It’s a truly magnificent sight that hits you; as you take those first few steps off a classic steam train onto the Victoria Falls Bridge. You’re above a vibrant rainbow, standing in the cool, gusting spray; and you look over the railings to find you’re over a hundred meters up in the air, staring out over a natural world wonder…
Welcome on board the Bushtracks Express
On board the Bushtracks Express you recognize the unmistakable, welcoming rhythm and vibration of the steam locomotive chugging ahead, pulling the vintage design carriages off one of the most iconic railway bridges ever built, and into the African bush

Discover the wonder of a luxury river boat experience
Bushtracks Africa, along with its luxurious steam-train safaris, has an impressive portfolio of products that include luxury river safaris that depart daily, taking you to the inner reaches of the upper Zambezi river. The Bushtracks River Safarisoperate with three boat options; The Victoria is the premium river safari where guests can glide downstream towards The Victoria Falls, whilst lounging in comfort. A chef from the Victoria Falls Hotel prepares sushi and other gourmet canapés, and on-board hosts & barmen serve beverages to enjoy whilst observing the rich birding and game viewing opportunities that are prolific underneath the magical spray. The Victoria bears the mark of exclusivity when it comes to river cruises in the region - it is jet propelled and specially designed to safely navigate the shallow waters just above the Falls.
The Cormorant and Darter are designed for safari comfort and practicality. Explore smaller channels closer to the Falls, and enjoy having the birdlife the wildlife all to yourselves. The principle of exploration is that you travel to places that seem untouchable. Places that beg to be seen, yet seem to be out of reach. However, every aspect of this beautiful patch of earth deserves its share of our appreciation, and using specially designed jet propellers the boats can take passengers into the very shallow water amongst the islands directly above the waterfall. Meandering between the islands gives you a glimpse of the ‘Smoke That Thunders’, before and after it has rumbled over the edge of the Victoria Falls.
Don't forget to go on a game drive
They also operate a sizable fleet of safe and comfortable transfer and game-viewing vehicles, and run a cohesive, international team of experienced guides and consultants that span across the three countries of Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana.
