A restaurant with the views of a safari lodge
Beneath a knot of ebony trees on the grassy banks of the Zambezi is a site worthy of the smartest safari lodge. Instead, Mark Valentine from antique emporium Amatuli in Johannesburg has teamed up with Beks Ndlovu of African Bush Camps to create Zambezi House, the most exciting standalone restaurant in Victoria Falls. Warthogs graze on the lawns where tables and chairs are set up for plates of peri-peri rotisserie chicken and wood-fired pizzas topped with artichokes and olives. In the courtyard, a wooden deck wraps around trees strung with fairy lights and baskets overflow with jungly plants. Inside are pink velvet sofas, black-and-white photography by David Ballam and curious African artefacts, while upstairs in the shipping-container bar there’s craft beer and South African Chenin Blanc. And from here there are views of elephants feeding on the opposite bank and sounds of African fish eagles and grunting hippos.
