Full description
Embark on an adventure and hop on a Steam Train that departs from The Victoria Falls Station, situated behind the Victoria Falls Hotel. Marvel at the hotel that was built in 1904 to accommodate the workers building the Cape to Cairo Railway Line and the Victoria Falls Bridge.  Be welcomed with a refreshing drink upon arrival to the station, a red carpet will lead guests to the train and the locomotive will be ‘in steam’: the perfect opportunity to take some great photos. Travel to the Victoria Falls Bridge on this luxurious steam train. Head out to the Jafuta Siding, serving light snacks, followed by a gourmet meal and drinks. Sit back and relax this unique fine dining, safari experience. Get the ultimate dinner experience, invoking the glorious age of steam and a view of the world-famous Victoria Falls at sunset. Followed by the rarity of a steam train safari through the African bush to Jafuta siding.  Savor a four-course gourmet dinner, prepared by the chefs of Victoria Falls Hotel. Drinks are included in the ticket price, with the exception of spirits and champagne. 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 sunset behind the Victoria falls before you make your way back to the station. After sunset, the train will depart the bridge for its journey back to Victoria Falls Station where it will refill with water before steaming out to Jafuta Siding. Stop at Jafuata Siding for about an hour before making its return journey to the Victoria Falls Station platform. Your train will return at the Victoria Falls Station Platform at approximately 9:45 PM.

This man is a con. The steam engine only goes on Sat and he sold me a ticket on Viator for a day when the steam engine was not even running. My Africa tour guide who lives in Victoria Falls said he is not very legitimate or even know to most of the tour guides in Victoria Falls. I was so excited to go on the train. He did not even bother to call and I had to call to find out he is not legit. Stay away from this tour.
