Sweeping, manicured gardens lead down to a stunning vista of the railway bridge and the plume of spray rising from the mighty Falls.
Waking up to the sound of “the smoke that thunders”, seeing the sun rise beneath the mist of one of the seven natural wonders of the world - join us for a fully supported and guided bicycle trip, soaking up the history and ambience of Victoria Falls town. Or Rent A Bike and on the other side of the border, explore Livingstone town's local culture and history. Visit the Livingstone Museum - the oldest museum in Zambia, with interesting displays of David Livingstone memorabilia - and the bustling Maramba Market, which sells everything from vegetables and cooking pots to handcrafts and colourful fabric.
Cycle with us over the spectacular Victoria Falls Bridge (The bridge was the brainchild of Cecil Rhodes, who wanted the "spray of the falls over the train carriages", even though he never visited the falls and died before construction of the bridge began) to the finest hotel this side of the equator to witness the lunar rainbow of Mosi oa Tunya as she cascades into the dark valley below, a timeless experience to sherish.
Constructed from steel and completed in 1905, the bridge is 198 metres (650 ft) long, with a main arch spanning 156.50 metres (513.5 ft), at a height of 128 metres (420 ft) above the lower water mark of the river in the gorge below. It carries a road, railway and footway. The bridge is the only rail link between Zambia and Zimbabwe and one of only three road links between the two countries.
