The legendary Victoria Falls carnival bush party has remained the most popular festive season event with thousands merry makers attending the event which marked the official start of the three day extravaganza.

Carnival enthusiasts got the party started with the tradition bush party which offers one an unforgettable night under the African sky.

With some dressed in traditional African fabrics the party-goers boarded the train for a journey through the bush to a secret location some kilometers from the Victoria Falls town.

DJs were on board to provide entertainment to the carnival enthusiasts.

Those in attendance hailed the organisers for a well-organised show and expressed confidence of an action-packed three days in the resort town which is known as Africa’s adventure capital.

Representative of the organisers Mr Blessing Munyenyiwa said the bush party attendance has been encouraging and assured the party-goers of an unforgettable experience during the three day extravaganza.

Day two of the festival will see the party-goers commencing the new year celebrations early with a community party to be held at Victoria Falls Primary School.

Multi-award winner Black Coffee and Micasa are set to headline the night.
