This bridge it the link between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It was build by Rhodes who wanted it in this exact place to show the passengers the view of the waterfalls of Victoria, located few meters at left. Cecil Rhodes had a plan to take this railway from Cape Town to Cairo.
Nowadays this tourist train take visitors to this point where some people practice bungee jumping.
Here I was in Zimbabwe but most we can see here are in Zambia.
Esta ponte liga Zimbabue à Zâmbia, foi mandada erguer por Rhodes, que desejava que os visitantes se impressionassem com a vista das cataratas, localizdas poucos metros à esquerda.Cecil Rhodes tinha umn plano de estender esta ferrovia ligando a Cidade do Cabo ao Cairo.
Atualmente os turistas chegam até esta ponte neste velho trem e algums saltam de bungee jumping.
Eu estava no território de Zimbábue, porém a maior parte do que se vê aqui fica em Zâmbia.

Hi Jorge. i remember seeing this bridge from a greater distance from the Zambian side. You got quite close and gave us a very nice POV.I can see a person dangling on a rope all the way down. Regards. Klaudio.

At first sight it looks charming and lovely train for me, because it looks old. Lovely shot of the train passing over the bridge. Good sharpness and exposure. As well. Thanks

I'm so glad that mr. Rhodes decided to route the railway through this magnificient place. And great to see the stylish train with classic Garratt locomotive on the bridge. I wish that bigger branch was closer to the right edge and that tiny branch is unfortunately on exactly wrong place.

The bridge is very classy and so is the train on it. Congratulations on the DOF in spite of the vine in the f/g.
