This experience takes you back to the early 20th century. Embark on a journey across the Victoria Falls Bridge while comfortably seated on cushions and benches. With Victoria Falls in the background, the “Zug-Express” stops on the bridge to offer you a unique and unforgettable sunset. The locomotive “chugs” on and you enjoy a five-course menu.
