Victoria Falls is known for inspiring the senses – the beauty, majesty and adrenaline-fuelled activities of the Falls are indeed an awesome experience – what many people will be surprised to discover is that Victoria Falls offers a gastronomical treat as well. Tucked away in little nooks and crannies of the area, guests will be pleased to find really exquisite restaurants, where traditional and internationally acclaimed dishes tempt even the most discerning palate.
Since there are so many hotels and lodges in Victoria Falls there is a wide variety restaurants to choose from and some of them are truly world class. The Victoria Falls restaurants offer it all, from local dishes to more internationally recognised cuisine, everybody is catered for. The food and cuisine in Victoria Falls is influenced by both local and international dishes and flavours. The staple food of Zimbabwe is called ‘sadza’, and is a cornmeal based dish eaten with different relishes.
The hotel you are staying at, will of course have its own restaurant, but if you are staying there for more than a couple of days you might want to venture further a field. It’s also possible that the onsite restaurant is not to your liking. So it’s worth knowing what else is out there.
