Chris with the 19th Century-styled Bamba Tram

The Bamba Tram is a truly unique way to experience the awe-inspiring beauty that is the natural wonder of Mosi-ao-Tunya – The Victoria Falls. Leaving from the Zimbabwean side of the Victoria Falls you traverse the bush on this gorgeous 19th century-styled open-sided tram, journeying to the Victoria Falls Bridge and back.

The open sides of the Bamba Tram are perfect for enjoying the spectacular views!

If you’re someone who cherishes the peace of dawn, the morning trip aboard the Bamba Tram is an absolute must. Picture this: as the first rays of sunlight pierce through the mist of the falls, you find yourself on the tram, mesmerised by the gentle rumble of its wheels and the chorus of bird song. The best part? The bridge, a marvel of engineering spanning the Batoka Gorge, is all yours to behold in its glory.

The Bamba Tram is a journey in itself—a leisurely glide through the bush that allows you to soak in the sights and sounds of this vibrant environment. Keep your eyes peeled, if you’re lucky you might catch a glimpse of the wildlife that calls this area home. From graceful impalas to majestic elephants, the possibilities are as boundless as the landscape stretching out before you.

But the adventure doesn’t end there. Upon reaching your destination of the Victoria Falls Bridge, a short walk takes you to a museum dedicated to the construction of the iconic bridge. Here, you can delve into the history and engineering behind this feat of human ingenuity.

As you traverse the viewpoints along the way, each offering its own breathtaking vista of the falls and the surrounding wilderness, you’ll find yourself reaching for your camera time and time again, eager to capture the sights that unfold before you.

Of course, no morning adventure is complete without a moment to pause, reflect, and savour the quietude with a hot drink and some rusks. Whether you prefer the warmth of coffee or a yummy hot chocolate, there’s something undeniably soothing about indulging in a sip of your favourite hot drink amidst nature’s splendour.

The Bamba Tram experience caters to all ages, making it the perfect outing for families, couples, and solo travelers alike. With a duration of about an hour and a half, it strikes the perfect balance between immersion and convenience, ensuring that you have ample time to connect with the surroundings without feeling rushed.

So, whether you’re drawn to the allure of a sunrise adventure or simply seek an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the Bamba Tram promises an unforgettable journey through the heart of Victoria Falls—a journey filled with serenity, wonder, and the timeless beauty of nature.
