    Best Show in Town!
    Simunye - a beautiful show in Victoria Fall town.  It introduces and brings energy to the audiences through their dances and storytelling.  Main characters are beautiful; their costumes and makeup give the audience insight into a character of the play. Set design, special effects, and soundtrack contribute to the great performance.  We love the show.  Should be more like this in town. Keep up the good work!

    Must do activity on one of your evenings during your stay in Vic Falls!!!
    This is such a great show and a refreshing addition to the evening activity offerings in Vic Falls. The African theme and story make it very appropriate and unique for Vic Falls. The actors and actresses are superb and their dances and costumes that are world class. We attended one of the first performances with our daughter who is 12 and she was transfixed too and thoroughly enjoyed the show. I have little doubt that as the show matures, it will get better and better!

    Fun, vibrant & energetic tribe meets tribe show - a must see!
    What an incredible fun, vibrant, energetic & spirited production show where tribe meets tribe – what can go wrong? Well love (and plenty of humor) makes an appearance. A robust show that teaches us the spirit of culture and love in the African land of Zimbabwe! The actors and actresses capture the audience’s full attention with the most outstanding dancing and performance. It is a perfect 1-hour show that fits in well between a sunset cruise and a dinner at your hotel. A must-see show!

    Very entertaining and captivating
    Really outstanding performance, costume and stage setting. Loved the fabric and light effects to imitate water. The elephant costume and walk was also well done and adds a nice touch to the show. The actors played their roles well especially the chief ekanjo, the actor made the character very believable. They were all good and really impressed!!! Well done to whoever made the costumes! Lots of thought and detail must have gone in to designing them. One note to the team - the sound of mamo was a little sharp to my ears. Perhaps not for everyone, but for my sensitive ears it will help to adjust the treble. To anyone in Vic falls, you should definitely go watch the Simonye show, you won’t be disappointed.
    Thanks for the detailed feedback! We're thrilled you enjoyed the performance, costumes, and stage setting, especially the fabric and light effects mimicking water. It's great to hear the elephant costume was a hit too. We'll definitely take your note about the sound into consideration. We appreciate your support and recommendation!

Attending the live Simunye theatre show was an exhilarating experience that left me utterly captivated. The performance seamlessly blended mesmerizing traditional dancing, soul-stirring music, and outstanding acting. Each moment was infused with vibrant energy and cultural richness, transporting the audience into a world of rhythm and storytelling. The choreography was flawless, showcasing the performers' skill and passion. The music, a perfect fusion of traditional beats and modern melodies, enhanced the emotional depth of the narrative. Overall, it was a brilliant showcase of African artistry that left a lasting impression.
