Embark on a Timeless Journey with the new Trams at Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

On the other side if the gorge, we are getting excited about two new products in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.
Steeped in history, the Victoria Falls Tram Bridge Tours are a unique journey into the adventure and romance of a bygone age. Both morning and sunset tours begin with a stroll down the red carpet path which links the iconic, 108-year old Victoria Falls Hotel to the train platform at Victoria Falls Station. The 19th century-style tram begins its gentle, twenty minute meander through the vibrant town of Victoria Falls. Its final destination is right in the middle of the Victoria Falls Bridge which straddles the line dividing Zimbabwe and Zambia. This historic bridge affords spectacular views directly onto the face of the falls themselves.
The tram seats approximately 32 passengers on eight comfortable benches.

The two optional tours are - “Victoria Falls Tram Morning Bridge Tour” & the “Victoria Falls Tram Champagne Sunset Bridge Tour”
1. The Victoria Falls Tram Morning Bridge Tour
Once on the bridge, passengers disembark for a full Historic Bridge Tour – packed with humour, drama and plenty of facts, this theatrical performance includes a walk under Victoria Falls Bridge and ends at the Bridge Information Centre.
Passengers will be offered the chance to do a Bungee Jump, Bridge Swing and Bridge Slide or can watch all the drama from the Bridge Cafe.
Departs – 10h00
Returns to Victoria Falls Station – approx. 12h30
2. The Victoria Falls Tram & Bridge Champagne Sunset Tour
On arrival on the bridge, passengers disembark to watch a thrilling demonstration of stunt jumping by the Bungee Flying Squad.
Guests will then have time to relax, and absorb and celebrate a magnificent African sunset overlooking the gorges and the falls – an opportune time for an ice cold beer or glass of wine.
Departs – 16h45
Returns to Victoria Falls Station – approx. 18h45
