Had lunch at 'Mama Africa' - situated just off the main street through Vic Falls (to the right if walking towards the falls and prior to the railway). We had peanut spiced chicken hot pot and plain and peanut rice - really good to eat local food, couple of Zanbezi beers and a deliciously chocolate pudding (shared between us). Main meal was approx $10 each.

The whole concept is so good and has such potential. Such a pity that it took over 90 mins to receive our food. the drinks took forever too. The best part was that we were all in hysterics at the band - oh my word it was like a bad idols audition. As a South African I was ashamed by Mama Africa. What a pity

The decor, and live band lended to a perfect ambience. However, given how slow the service was, I almost gave up on my meal of peanut sauce with biltong. However, I heartily enjoyed the meal once it came. Perhaps the chef could go easy on the salt though

We came here for an early dinner so we didn't experience the music and the lively atmosphere other TA contributors have described.

I had the Lady fillet which was a tender and perfectly prepared steak. Unfortunately the fries were soggy and the vegetables not tasty.

Our waiter was helpful and friendly and all in all we had a good time at Mama Africa.
