This Place is the right Place to enjoy the african Cuisine in a typical atmosphere. The Food is very good and the Service too. Live Music give this Place the little extra. We will recommend this Restaurant to all which come to Victoria Falls.

This is slightly off the main road, and thus a bit quieter of a spot to eat. The food was average, the service ok, nothing spectacular, but perfectly acceptable.

We decided to experiment the native food and the restaurant was highly recommended. The waiter who served us was courteous and knowledgeable not only of the menu but also the culture of the people. He recommended what we should try and we were impressed. We...More
