Sunset in the Royal Livingstone Express luxury train. The Steam Locomotive, 156 is a 10th Class originally belonging to the Zambezi Sawmills Limited. It was used on the Mulobezi Line to pull logging carriages from the forests in Mulobezi to the railhead in Livingstone. David Shepherd, renowned wildlife artist, rescued the locomotive and partially renovated it, to its previous grandeur. He then donated it to National Heritage and Bushtracks has subsequently restored the locomotive to working order.  Bushtracks spent three years searching for carriages in order to operate this excursion. Rohan Vos of Rovos Rail South Africa, reputed to be 'the most luxurious train in the world', found five carriages which were purchased in December 2006. Rovos Rail also agreed to renovate the carriages to their former glory and work began on the 3rd January 2007. Experience the elegance of yesteryear from the comfort of your carriage whilst enjoying one of the most scenic railway journeys in Southern Africa. Experience the flora and fauna with panoramic views from the observation carriage.  This unique dining experience is offered three times a week, it includes the 6-course dinner, wine, beer and soft drinks. The luxurious train leaves the station at 17h45 and dinner is served at 19h00. Guests will be returned to the Royal Livingstone Hotel at 22h00.
