Nice place and shops and relatively calm and hassle free in the Vic Falls hubbub. Particularly recommend Angela, who makes Chitenge bags near the entrance, and the stalls near hers for the usual souvenirs. See separate review for 3 other traders in the complex.

Loved shopping around at this mall. Especially liked the recycle art created by Lewes Ncube. He makes sculptures out of wire and aluminum. There is also a great variety of carvings, paintings and sketches. Worth the time. Live music was a plus.

A very nicely designed shopping experience with great pieces of art displayed by local artists. The Elephant's Walk has many small shops and a great restaurant to get lunch or a coffee after shopping. There is also a crocodile enclosure and lovely gardens

A relaxed atmosphere to look at local crafts as compared to the street vendors. The merchandise is of high quality and the shop keepers friendly.
