Atmoshpheric experience as the place looks great. But I think it's out of it's element despite the good service and entertainment. They just don't have a good variety of game meat on offer. I was in another one (not a Carnivore) in Vic Falls in...More

As the name suggests, it is all about meat. The set menu gives you a wide variety of meats but if you want something different the al a carte section has a very limited menu, also service is very slow in this area.
