Planned Itinerary:


4:00 pm - Guests will be picked up from the Royal Livingstone and (for other Lodges time may vary) in Luxury Bushtracks Vehicles and given a short road transfer to the Bushtracks Siding, formerly the Old Mulobezi Railway Offices or otherwise known as Kilometre ‘0’ of the Mulobezi Line.  A safety brief will be given by the Bushtracks guide en route to the station.  Tickets will be issued to all guests that include an indemnity on the reverse. On arrival the train will be stationed at the siding with the locomotive ‘in Steam’ thus giving a photographic opportunity to anyone who wishes.  Guests will board the train through the Lounge Car where drinks and snacks will be offered.


The train will travel on the “Cape to Cairo” mainline which will then take it to the Victoria Falls Bridge. Once on the mainline the train leaves the outskirts of Livingstone and travels into The Victoria Falls World Heritage Site. Game such as elephant and antelope are often spotted en route to the border post

 The train will stop on the bridge for approximately 20 minutes and guests will have a chance to disembark from the train at this point.

A five course set dinner will be served at the Palm Grove siding before heading back to the Bushtracks siding.


8:30 pm - The train will draw into the Bushtracks Siding.  A Bushtracks guide will be waiting to transfer guests back to the hotel.
