The colorful atmosphere in the heart of the township

Deep in the heart of the Chinotimba township (about 2kms from Vic Falls town center) is a dining experience like no other. Dusty Road is located in the buzzing township and aims to introduce the international tourist to a bit of traditional cuisine and atmosphere.

You really should give this a try, but to get there, you will need to take a taxi, as they do not provide transfers.

On arrival, you will see a big sign and a few peculiar trinkets illustrative of the African, certainly Zimbabwean, way of life. Through the gate, you are greeted with a very colorful blend of everyday objects – black pots, hand-made brazier, chickens, traffic signs, dishes, etc. Walking further in and through to the reception area, there are lots of colors and old household items to brighten your senses and bring feelings of nostalgia for the good old days.

Up-cycled material in all areas of the restaurant

The tables are set under welcome shade from the trees. The furniture and décor is mostly up-cycled from old unconventional items such as doors, cable reels, tins, pots, and so much more, brought to life with various finishing (if any) and colorful chitenge and other fabrics. This gives the place a rustic and interesting atmosphere. You will also notice a few vegetable patches, common in most Zimbabwean homes.

The dishes at Dusty Road are cooked on an open fire, the traditional way. Ingredients are indigenous and mostly what you would find in Zimbabwean kitchens. The desserts, however, have been given a bit more pizzazz with some more wild ingredients which you may not typically have in a modern Zimbabwean household, but all still found in Zimbabwe.
