Come to Victoria Falls on holiday, and chances are you’ll find your fair share of restaurants offering African-inspired versions of our local cuisine. Here at Mbano Manor Hotel by Mantis, we’re proud to put authentic local food back on the menu. As your hosts, we showcase our culture to the world, and we also want to give our returning families and friends a taste of home cooking, plus a great holiday.

This 2-night Diaspora Vehama package is guaranteed to bring back the nostalgia of your childhood through all the flavourful dishes you’ve been dreaming about since you’ve been away. Just like our Amais (Mothers), Ambuyas (Grandmothers), and Tetes (Aunties) used to make! The good old days.
