Fodor's Review

Walking the long stretch of red carpet alongside Locomotive 156 while it blows steam and rumbles in preparation for the journey is undeniably exciting and romantic. Dinner guests are seated in either the Wembley or Chesterfield dining carriage (both exquisitely restored) while the historic steam train pulls you through a bustling, charming, shanty town, over the Sinde River Bridge, and then back through Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park at sunset, or on Wednesday and Saturday

the train stops to watch the sunset on the magnificent Victoria Falls Bridge. The gourmet dinner is beautifully presented and meticulously prepared, offering guests no fewer than five set courses (special dietary requests can be catered to with advance notice). And yes, the train gives right-of-way to giraffes, elephants, and any other plains game who might decide to cross the tracks during dinner! Dress code is "smart casual." No shorts are allowed.
