Kariba is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Zimbabwe. It's about 5 hours drive from Harare and can be rather stressful due to the condition or lack thereof the roads. The Lions Den offers a semi midway break to relax and destress with an excellent choice of bread rolls. Egg and bacon, chicken, fillet steak, and hamburgers. All... More

Stopped here on the road to Kariba. The restaurant is attached to a butchery with outdoor seating in the gardens. Ordered the 'boerewors' roll. It was well cooked, but on the small side. The roll was fresh. Overall it was OK, but on the pricey side (relative to Harare and South African prices). Bought some biltong, which was good.

Sue's kitchen steak burger is in a class of its own! It is the main reason for stop over whether on way to Kariba or Mhangura. Tender beef fillet is grilled and put on roll. Customers season to taste with sauces of choice. Next to kitchen is Lions Den Butchery with fresh steaks and biltong.

Lion's den is a pleasant surprise on the way from Harare to Kariba. The whole family enjoys the sandwiches. The steaks are perfect.

This place is great. The biltong is excellent. The burgers are unreal. You can't go wrong. And it's beautiful, with polished wood all over the shop. And the customer service is superb. It's a must stop on the way up North from Harare. Just 15 minutes past Chinhoyi on the right.

Stop on the way to the north of Zimbabwe, rush in a get the best fillet steak rolls with sauces too many to know which one to choose. In a delightful setting of cool shady trees just off the main road. Good value for money and great biltong to buy to eat on the road.

A must when driving between Harare and Kariba! Such a great place to stop for a late morning or lunchtime treat in a quiet, garden-style setting.

If you want decent size meat in your bun, fresh from the butchers cooked right in front of you look no further. There's not much else for miles either, so make sure you stop. Aside from the food, they have some really interesting home made furniture. I managed to pick up a wooden chopping board but it's too nice to... More
