We were looking for a traditional lunch and this was the place. Delicious peanut butter rice and Zimbabwe hot pot, greens, sweet potatoes and lemonade or beer. Only wish we had gone back at night for the music.

We were walking on the main street of Vic Falls looking for a good restaurant and we just wandered inside this place on 21st May, afternoon for lunch. They had limited menu and we ordered two vegetarian dishes, but finally she supplied 2 plates of rice and veg curry! The curry was quite spicy and it was a real welcome... More

I really enjoyed the set up at Mama Africa’s. The menu had a few different choices beyond the standard local dishes such as curry. Live music enhanced the atmosphere. Visit the gift shop as there are some good value souvenirs of a decent quality on offer.

We had a goo dinner. We had Elephant steak, bream and Dried meat Ndebele style. All three dinners were very good with lovely vegetables. Good atmosphere with very nice music. Only negative comment id the coffee, not the best, but still recommend Mama Africa.

My husband and I had a really great experience at Mama Africa's Eating House. The food was really good and flavourful I had the sadza ndihuraye which is a traditional shona meal that came with beef. The me a in the stew could've been more tender and I didn't appreciate the cold butternut on my plate. My husband had the... More

This was a great little restaurant in Victoria Falls which we went to a few times while we were there. Always lovely friendly service and really good reasonably priced food. Great music some nights too.

If you are feeling adventurous and want to have good traditional Zimbabwean food then this is the place for your taste buds. Nice vibe live music band playing in the background adds to the ambient. i would highly recommend Huku nedovi (chicken in peanut butter) maybe i am slightly biased as i love my peanut butter. Overall very nice food.

I was tempted to try the Warthog Stew but ended up having the beef casserole. Very tasty! A variety of western style food as well. Suggest you may a booking as I was there at 6.30pm (and had booked) saw many being turned away without a reservation. There was a great band playing local music that started around 7pm. Very...
