Historic Bridge Tour
Explore below the iconic Victoria Falls bridge and get an insight into Victorian engineering. The bridge was part of Cecil John Rhodes’ vision of a Cape to Cairo route, which unfortunately he never got to see. The construction of the bridge was completed in 1905. Constructed from steel, 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.
The expedition starts with an informative talk about the history of the bridge and then you will have to get into a full body harness and will get briefed on how to safely attach and detach yourselves to the safety cables when on the bridge.
