Victoria Falls Wild Horizons Lookout Café is scheduled to reopen on September 1 after a facelift following a fire which gutted down the restaurant on December 24 last year.
This was revealed in a statement posted on their website yesterday.
“When flames engulfed and devastated the Wild Horizons Lookout Café, it was a searing loss for the town of Victoria Falls. While we have been working tirelessly on the reconstruction of this iconic restaurant, due to circumstances beyond our control, the process has encountered numerous hindrances along the way. For this reason, we have regretfully had to postpone the opening date to 1 September 2019.”
The restaurant is perched on the rim of the Batoka Gorge, Wild Horizons Lookout Café is a fusion of spectacular views and exquisite food.
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 have been used throughout the rebuild of the Lookout ensuring it is infused with the Wild Horizons conversation ethos.
The café was reduced to ashes by a fire suspected to have been caused by an electric fault and property worth thousands of dollars was completely destroyed.
