Get a meaningful piece of art…
Bring Africa to your home.
Some friends of ours who visit Zimbabwe regularly, told us how, with their travels over the years to different places in Africa – they got to see that a trip became more memorable when they returned home with a larger curio.
The key rings and fridge magnets in time got lost and forgotten about – but the bigger pieces of art that they bought, are still there reminding them of the great times they had.
Here’s an example – a home in England surrounded with art pieces from Victoria Falls Zimbabwe.

Why Start Art @ Vic Falls?
While there is much on offer (with everyone hopeful that they will make a sale), tourists are often scared off by persistent vendors, who roam around with one or two carved objects.
How sad, because the true artists are humbly waiting at their shops, not disturbing or worrying anyone. They have got a selling licence, are paying rent and have got amazing talents that they are using to create art products.
So many don’t even see their work…
Another reason is, like in all places there is a bit of mass-production and many of the same things are promoted and found in each shop. So again, the real artists are overlooked and get lumped together with the supposed, “yeah, I’ve already seen it all.”
There is more on offer than just those few items that you are being asked to buy.
By featuring the Artists – you will know what artwork is in the area.
Welcome to Art at Vic Falls it’s a place to meet the artists, read their stories and to buy original art online. Shopping in Victoria Falls Zimbabwe for art just got a whole lot easier!
