Escape on a late afternoon train journey amidst the untamed natural Zambian bushveld on the The Royal Livingstone
Express; a unique dining experience combining the luxury of the Royal Livingstone Hotel with the charm of rail travel.
The train is an all inclusive luxury rail experience rooted in the nostalgia of a bygone era. Passengers travel leisurely as the sun sets and enjoy dinner on the train.
The journey runs inside the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park parallel to the Zambezi River and guests have the opportunity to catch glimpses of white rhino, buffalo, elephant and other wildlife. The train leaves the Park over the Sinde River and comes to pause some 17 kilometres from Livingstone. By this time darkness would have descended on the Zambezi Valley and guests will be invited to dinner by the train manager in the dining cars.
The train will then slowly push back to the Sinde ‘run around’ to afford the locomotive driver a good view of any obstacles in his path for the return journey in darkness. The journey finishes at approximately 21h30.
This unique dining experience is offered every Wednesday and Saturday evenings.
