The Lookout Cafe

Perched on the edge of the Batoka Gorge, this open air cafe is one of the favourites in Victoria Falls. Spectacular views of the gorges and Zambezi River below plus so much more, make the Lookout a special place for more than just a meal.

Location of The Lookout - 120m above the Zambezi rapids

The Lookout Cafe has fast become one of the favourite spots for both locals and international guests. The view alone is enough to call you back over and over again. Perched on the edge of the Batoka gorge with the Zambezi rapids raging more than 100m below, this beautiful spot has views of the gorges, the Victoria Falls Bridge and the spray of the Falls themselves.

Located a short distance away from the Victoria Falls Rainforest entrance, and a stones throw away from where the high-wire activities are done. Diners can watch adrenalin junkies on the activities such as the gorge swing, zip line and flying fox.

The menu at the Lookout has received rave reviews, and with dishes such as Warthog Kebab (yes real wild warthog meat), Crocodile Kebab (yes, real croc meat), Sherry-infused Rack of Rib or Ostrich Fan Fillet Kebab, The Lookout offers fabulous and filling meals. Platters and snacks are also available for those who want something light with a cold beer, cocktails or wine while enjoying the fresh breeze and the view.
