Victoria Falls Hotel Zimbabwe

The Victoria Falls Tram and Bridge Champagne Sunset

The building of Victoria Falls bridge marked the rise of Victoria Falls as a tourist destination. The Victoria Falls Tram Bridge and Sunset Tour is a celebration of the rail travel of a bygone romantic era which saw the birth of The Victoria Falls Hotel.

·

The Sunset Tour begins with a stroll down the red carpet path which links theVictoria Falls Hotel to the train platform at Victoria Falls Station.

· After refreshments, the 19th century-style tram begins its gentle twenty minute meander through the vibrant town of Victoria Falls, looping through classic African bush often habituated by wildlife and passing the Victoria Falls Rainforest. Its final destination is right in the middle of the Victoria Falls Bridge which straddles the line dividing Zimbabwe and Zambia.  The historic Victoria Falls Bridge is suspended 111 metres above the Zambezi River and affords spectacular views directly onto the face of the falls themselves.
·
Upon arriving at the Victoria Falls Bridge, passengers disembark the tram to watch a thrilling demonstration of stunt jumping by the Bungee Flying Squad before being invited to the Bridge Information Centre for champagne refreshment and a short, theatrical presentation on the history of the bridge.
·
Guests will then have time to relax and celebrate a magnificent African sunset overlooking the Zambezi Gorge and the Victoria Falls while enjoying an ice cold beer or glass of wine from the Bridge Cafe.
·
Further demonstration Bungee, Swing and Slide activities will be performed by the crew and those with a thirst for extra adventure will be welcome to try one of the high adrenalin jumps or a gentler child-friendly slide (Price not included in the Tram Tour).

·   

As the fading rays of the sun drop below the horizon, a toot-toot from the tram driver will signal time to begin the return journey home to Victoria Falls Station marking the end of yet another splendid African day!
