“SPECIAL FAMILY FUN DAY- STEAM SAFARI LEISURE TRAIN”
The National Railways of Zimbabwe as part of its programme aimed at promoting tourism and family rail leisure travel, will be running a special Family Fun Day train in Harare, on Sunday 13 April 2014.
For the second time this year, the NRZ is again running another special steam train from Harare to Ruwa to cater for family entertainment on 13 April 2014. The train is scheduled to depart from Harare at 1000 hours to Ruwa. The train will stop on the way at Mabvuku to allow steam enthusiasts and family members to take pictures of this special train. Those intending to catch a ride on this memorable special train are expected to arrive at the Harare station at 0900 hours to facilitate booking confirmations.
The public may wish to know that this is an amazing experience of a life time not to be missed by leisure lovers, who will indeed enjoy the breath taking scenery along the way to Ruwa Country Club, on board the special Family leisure train that will be hauled by age defying steam locomotive, while re-kindling the memories of yesteryear with your family members and friends in an exclusive and unique style.
It is pertinent to mention that the NRZ is geared to provide efficient rail leisure steam safari trains, at a reasonable cost in order to cater for all classes of our society, from top business executives, leisure lovers and steam enthusiasts.
The rail leisure steam safari train service, which was also successfully run this year during the Valentine day, is popular with both local and overseas steam enthusiasts. More steam safari trains are earmarked to be run this year as a way of promoting and contributing towards tourism growth in Zimbabwe. It is hoped that the move will indeed boost the tourism industry in the country, since Zimbabwe is one of the remaining countries in the world, that still run and operate steam locomotives that are popular with international steam enthusiasts.
