We had been eating hotel, lodge and safari camp food for two weeks when we happened on the Africa Cafe for lunch. The Cafe is in the courtyard of the Elephant Mall, and we got the last table under a roof as it started to rain, then pour. The food was excellent and well-prepared, and was served beautifully by young Lorraine, whose smile and charm made us feel welcome as friends. We would go back often to the Africa Cafe but for the distance from home, and we're happy to have found it in the downpour.

We went here twice when we were staying Victoria Falls- once for food, another time just for drinks. The menu had a lot of good options. The service was really good- you may have to wait for a table, but its worth it. And if you look around enough, there could be a hidden table that you didn't see right away.

Being slightly hung-over, I must have missed a few good points but all in all it was worth it. Delicious burger and a bit of my friends succulent steak confirmed my suspicion that I was in the perfect café that day.
Neatly done milkshakes and lots of curios around to see while your order arrives.

We stumbled across this gorgeous little cafe while looking at curio shops at Victoria falls. The staff were so friendly, the food was absolutely delicious and very good value for money. We came back several times as the atmosphere was so nice. Highly recommend this place for breakfast/lunch as there isn't much on offer in terms of restaurants/cafés in Victoria falls

We had three meals at the Africa Cafe. We kept coming back because the food was so fresh, and cheap. Take the time to have a look at the wonderful herb garden out the back of the complex which they are striving to grow lovely fresh produce to serve at the cafe. The week before our visit they had had some elephants knock down the cement block fence and devour most of the lovely gardens, however, they struggle on. It is lovely to stroll around the shops while you wait for your meal. Staff are very friendly. There were 10 of us in our group and we all loved it, simple but nice.
