We had dinner here at about 4 PM.
We ordered 3 dishes, and got some nuts and popcorn for the wait, and that was a pleasent surprise, but I understand why they did it, 'cause it took a while before we got served. I ate the crocodile, which was fairly tasteless, with no sauce added.
The prices are not too bad, but the service wasn't great. I almost got served frozen beer, but the waiter always checked in front of my table (shaking the can) before I got it served.
OK food, OK price, OK restaurant

What a great restaurant! I booked via email from Cape Town for our first night in Victoria Falls and our table was ready and waiting with a special welcome. The atmosphere is fun and vibey with a great live band that played a brilliant rendition of Bob Marley. Loved the funky African themed décor! We had a very good meal and the menu is extensive, ranging from traditional African food to good old steak and chips. I'll be back!

We expected original African food but were disappointed that was not the case. The live band also played contemporary music,which was good, but not the atmosphere we were looking for. However, it was clean and full of tourists....

We were practically dragged into this place by the "Tourist Police". So we were a bit skeptical in the beginning, but pleasantly surprised. Sandwiches were decent, as was the slightly bland African food, with the local pap being much better than what you get in SA.

Service was good, the beer was cold, and the live music relaxing.

By no means a "cheap" place. Compared to prices (and quality) at the other eateries in Vic Falls, though, Mama Africa ranks right up there.
