Stimela is quite literally the word we use in Zimbabwe (and Zululand) for a train, it derives from the rhythm of the sound the old trains made.
Our Stimela Star is a private overnight sleeper train we hook up to the regular Victoria Falls to Bulawayo passenger train. Our Star will transport you in comfort and plenty of old fashioned style overnight from Vic Falls and you’ll awake rested and relaxed ready for your adventure in Hwange National Park.
On the Star you’ll enjoy refreshments and dinner, and then entertainment provided by our guides in the lounge car where you can enjoy coffee or an after dinner drink, before retiring to your private sleeping cabin, where you’ll be rocked to sleep in a way that is unique only to train travel.
In the morning, hot and cold breakfast and you’re off on the next leg of your adventure into Hwange!
