Dining around Victoria Falls
The cuisine of Zimbabwe is super tasty and the restaurants around Victoria Falls are fine for both adventurous and fussy eaters, meat-eaters and vegetarians alike. For those looking for some international cuisine, head to Shearwater Cafe, conveniently located in the center of town. Here you will find your standard pizza, pasta, and salads, made from fresh, local ingredients. This comfortable, yet modern establishment also offers breakfast and fresh local coffee from 8:00 am and free wifi for guests.
For a great selection of African dishes, head to local favorite, Mama Africa! Stop in for tasty, healthy and fresh stews, incredible veggie (Kudu) hotpots, and tasty starters. The staff are incredibly kind and are always happy to give a recommendation. Guests can enjoy fantastic live music here every evening.
Activities with children
The falls themselves are not accessible to young children, so it's extra-important that you can spend time doing something they can enjoy. Walk along the paths surrounding the Victoria Falls which are well signposted, so the kids can enjoy a sight of the falls, before heading to a local village, where inquisitive kids can marvel at the gorgeous, colorful architecture. You can visit the Crocodile Farm and see over 35,000 crocodiles in all stages of life, hold a baby croc, and explore the museum. Other kid-friendly activities at Victoria Falls that fall more into the adventure category include the Canopy Tour, the Bridge Slide Adventure and Crocodile Cage Diving, which are all completely safe but still sure to get the pulses racing.
Nightlife and going out
One of the first things people learn about Zimbabwe is fun and hospitable Zimbabweans are, and the area surrounding Victoria Falls is no different. Go out and meet some fellow vacationers at Buffalo Bar, a favorite amongst tourists for several years, with an outdoor terrace overlooking distant wildlife, and great drinks at reasonable prices. Three Monkeys is also a great option. It's a cocktail bar and restaurant set within a colonial railway carriage from 1935! For those with a taste for craft beer, try one of the breweries in town! Both Beerbab Brewpub and Brewery and The River Brewing Company are both slinging local craft beers alongside favorites. There are many bars and restaurants in the center of the town, but keep in mind that they do tend to close relatively early during the week.
Throughout the year, visitors can look forward to many exciting and interesting activities at Victoria Falls. The annual Vic Falls Carnival (formerly Falls Fest) takes place annually around the end of the year and is known to be an entertainment-packed New Year's celebration, with live music and performances from incredible local and regional bands, as well as musicians from across the border with Botswana and Zambia.
For fitness lovers, go for the Victoria Falls Marathon, where both national and international runners get together every July for this fun, flat, and beautiful annual race. Several cycle challenges, such as the Vic Falls MTB Challange and Zambezi Cycle Challenge take place every year and are great fun for competitive cyclists.
