Rainbows are cool. But what trumps rainbows? Moonbows. If you visit Victoria Falls during a full moon, the light of the moon through the the waterfall spray produces a lunar rainbow, or moonbow. More of a daredevil? Then try what’s been called the world’s best white-water rafting.

Described as an unforgettable African experience infused with Zimbabwean cuisine, spirited Performances and traditional storytelling, The Boma - Dinner & Drum Show has firmly established itself as a Victoria Falls highlight.Partially open to the skies, The Boma specialises in a superb selection of Zimbabwean dishes. A four-course meal combines a choice of starters with a barbecue buffet. The adventurous are enticed with local delicacies such as mopani worms and potjiekos (hunter's game stew), whilst those wishing to enjoy beef, pork, fish and chicken or a variety of vegetarian meals are welcome to do so.The sights and sounds of the evening are accentuated by a feast of nightly entertainment, incorporating traditional dancers, who captivate guests with their vibrant songs and dance. The acclaimed Zambezi Drumbeat provides a wonderful interactive drumming experience.
This was a fun dinner and drum show for tourists to the area. There's an expansive array of local food to sample buffet style. You are given a traditional African fabric wrap upon entering.

We enjoyed our dinner here with a large group. Service was exceptional as was the food. There was lovely piano music through dinner and the setting was very elegant too. It felt very upscale and we had a very memorable evening dinner there.

In-Da-Belly offers a taste of Africa and dishes up authentic, affordable Zimbabwean food 7 days a week, breakfast through dinner. We are located in a quiet oasis at the bottom of Rest Camp, in the very heart of Victoria Falls town. Besides our delicious and colourful African cuisine, we also offer free secure parking, Wi-Fi and a large crystal-clear pool to cool off in. Perfect for families, groups and solo travellers, In-Da-Belly is the place for you.
We were pleased to be recommended "In Da Belly" as it provides a wide ranging and interesting menu at prices that encourage one to go often.
Surprisingly it does not seem to attract as many people as it deserves, perhaps because it is slightly away from the main drag but more likely because it is constantly improving and the word has not got round yet. Whatever, this is a good place without any pretensions. The proprietor is delightful and very helpful and so are the staff.

Has a great view of the Vic Falls bridge and a great lunch menu. Has a high tea service from about 2pm which has to be booked. Great service from the staff, prices in US dollars and a bit pricey on the wines.

Centuries past, we’re told, an inimitable Royal Drum disenchanted with its owner was lost forever when it ‘jumped’ into the Zambezi River. In honour of this legend, the award-winning Makuwa-Kuwa Restaurant celebrates the richness of Africa’s heritage with fine fare and unmatched hospitality. The MaKuwa-Kuwa drumbeat is a call to partake of a royal feast.Located in the award-winning Victoria Falls Safari Lodge's central hub is the Makuwa-Kuwa Resaurant - split level and with a 270º view of the unfenced Zambezi National Park, and focusing on a central waterhole attracting year-round wildlife, the a la carte restaurant offers a wide variety of internationally styled cuisine, with a hint of African and game dishes thrown in. Diners are tempted by gourmet dishes made from the choicest selection of local and imported ingredients, and Zimbabwe’s finest winelist. Little wonder then, that this restaurant lays unchallenged claim to Zimbabwe’s top eatery title year after year…
As we were staying at the Safari lodge club we had a reservation for dinner and were given a 'window' seat. It is actually all open sided but the prime seats along the edge overlook the area where they feed the vultures in the day so the hyena come to see what may be left. You also get a view of the floodlit waterhole.
The trouble is they get this mad rush of Reservations and others at 1900 when they open and it is chaotic as the place fills. If you want to eat here I suggest you go along later after this first 'sitting' has cleared out and your service will be better.
Due to the volume of diners at once service was haphazard, if you hadn't quite made up your mind when they came to take your order you were at the back of the queue again. The food was Ok but not more than that.
We did try a lunch another day and that was so bad I sent mine back and refused to pay.
If you happen to be staying in the Club part just eat there as the food is so much better and service excellent

The perfect stop after a long, yet awe inspiring walk through the World Heritage Site.The Rainforest Cafe situated at the heart of the Victoria Falls Rainforest, offers sumptuous food, cool shade among the lush vegetation of this unique eco-system and a chance to relax before continuing onto your next adventure.Whether enjoying a delicious meal and much needed cold drink or simply sampling the divine coffee and heavenly homemade cakes, the powerful roar of this most majestic of Waterfalls in the background enhances the ambiance of a tasty meal in a wonderful setting.Adjacent to the Cafe is the Interpretive Centre with information boards containing facts on the mighty Victoria Falls. There is also a lovely shop where visitors can purchase small gifts to remember their remarkable experience to the Victoria Falls.Groups are welcome and can book in advance. Those clients who merely wish to visit the restaurant or shop without proceeding to view the Falls will not be charged park fees.
We visited the Falls in the morning, so were ready for a refreshment and light lunch. Rain forest cafe is perfectly situated. The "misters" kept the whole place pleasantly cool The menu was varied and reasonably priced. Staff were very friendly and efficient. We ordered...MoreLovely review, many thanks Kent.

A funky little restaurant, filled with great vibes, friendly people, chilled music, delicious food and ice cold drinks, this place has so many fun things happening all the time, we even have a Magic Far Away tree where the kids can sit under and enjoy their meal, while looking for all the hidden creatures. The Africa Cafe looks forward to your visit.

Open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner, Nam Took is an Asian Restaurantin central Victoria Falls adding to the cosmopolitan cheerful buzz of tourists and locals who will be quick and eager to recommend this great restaurant. Located just 800m from The Falls, Nam Took is situated upstairs under a welcoming, cool and high thatch roof looking out over riverine bushveld and beyond,out to the Victoria Falls Spray rising up into sky. The restaurant serves authentic Asian and all dishes including are cooked to order. Chef's recommendations to diners include daily specials but the spring rolls and spicy Tom Yum Prawn Soup are firm local favourites.
We love Thai food, we were a bit sceptical about eating here! We didn’t expect Thai food in Zimbabwe.
Located upstairs in the Elephant Walk shopping arcade. Colourful decor in a lovely location.
The service was very attentive and we were very pleased to hear the owner and chefs were Thai. We ordered a chicken green curry and a beef red curry. Both were delicious and tasted very authentic, with some of the traditional vegetables substituted for what is available in Zimbabwe. We then shared banana fritters which were delicious.
Portions are very generous and we were very impressed.
Definitely worth a try. They also have a Chinese menu on offer.
