The Dinner Train

(Retrospective post)

The final event on our Southern Africa journey was the Royal Livingstone Dinner Train at the Victoria Falls.

The train conveys guests to the bridge over the Victoria Falls. Stopping midway on the bridge the train is at the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. Guests can disembark during the short stop for photos and for those brave enough to face the forceful craft sellers. You can also step gingerly, if somewhat unofficially, onto Zimbabwe territory; ie their half of the bridge. After that short stay the train backs back more deeply into Zambia and onto a siding whilst a five courses dinner is served.

Some photos from our visit.

  1. Dual gauge tracks or bridge derailing protection rails.

  2. Different eyes are drawn to different issues!

  3. You must also check out for their wide range of Hotels,Flights and cruises. They do offer the lowest prices.
