Wild Horizons' iconic Lookout Café perched spectacularly right on the edge of the Zambezi River Gorges just below the Victoria Falls has opened its doors once again, after a devastating fire completely destroyed it a year ago.

The new Café/Restaurant is bigger, better, more beautiful and even more impressive than before.  It has vastly expanded its seating area, with an indoor restaurant seating 140, the outside terrace, seating 60 and a new lower deck which can seat up to 60.  Here are some of Wild Horizons' opening photographs and some detail about what's on offer:- 

"The African Contemporary styled restaurant is designed to emphasise its unique panoramic view of the Victoria Falls Bridge and Batoka Gorges, which form part of the spectacular backdrop.

Recycled and eco friendly material has been used throughout the rebuild of The Lookout ensuring it is infused with the Wild Horizons conservation ethos. With a mouthwatering menu, a lively selection of cocktails, and the best view in Victoria Falls, the dining experience promises to be a sensory overload.

None of this would have been possible without the vision and dedication of Clive Bradford and artist, Kerry Bradford. They transformed a devastating incident into an opportunity for innovation and they transformed an idea into a reality that exceeds our wildest expectations. Thank you both.

The new Lookout Café is open, and we are so excited to see you!"
