What You Can Expect
Then, grab a drink and feast on a Zimbabwean banquet fit for a tribal king, enjoying four courses of mouthwatering buffet fare. The menu varies, but it often features treats such as campfire soup, game stews, salads and barbequed meat and vegetables. If you’re feeling adventurous, try some of the more obscure dishes; the Mopani worms are said to be a signature dish!
While you eat, revel in the entertainment taking place around you, seeing traditional Amakwezi dancers flitting between tables in time to beating music. Stories are recounted from the sangoma (storyteller), and a witch doctor is on hand if you decide you want your fortune read. Local artisans selling quality carvings and clothing also work the floor, and it’s a great opportunity to buy authentic, handmade souvenirs to take home. Your face can be painted and hair braided, if you wish, too!
After your meal comes the evening’s grand finale: the Zambezi drumbeat performance. Sit back and watch the experts on their bongo drums, or join in; the choice is yours, and there are enough drums for everyone!
Your evening then finishes with a hotel drop-off at Victoria Falls.
This may not be everyone's cuppa but my wife and I loved it. The assortment of food will cover every taste. The lamb on the open fire was the masterpiece but don't overlook the Warthog. It in my opinion, is better than beef. (Tender and flavorsome). The bongo drums (which everyone gets one) were fabulous but there were a few people not into it. All in all a fun night. Reality is, what else are you going to do with you evening if you don't come here? It's not exactly a thriving metropolis.
Good food and fun drumming session
