Make Tracks on a Luxury Train Trip in 2023

Ah, the romance of train travel ... even commuters feel it. There’s something oh so Alfred Hitchcock, Agatha Christie and Harry Potter about chugging down a track on the way to some wonderful — perhaps even mysterious — destination, your bag neatly tucked above you, a book in your lap, your journey ahead. The scenery outside passes by like a film in fast motion. The seats (comfortable on most global trains, even in second class) feel like super-plush movie theater lounge chairs. Each train car, like a narrow living room, boasts its own mood depending on fellow travelers and the ministrations of attentive staff.

Tap into the Wonder of Victoria Falls on an Awe-Inspiring Tour of Africa

For generations, locals have called Victoria Falls Mosi-oa-Tunya (“The Smoke That Thunders”) — not a surprising name at all considering most of us will see the waterfall’s massive mist and hear its all-encompassing rumble even before we catch sight of it. In season, its booming roar can be heard from miles away, its echo a kind of low vibration like the reverberating sound of a drum. Careening on the Zambia-Zimbabwe border, running from the rushing, mile-wide Zambezi River, Victoria Falls cascades from an astonishingly ample expanse, descending with such prodigious force (often clocked at 110 million gallons per minute), it propels a spray of rainbow-shimmering water high into the air, saturating the edge of the Falls — and all who stand near it. Most who gaze upon its beauty will stare hypnotized, often finding themselves soaked before they realize it.
