About
Wild Horizons Lookout Cafe is temporarily closed due natural disaster (fire). We hope to open again in May 2019. The Lookout Cafe is perched 120m above the turbulent rapids of the Zambezi River, overhanging a giant chasm of the Batoka Gorge, just downriver of the iconic Victoria Falls Bridge, which forms part of it's spectacular backdrop. The semi open-air cafe, apart from offering undoutbedly the best view in Victoria Falls, offers a menu of fresh, moden, colourful cuisine as well as a range of refreshing beverages and cocktails.

We stopped here for lunch after spending the morning in Victoria Falls Park. This restaurant has an amazing view of the bridge and gorge! The food was excellent and priced well, and the service was prompt and friendly. Definitely a must-see view!

A nice stop for lunch with the family after experiencing the awesomeness of Victoria Falls! What a sight to be able to dine and view people bungee jumping and swinging off the bridge over the Zambezi River. Highly recommend!!!!

This restaurant has a magnificent view of a deep gorge on the way to Victoria Falls. They serve decent food and have desks arranging for bungee jumping if you want to jump off the bridge.

We had cocktails and lunch at The Lookout Cafe which was very special. The setting and the views are unrivaled and the toasted sandwiches that we had were good value for money - large portions which we could've shared - and the cocktail was good.
