SHEARWATER RESTAURANTS REV UP
POSTED 02 NOVEMBER 2015 / BY SHEARWATER VICTORIA FALLS / IN VICTORIA FALLS / TOURS & TRANSFERS
Shearwater Restaurants are already amongst the most popular places in town to have lunch or dinner, and our Helipad dinners have proved hugely popular, so the addition of 2 new dining experiences this year will enhance customer experiences even further.
- Lunch with Livingstone.
- Full Moon dinner
A Tour of the Falls is generally taken by most visitors on their first full day in the town – generally top of their list of things to do in Victoria Falls and certainly the most obvious of what to do in Victoria Falls.
For most a trip to this part of Africa is a once in a lifetime never to be repeated experience. If you are lucky enough to be visiting the greatest of all the 7 natural wonders of the world – don’t rush it, ensure you maximise your opportunity and take full advantage of this spectacular show of nature. Start by making some sensible decisions.
Arrange for a Guided Tour of the Falls. Nature has created this extraordinarily beautiful sight over millennia – don’t demean her by a quick rush around the pathways, with a been there, seen it ticked it off attitude. You can only appreciate its full glory if you have a proper insight into its creation, geology, geography, natural and contemporary history. Your Shearwater Guided Tour of the Falls will provide this, with plenty of colourful and humorous anecdotes besides.
Now that you have learned and understood so much, and most importantly stood and seen, watched and listened to this stupendous spectacle, don’t just let it all become a blur as you rush off to the next activity on your what to do in Victoria Falls priority list that has tried to whittle down the numerous variety of things to do in Victoria Falls.
Not least, a productive walk around the falls will take you an hour and a half, 3km – and in Rainforest steamy heat. DON’T head straight for the exit. Now is the time to sit down relax, have a nice cooling drink and reflect. The Rainforest Café is the absolutely perfect place to do it – right there at the end of your walk near the exit. Think about all you have seen, check your photos and film footage. Log onto the café wifi and facebook location – and get those incredible photos and footage out to all your friends and networks. As you do this in comfort, still within earshot of the pounding falls and with the cooling mists of spray that linger in the atmosphere, enjoy your fabulous lunch. A fitting 3 course delicious lunch prepared by our expert chefs – all part of your Lunch with Livingstone package.
That’s not the end of it though. As you delight in your fantastic lunch at one of the best restaurants in Victoria Falls, you also have a front row seat for the Livingstone presentation that is part of the Lunch with Livingstone activity. Be royally entertained by a theatrical first person presentation of the life and times of his extraordinary individual who did and gave so much for Africa.
The Lunch with Livingstone is truly the very best way on all levels to get the most out of a visit to the Falls, and given that seeing the falls is the number one of all things to do in Victoria Falls, and the star of the show of what to do in Victoria Falls, be sure to take advantage of it.
Of all the things to do in Victoria Falls some are more obvious than others. A tour around the falls at night might not be on everybodys wish list of what to do in Victoria Falls. However, it becomes an entirely different prospect when you get the unique opportunity to not only do so at full moon, but then enjoy a sumptuous dinner in the rainforest afterwards as well as a splendid Livingstone presentation spoken in the first person.
A full moon in Victoria Falls is a beautiful sight in its own right. With the skies normally totally cloud free, the entire sky is a starlit panoply of beauty and the complete globe of the moon is like a great big neon bulb lighting all below it in silvery tones. With such little light pollution even the simplest forms can look wondrous: a baobab tree, a hilltop etc.
Imagine just how seriously illustrious the Victoria Falls then can look at night, illuminated by the monochrome moon. The Falls look like pure fountains of molten mercury leaping into the gorge below, sending up plumes of ghostly clouds. Vision is hardly impaired at all the moon is so bright – everything is seen through in a totally different perspective. And of course there is exhilerating enigma of seeing an actual Moonbow – a lunar rainbow, a vision of priceless and delicate beauty.
Shearwater offer a world unique experience in this respect. An opportunity not only for a Guided lunar Tour of the Falls conducted with an entirely different aspect to a daytime tour, but also a rare opportunity to have dinner in the Rainforest on this most spellbinding and bewitching of occasions. An area of the Rainforest Café – inarguably one of the best restaurants in Victoria Falls, is dressed and decorated in an evocative style to inspire the thoughts of the life and times of Livingstone: a Rainforest Banquet ensues. A truly 3 course gourmet meal, followed by a captivating and theatrical presentation by ‘’Livingstone’’ himself.
Dinner is always on the list of what to do in Victoria Falls after nightfall, but a banquet at one of the 7 wonders of the world under a full moon is so esoteric that few would think it a possibility as a contender in what to do in Victoria Falls.
