Hotel Restaurants in Victoria Falls
When the sun goes down there is no shortage of ways to fill your time, from special dinners to adventurous outings.
On Zimbabwe’s side of the Falls, perched 120 metres above the rapids of the Batoka Gorge and just downriver of the Victoria Falls Bridge, is the newly opened The Lookout Café. Operated by Wild Horizons, the Café is adjacent to its high-wire facility, where it offers adrenalin-fuelled activities such as the Gorge Swing, Flying Fox and the Vic Falls Canopy Tour. During full moon, the Café offers special dinners, where guests can enjoy views of the Falls and the bridge, lit by the light of the moon. It can accommodate groups of up to 60 guests and the list of Full Moon Dinner dates can be viewed on its website. - See more at:
Dinner river cruises
Enjoying sundowners on the Zambezi is widely regarding as one of the ‘must-do’ activities when visiting the Victoria Falls. Guests are likely to see wildlife on the banks of the river, including elephant and various antelope, along with plentiful birdlife, as well as crocodile and hippo in the river itself. There are several operators, departing from both the Zambian and the Zimbabwe side of the Falls, with vessels that offer dinner cruises, providing guests with the opportunity to stay on the water after the sun has gone down. These vary in terms of capacity as well as luxury. Safari par Excellence, based on the Zambian side, has two boats that offer dinner cruises – the Makumbi, with space for 100 guests and the smaller Mambushi, with space for 23 guests. Both serve freshly baked snacks, a light dinner and local beverages, spirits and wine. Based on the Zimbabwe side, the Zambezi Explorer Cruise Company also has two vessels that operate dinner cruises, Zambezi Explorer with capacity for 150 passengers across three decks (booked on an exclusive-basis for dinner cruises), and Zambezi Reflections, which has capacity for 34 passengers and serves gourmet-style meals. - See more at:
Night game drives
The Victoria Falls is near a number of small reserves and national parks, including the Zambezi National Park and the Stanley and Livingstone Private Game Reserve, both in Zimbabwe. These parks have granted operators special night-time access, as both are normally off-limits to tourists outside daylight hours. Shearwater Adventures offers a rhino encounter game drive, including a night drive and bush dinner. The experience starts before the sun goes down so that guests can see the wildlife that gather at Nakavango Dam to drink, followed by a night drive through the park. The vehicle then returns to the reserve’s reception area, where guests will enjoy dinner under the stars. Wild Horizons offers a ‘Night Eyes’ safari in Zambezi National Park, which enters the park in the late afternoon and continues into the night. Refreshments are served on the banks of the Zambezi.
Dinner at The Boma
The Boma, on the Zimbabwean side of the Falls, specialises in creating traditional Zimbabwean dishes. Guests are served a four-course meal comprising starters, soup (prepared on the campfire), and a barbecue buffet with a selection of salads, followed by a choice of desserts. The restaurant caters well for those with an adventurous palate, with its trademark dish being warthog fillet. Other delicacies include mopani worms, smoked crocodile tail, impala knuckle terrine and game stews. It also serves more traditional fare, including beef, pork, fish, chicken and a variety of vegetarian meals. Entertainment comes in the form of traditional dancing, story-telling, a fortune teller and an African drumming circle. The Boma can seat 300 people in the dry season (April to October) and 230 in the rainy season (November to March). It is recommended that you book in advance
Live music at Mama Africa Eating House
Situated on the Zimbabwean side, Mama Africa Eating House offers a traditional ‘township-style’ restaurant environment, featuring brightly decorated rooms and food from across Africa. Mama’s Hot Pots are the restaurant’s signature dishes, and options include Umhwabha ledobi, an Ndebele-dish of dried meat and peanut butter sauce, and Hunter’s Pot, a game stew. The menu also features a selection of grilled meat, including Zimbabwean rump steak, grilled Zambezi bream and Mozambique-style peri-peri chicken.
