Very classic train, lovely train ride through a few of the villages where the children run out and shout hello and run with the train ! Very nice food and viewing platform x

Can't review this trip more highly. Red carpet, butler with drinks on arrival,sumptuous 5 course meal (I'm vegetarian and it was great) , endless vino(!!), historian host gives interesting informal 'talk' on the area, travels to Zambia/Zimbabwe bridge border with opportunity to get off, take in the views and look at the engine ify ou want (for train enthusiasts!!)Superb finale to the holiday- not cheap but worth every penny.

Wonderful experience, trip & meal aboard this incredibly well restored & loved antique steam train. The entire experience was 5-Star. August 2013 with Jane Lee & Larry Winters of Town & Country Travel.

Wash off off the dust, put on your fancy dress/dress pants at the bottom of the backpack, and get into a F. Scott Fitzgerald mode. The Royal Livingstone Express will pull away from the station and whisk you into another time, when men were smoothly charming and women always slightly vampish. I loved the escape, the champagne, the white glove service, the gourmet food, the illusion.
