When you are in Victoria Falls

For something extraordinary to do while staying at Victoria Falls, consider catching the Bushtracks Express. This is a step back in time as you board the steam train and travel out on to the famous bridge that links Zimbabwe to Zambia.

The train stops on the bridge to allow you to enjoy a 5 course dinner as the sun sets and the African night closes in – with the sound of the Victoria Falls in the background. You will have time between courses to step off the train to take photos of the Batoka Gorge and the stunning scenery about. Around 9.30 the train steams back to the Zimbabwe station and a short walk or drive will have you back at your hotel.

The same company provides river safaris on the Zambezi above the Falls. As they use shallow drafted boats with jet propulsion you can venture closer to the Falls than any other boat can – quite safely. A wonderful way to see the African sundown with a chance of an elephant or two coming down to drink their sundowner at the same time.

Catch the new Inca Rail to Machu Picchu from either Cusco or Ollanta and experience the “extra” view now available. The carriage high, wide, domelike windows give you panoramic vistas as you climb towards this amazing World Heritage Site. The seats are roomy and comfortable, with device charging points and gourmet meals made from local produce are on offer.

 For even better views, make your way to the open air Observatory Lounge which offers fresh air as well as the very best of views on this iconic train journey.

For those who don’t know, Machu Picchu is an Incan citadel that is set high in the Andes Mountains in Peru, above the Urubamba River valley. It was built during the 15th century then later abandoned, it’s renowned for its sophisticated dry-stone walls that fuse huge blocks without any use of mortar, with intriguing buildings that play on astronomical alignments and panoramic views. Its exact former use still remains a mystery.
