Overlooking the Butoka Gorge, the Lookout Cafe more than delivers on its name. The spareribs alone would make it worth a visit.

The view over the Batoka Gorge is breathtaking and a wonderful spot for the keen photographer. For a super thrill try the Zip Line.

It offers stunning views of the Zambezi bridge and gorge. But it's useless going here once it is dark, as everywhere is dark. Very poor lighting around the whole place. Avoid dinners here. The food prices are on the high side.More
