A typical African traditional festival. Here you are taken back into an era of by gone splendour and graciousness. Your senses will be heightened by sounds, smells and sights that only Africa can produce.
The setting is amongst two major historical sites in Victoria Falls. First is the railway station that saw the arrival of the maiden steam train on the 24th of April 1904. Second is the grand Victoria Falls Hotel, built for the purpose of accommodating engineers working on the famous Zambezi bridge.
After a warm greeting by senior Ndebele warriors, you are escorted into the dining site. Liveried waiters are ready to serve you our specially concocted hot spiced wine in winter, iced Amarula cocktail in summer, or drinks of your choice. Warm yourselves up around the many fire buckets – “mbawuras” in the local language, surrounding the eating area. Hand made African fabrics ,crockery and carvings, complimented by teak furniture and canvas dining chairs, will enchant even the most jaded of travellers. Ethnic snacks are set on the tables – matemba, mopani worms , ground nuts, for guests to try. The Zambezi marimba band begins to play, gently harmonising the start of the dinner.
Dinner is served at the open style buffet in the traditional way. Foods are all freshly prepared and stylishly presented. Game meat in various forms can be sampled ,hunters pot of the day is always recommended, and for the less adventurous, Zimbabwean vegetarian dishes will delight all.
After dessert, sit back relax and enjoy a show of traditional dancers to the beat of drums and haunting lyrics of songs that have been sung and performed over hundreds of years.
You will be sharing more than just our famous African hospitality you would share with us an experience never to be forgotten….
