This terrace is in the back of the Victoria Falls Hotel and it affords a view of the river gorge and the mist from the falls which are just a stone's throw away. The food was good and one can be very leisurely on a sunny day.

What a great place for a formal afternoon tea. It was lovely. The best cup of tea I had during our entire visit in Zim. Wonderful location and views. Nice sandwiches. It was just so nice after hectic tours to sit and relax. Will definitely return on my next visit. Highly recommended.

We sat on the Victoria Falls Hotel veranda for cocktails and dinner on a Saturday night in July 2014. Even though it was labeled as the smoking area, no one was smoking. The specialty drinks (the Livingstone and the Mary Pickford are highly recommended) and view of the falls were quite nice. However, the ostrich steak was overcooked. The crocodile marinara was tough and served with room-temperature pasta. Service was slow. Stick with the cocktails and view is our advice.

The Buffet breakfasts and dinners were fantastic and the local dancer and singers at night capped off the day

We experienced our first high tea in Africa of all places and loved it. We had free refills of tea and the sandwiches and cakes were delicious. The setting was perfect, overlooking the falls. Only criticisms is to have more selections of tea which are local, not Twinnings!
