Rainbow Tourism Group’s four-star A’Zambezi River Lodge restaurant — Amulonga — was recently awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2018.
Amulonga, meaning “by the river”, is on the banks of the Zambezi in Victoria Falls with breathtaking views of the river and its famous sunsets. This is the only restaurant in the resort town where guests get close to wild animals such as warthogs, hippos, elephants and antelopes, among others, which at times visit the lodge while dining.
The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner both buffet and a la carte menu. Beverages are available at the Zambezi Bar, which is located next to the restaurant. Guests can look forward to sampling and enjoying the Amulonga special crocodile and warthog meats.
With a seating capacity of 120 diners, Amulonga offers a scrumptious combination of modern Western cuisine, a wide selection of game meat, a few carefully selected unique African delicacies, vegetarian dishes, exciting culinary prowess and impeccable hospitality, the restaurant presents a truly captivating and memorable dining experience, which is complemented by traditional entertainment nightly during dinner.
“Congratulations! We are pleased to present Amulonga Restaurant at A’Zambezi River Lodge with a 2018 Certificate of Excellence. This certificate distinguishes your business from competitors and gives customers even more reason to choose you” read the statement from TripAdvisor management.
