A Little History Plus an Exciting Stroll on the Catwalks


    

The Victoria Falls Bridge, located in what is known as "No Man's Land", connects the cities of Livingstone, Zambia and Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe over the Zambezi River. During the construction of the bridge, Georges Imbault was the chief engineer. The bridge was actually prefabricated in England, shipped to Victoria Falls and then "assembled". Learn more of the history during a tour led by an Imbault impersonator before walking the catwalks used during bridge construction.

Social Media Description

I can't give enough kudos to the leader of our private tour of the Victoria Falls Bridge. His "performance" began with him playing the role of the chief engineer during the construction of the bridge nearly 120 years earlier. After our history lesson, we geared up with the required safety harnesses so that we could walk on the catwalks below the bridge traffic. (We weren't the only ones on the catwalks - check this reel out to see who we shared the walk with!)
