Tram Trips

The Bamba Tram is an exquisite train ride, described as one of the most beautiful tram rides in the world. Tram Trips Victoria Falls takes you on a unique game drive on the rail. The morning Victoria Falls Tours take you to the iconic Victoria Falls Bridge and the Livingstone Museum as well as the knife edge. The afternoon ride will go deep into the bush to the Jafuta area.

The operators of the hop-on hop-off Bamba Bus took over the operation after the previous Tram Trips were discontinued, and they launched the Bamba Tram in April 2022. They have made a few additional options for you to choose from in addition to the conventional bridge runs.
