The Best Wedding Venues in Victoria Falls

Bush Cuisine Wants Your Special Day to be Unforgettable

Bush Cuisine is a family owned and run company established in 1992. From the day of its inception, we have strived to become an ‘out of box’ and ‘wow’ operator. Our deep passion for people, bush and the wild is coupled with a craving to deliver the best dining experience.

We have an in-depth knowledge of the Victoria Falls region and a strong relationship with Zimbabwean and Zambian National Parks Boards. This allows us to offer you the most exceptional dinner, event and wedding venues in Victoria Falls.

Over time we have grown to offer the entirety of an event, tentage, lighting, dance floor, décor sound, laser show, and all the other smalls that are needed to make us a ‘one stop shop’. Furthermore in 2010 we were the first operators to introduce the now ever popular ‘Safari Dinner Cruise’ along the Zambezi River.

Here a list of our top ten wedding venues for the day you commit to a lifetime with your soulmate, a day you should remember for the rest of your life!

Zimbabwean Wedding Venues Near Victoria Falls

Zimbabwean people shower visitors with hospitality and warmth. The country also has the unique privilege of a 75% view of the Falls. This and the surrounding bush create an abundance of beautiful places to host your special day.

1. Zambezi National Park

Top of the list is the fantastic Zambezi National Park venue. A wedding here is remote and removed from any hustle and bustle. This is our wildest venue, situated eight kilometres from Victoria Falls town and deep in the bush.

The experience includes a sunset cruise to transport your guests to the venue. They will disembark to an African fairy-tale of candlelit tables and walkways accented by roaring fires.

Zambian Wedding Venues Near Victoria Falls

Originally called the Old Drift, Livingstone is the base for the Zambian wedding venues near Victoria Falls. Still filled with classic charm, Livingstone only had its first set of traffic lights installed in 2011. This quaint, quiet town is the perfect centre point for our favourite Zambian venues.

7. Batoka Gorge

Nothing says “location wedding” like our Batoka Gorge venue. Looking 110m down onto the ever-changing might of the Zambezi River this venue never fails to amaze. No artificial lighting can compare to the backdrop of the African sun setting directly behind your reception tent.
