After a long day exploring the Victoria Falls, we popped in for dinner. Luckily we didn't need a reservation and due to the pandemic, the place wasn't packed. Shongwe had a really nice ambience and what you see on their social media pages is what you get. The staff is extra nice and really helped us with the menu. I'm a ribs guy so it wasn't much of a problem. The ribs were made to perfect and l really enjoyed the home made chips. The drinks were also ice cold and the waiter kept them coming. The prices were very reasonable and the portions were generous. I am definitely coming back.

Shongwe exceeded all our expectations, what a beautiful place to stay in Vic Falls. The rooms are decorated beautifully with lots of Zimbabwean touches, very comfortable beds and everything you could possibly need is provided. The main area is charming with different areas to sit and chat and a well stocked bar to enjoy. Chef Jason cooked us a delicious dinner, the menu is extensive and we wish we could have tried more on it. Jamie was more than attentive to our needs as were all the other staff. Unfortunately we were only in the Falls for a night on our way from Hwange to Harare, but we would love to stay longer next time. We got up early to see the Falls, a great time of the day when it isn't too hot! The breakfast when we came back to Shongwe was absolutely delicious. Thank you to you all. I would highly recommend this stunning lodge.

We just returned from a 5 night stay at Shongwe and we loved everything about it! The rooms were spotless and the beds were very comfortable. Jamie and his staff are absolutely wonderful and took such good care of us. Shout out to Yolanda who we adored! The lookout is spectacular for drinks at sunset and the food at the restaurant was delicious. The breakfast that is included is ordered off of a full menu and included meals like eggs benedict and waffles. I would highly recommend Shongwe and hope to come back in the near future!
