridge, insisted that it be positioned so that passengers travelling in the train would feel the spray of the Victoria Falls falling on their faces. The waterfall is close... you can see and feel it. This is a sunset adventure with a difference.
