Fantastic food and service, and lovely location overlooking the waterhole, with elephant and hyenas below. The music by our table was a highlight too.

We had both lunch and dinner. The food was very good and the atmosphere is great. The problem is the service. It was 30 minutes between ordering deserts and getting them. It was not that busy.More

Good day! Our guests can enjoy this breakfast included within their rate. However, if you are a walk in guest, it is $25 per head and is well worth it!

Description
Centuries past, we’re told, an inimitable Royal Drum disenchanted with its owner was lost forever when it ‘jumped’ into the Zambezi River. In honour of this legend, the award-winning Makuwa-Kuwa Restaurant celebrates the richness of Africa’s heritage with fine fare and unmatched hospitality. The MaKuwa-Kuwa drumbeat is a call to partake of a royal feast.Located in the award-winning Victoria Falls Safari Lodge's central hub is the Makuwa-Kuwa Resaurant - split level and with a 270º view of the unfenced Zambezi National Park, and focusing on a central waterhole attracting year-round wildlife, the a la carte restaurant offers a wide variety of internationally styled cuisine, with a hint of African and game dishes thrown in. Diners are tempted by gourmet dishes made from the choicest selection of local and imported ingredients, and Zimbabwe’s finest winelist. Little wonder then, that this restaurant lays unchallenged claim to Zimbabwe’s top eatery title year after year…
