Alternative Dining

Combined dinner and activity options include a sunset and dinner cruise, which is very popular; as the name suggests, enjoy a Zambezi River sunset cruise but instead of coming in just after sunset, stay out on the cruise boat and get treated to a 3 course dinner – a splendid alternative to dining in a Victoria Falls restaurant. There is also the option of doing what’s called a night drive and bush dinner where you go on an evening game drive and then enjoy a specially prepared meal under the stars. Another dining experience is the Bamba Tram sunset safari with dinner under the stars, in the middle of the bush. Interested? let me action this for you.

Around Town, Dusty Road +263 776 778 225
Sarah Lilford founded Dusty Road, a Zimbabwean catering company, in 1998. From day one, it epitomised Sarah’s passion for fresh, seasonal food and her sunny, affable personality shone through as she produced a pantry range of pickles, preserves, jams, chutneys, oils, vinegars and confectionary. After having studied cookery overseas, Sarah travelled around the world and initially, her food reflected vastly different gastronomic influences: Asian, Mediterranean, south American and European, and she honed her skills working in bucket-list places: a ski resort in Switzerland, a yacht in the Mediterranean, Australian cattle stations and Kiwi farms, Scottish hunting lodges and African luxury tented camps. She blended those flavours with her own flair which stemmed from her upbringing on a Zimbabwean commercial farm, and revealed a unique take on food which proved vastly popular with those from all walks of life.
