The pickup location for the Victoria Falls Bridge Tour is at the Day Activity Center at the Falls Resort (Royal Livingstone Hotel and Zambezi Sun Hotel). The magnificent Victoria Falls Bridge lies in “no man’s land” between Zambian and Zimbabwean border posts. The tour includes a Meet-and-Assist service whereby guests are assisted through the border procedures.
Please note: The guest will have to carry his/her passport to cross the respective border (Zimbabwe / Zambia). A visit to the Victoria Falls Bridge does not affect the clients’ visa status. Carrying of passports is merely for identification purposes at the respective border. Passports should not be stamped.
The Victoria Falls Bridge Tour begins with registration and signing of indemnity. Once the formalities are done, a guide walks visitors down to the Bridge Tour Viewing Deck where a presentation is given by a trained guide on the History of the Bridge. A guided walk around the Visitors Centre is done as the “visual” part of the tour where the guide shows travellers what was mentioned in the verbal presentation.
After the Visitors Centre walk is completed, there is an “optional” physical under the Bridge tour. This entails a briefing on the route, the safety and what to expect on the physical tour. Guests are then provided with the necessary safety equipment. Before proceeding to the bridge, a safety demonstration and safety training are provided to ensure guest safety.
Before departure, participants are given to opportunity to enjoy wandering around the shop or the Visitors Centre in their own time for approximately 30minutes before they are returned to their respective pick-up points. At present, 3 departures per day are offered, one early-morning (9h15), one-midday (12h15), and one mid-afternoon (15h15).
