Steam Train Dinner Overview

The Livingstone Steam Train dinner is a fine dining experience unlike any other. Your journey begins when the Livingstone Steam Train,?which has been restored to its former glory, departs from the Bushtracks station where you will board the immaculate vintage first class Lounge carriage. The Steam Train travels through a World Heritage site to arrive at the Victoria Falls Bridge in time to watch the sunset. After stopping on the bridge for a brief period of time you then head towards the Palm Grove siding. Enjoy the sights of the African bush from the stately dining carriages. Enjoy a romantic silver service five-course dinner on board the Livingstone Steam Train. This is a journey into a timeless world of charm, elegance and romance, where the natural splendour will stir your imagination

The ambience of the dining carriage offers more than warm elegance. The sash windows allow for panoramic views of the passing scenery as experienced by the early 1900 visitors to the region.

One of the dining cars, The Wembley, was built by the Birmingham Railway Carriage and Wagon Company, and went on display in London at the British Empire Exhibition in 1924.
