Explorers

Explorers is more of a bar than a restaurant but it does serve meals such as burgers, pies and chips, and is a must for any night out in Vic Falls. The atmosphere at Explorers is very laid-back and entertaining - this is where all the rafters meet up after a day on the rapids to drink ice-cold beer, make new friends and listen to cheesy tunes with their buddies.

Address: Sopers Arcade, Livingstone Way
