My first evening in Victoria Falls landed my friend and I at Zambezi House, at the suggestion of one of the locals. It was the best decision I made the whole trip as it set the tone for my entire holiday. We enjoyed our dinner outside near the cool Zambezi River bank, under the night sky. One touch that I had never seen at any restaurant I had ever dined at, was the provision of mosquito-repellent spray for their diners. I found that to be incredibly thoughtful. We had a good portion of ribs platter to share, including a quarter chicken with chips (that we also shared - because we couldn't decide on ONE meal!). We then spent the rest of the evening chatting away under the night sky, with the waiting staff patient & cordial the whole evening - giving us space and service in equal measures. By the time we planned to leave, as we walked through the restuarant, we were drawn in by the good music, suitable for a December evening jol. We ended up only leaving at closing time.
The rest of the holiday, a day couldn't pass without us dropping in for a coffee or a lunch meal. The staff is so open and helpful in telling you about the area and suggesting what you could do. I personally loved the atmosphere and the aethetics of the place. It has a unique architecture and every piece in the place, looks like it was well thought of before being placed.
Day & Night, the restaurant enchants you and you can feel the warmth of the people of Zimbabwe through each meal and interaction with the place. I could never get enough of the scenery that it provides.
The only time I found myself downcast is on my last day in Victoria Falls, with the thought that I can't take pack up the place into my suitcase back to South Africa with me. I'm yet to visit a place that drew me in the Zambezi House has.
If you are looking for a homey, vibey and eccentric place to keep coming back to daily while in Victoria Falls, make your way to Zambezi House.
