Victoria Falls Bridge
Victoria Falls Tram Trip Begins The Zambezi Tram trip begins at the Victoria Falls Railway Station just opposite the Victoria Falls Hotel. Upon arrival, and check-in on the platform, you are served welcoming refreshments and finger snacks. You may help yourself to some of the freshly-made delicious baguettes, or pack your lunch for later. Once everyone has arrived, and after an introduction to your hosts and drivers, and safety briefing, it's time to board the tram. Once aboard the tram begins it's gentle 20 to 25-minute ride down to the Victoria Falls Bridge, the railway track does a wide sweep through the African bush and game of different types including elephant, bush buck and buffalo is often seen. The track continues past the Victoria Falls rainforest and at certain times of year you may now feel the cooling spray of the mighty Victoria Falls, this was exactly the intention of Cecil John Rhodes when he first conceptualised the Victoria Falls bridge in the early 1900's. Border proceedings are taken care of by the driver, and after a 5-minute stop, the tram continues onto the historic bridge which spans the impressive Batoka gorge. It is the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia and from here you get clear views of the Victoria Falls themselves. On the Bridge You may disembark the tram and take in the impressive scenery of the Victoria Falls, the gorge and the Zambezi River down below. Watch the adrenalin junkies take a leap off the bridge into the gorge via bridge swing or bungee, or zip across the gorge on the bridge slide. You will be taken by your bridge hosts to the small museum on the Zambian side of the Bridge for a humorous and entertaining presentation on the construction of the Victoria Falls Bridge. After the talk, you will are invited for more refreshments at a shaded private spot with a view of the bridge and the gorge.
