Had been on a three week Safari in Botswana and Zimbabwe. Not very good cafe facilities through out the safari and found The Africa Cafe. The best coffee in Africa. Very good quick, friendly and efficient.service.

Why thank you so much for recognising the training and passion that goes into our La Lucie coffee. Not many know that the the La Lucie coffee is considered one of the finest gourmet coffee in the world and it is home grown in the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe! Welcome back any time for a cup of coffee on us! More

Came across this authentic African cafe in the market of Victoria Falls town. Very reasonably priced and good selection of food and drink on the menu.

We had breakfast here and would definitely recommend The Africa Cafe to everyone. An African atmosphere with lovely staff and excellent food. The bowl of muesli with yoghurt, fresh fruit and honey was delicious.

Africa Cafe is a great location with funky African inspired decor and casual dining- think wraps, burgers, salads etc. The staff are friendly and always stop to chat and the chef often comes out to say hi. Great value for Vic Falls

I don't know what I had here, but it was quite good. Bread with a layer of cheese, layer of bacon, layer avocado, layer of fried eggs, topped with spinach, tomato, and onion. Very tasty!

We were here at the end of September and had heard about the Africa Café through reviews on tripadvisor. Thankfully someone mentioned the Amarula Milkshake. So, after shopping in the Elephant Walk Mall, we went to the café for a milkshake and a break. We placed our order and sat at a table in the shaded courtyard. Our milkshakes were... More

After an extremely wild 50th birthday party, The Africa Cafe was where we headed to for that all important breakfast! Big mugs of creamy capucchino coffee, fresh orange juice all in quiet and comfortable surroundings. I had Rens Breakfast.

Nice chilli beef wrap a local beer for me & Apple & pinapple smoothie for the wife and very helpful service from Shingie, especially when the wrap was ordered with fries & arrived with salad, fries then provided FOC. Worth a visit.

The price for a salmon wrap (with soggy lettuce and some sort of cheese spread) and the chicken burger was just too inundated with stuff and it ended up being a mess. My wife ended up deconstructing the sandwich and just eating the chicken. We then walked around the Elephant Marketplace.

A funky little restaurant, filled with great vibes, friendly people, chilled music, delicious food and ice cold drinks, this place has so many fun things happening all the time, we even have a Magic Far Away tree where the kids can sit under and enjoy their meal, while looking for all the hidden creatures. The Africa Cafe looks forward to your visit.
