Elephant's Walk Shopping and Artist Village is a vibrant mix of local artists, retailers, artisan studios, all working within in the cool tropical garden courtyard. The funky Africa Cafe serves delicious light meals and drinks whilst the Nam Tok Restaurant upstairs offer afro asian traditional foods. There is a museum which shows the material and visual culture of the peoples of the region - entry is free. Crocodile Cage diving can be experienced, a visit with out local Nyanaga (witchdoctor) or you can just sit under the palm trees and watch the world go by!

We stumbled across the Elephant Walk while exploring the town center of Victoria Falls. I'm so glad we stopped. Whether you are shopping or browsing there is a lot to see. Most of it is reasonably priced and you can see the time each one...More

Set behind the Illala Lodge hotel the Elephant's Walk is a collection of small, and some not so small, kiosks selling all sorts of hand made ware. There is some sculpture, artists at work plus clothing and the Africa Cafe for a snack. No hassle...More

There are many different shops selling unique African art, jewellery, curios etc. There is also a restaurant in there. The good thing is that the vendors do not pressurize you to buy their goods.

Pleasant atmosphere and some good craftsmen. Gilt Sithole sits in a small booth on the right side and does great work in wire sculptures--look at his baobab trees for $15 to $20. There is another fellow doing more rustic animal figures using soft drink cans...More

This is a good craft market/co-op. The shuttle let us off at the tented area with all men sellers. They are quite polite and waiting patiently for you to enter "their" space...maybe only a blanket wide. But I did come close to being overwhelmed with...More
