Shopping in Victoria Falls

Shopping in Victoria Falls is not about your normal high street chain store, those kind of shops are just not there.

This is a small town, focused primarily as one would expect, on tourists. So there is an array curios shops, arts and crafts, galleries and little boutiques and tasty restaurants.

There are plenty of hotels and in each of these hotels there is normally a couple of curio shops, these shops are invariably quite pricey. So it's a good idea to have a stroll around the town to see what else is on offer.

From one end of town to the other is no more than one Kilometre so it is very easy within a short walk to have covered the whole of the town centre.

Elephant's Walk

Close to Ilala Lodge, The Kingdom Hotel and Victoria Falls Hotel are the banks, the post office and Air Zimbabwe, just behind this is great little shopping centre called Elephant's Walk, just click on this link to find out more about all the shops.

Elephant's walk is also very close to the large outdoor curio market, where you will be stunned by the sheer volume of wood carvings, stone sculptures and other forms of exceptionally good art from some very talented artists. The Jafuta Heritage Centre is a small museum found there with a private collection of material cultural and visual Zimbabwean artefacts.

Landela Centre

The Landela centre which is close to the railway line on Livingstone way also has several boutiques, curio shops, cafe's and booking agents.  A word of warning there is a shop called the "Victoria Falls Gallery" which has had many reports of not shipping items that have been paid for click here to read reports. Further up Livingstone Way is a TM supermarket. Although nothing like supermarkets in the first world, you are still able to get all that you need there or in the other supermarket mentioned below.

Phumula Centre

The Phumula centre on Park Way is the third shopping centre. Here there is a large well stocked OK supermarket located behind the Shearwater booking office.
