The Victoria Falls railway bridge is a marvel of Victorian engineering, built in the late nineteenth century. The railway runs from Capetown, South Africa to Lusaka, Zambia, with a stop at the town of Livingstone. Since the advent of modern road and air transport it's role is diminished, but trains use it regularly, and when trains are not running it is used for bungee jumping, which offers a spectacular leap 360 feet into the Zambesi River gorge.
