Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Spent 3 nights here in June 2014, the rooms are brilliant. Debbie the manager is excellent and went above and beyond the call of duty. I got engaged to my fiancée and she couldn't do enough for us. The joy of the place is its tranquility and beauty. Close enough to Vic Falls to easily do any of the wonderful activities on offer but far enough away so you can enjoy the 'wild'. The road was being regraded when we were there and will be a much better drive now. Such happy staff and a joy to be there. Thanks again Debbie and team we won't forget you xxx

Room Tip: They are all really good!

I stayed here for two nights on a study abroad trip with my school while we were visiting Victoria Falls, and I had a great time. The view is breathtaking, especially when the sun rises and sets, and the staff was very sweet and attentive. I also loved the little shop they had so that we could purchase local gifts for family and friends. I would definitely come back here. The rooms are fairly spread out, so if walking is difficult for anyone in your party, I would request a room that is close to the main lodge area. About a 20 to 30 minute drive to the Falls area, so plan accordingly.

Room Tip: I rated the value and fitness center as average, because I am not sure what the actual rates for the...

Dear Kaitlin,

A big thank you for taking the time to write this review of your stay at Gorges Lodge. We're glad you enjoyed our breathtaking views and hope you found some lovely souvenirs for everyone back home!

We acknowledge your comment about some of our rooms being a bit of a distance from the main lodge - we did this so that all the rooms could be extremely private and peaceful so that our guests could feel as though they have the amazing view all to themselves!

We do offer our guests a free return transfer to town per paying night that they stay with us so they can still visit the Falls during their stay, while still enjoying the peace and quiet of the lodge being out of town.

Thanks again for your feedback.

Warm regards,

The Gorges Lodge Team

I stayed two nights in April. Wish I had more time!!! The beauty is unsurpassed. Tranquil. Just perfect. Everyone was so nice. The food was unbelievable. The cottages well stocked. To sit on my porch in the morning drinking coffee and enjoying the view-wow!! I will return but next time will schedule more time for Gorges!!

Thank you so much for your 5 star review! We are so pleased to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay at Gorges! We also feel that it is an absolute treasure in Zimbabwe, one of our favourite things too is having morning coffee with the Zambezi River rushing past 200m below! Please do return soon and come and enjoy more peaceful and beautiful days with us at Gorges! All the best from the Gorges team and all at Imvelo Safari Lodges.

I loved Gorges Lodge! A two night stay was not long enough! The space, peace and quiet and beautiful surroundings restored body and soul. Black eagles nesting and soaring close by our balcony were a highlight. The staff were excellent and provided first class service. Our room was very comfortable although we spent almost all our time on the balcony taking in the magnificent views. Deep down in the gorge the river was high and fast and occasional shrieks from intrepid rafters shooting the rapids added excitement. In the distance we could see mist rising over the falls. A memorable and special time. I would love to return.

Incredible place and what a view! We stayed a night during our visit to Vic Falls and wow was it worth it. It's a fair way out of town, but the incredible views, excellent service, unique lodges (room 1 is fab!) make this a really memorable stay. The food is great too! To top it off, local villagers stop by to put on a really cool dance and singing show before dinner--it was really good! A peaceful place to relax after a visit to Victoria Falls or before Safari...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Gorges and Little Gorges is a mere 30 minute drive from Victoria Falls town and offers a unique Victoria Falls experience from a peaceful and idyllic base on the edge of the Batoka Gorge - a perfect choice for your Victoria Falls safari adventure! At Gorges you can relax away from the hustle and bustle of Victoria Falls town - our peaceful guest accommodation is nestled in a landscaped garden that makes walking to your room a joy, and our staff are renowned for their warm hospitality. Gorges is famous for its spectacular views, described by some as the best in southern Africa; whether you are enjoying a cup of coffee at sunrise on your private veranda or a cool refreshment by the pool at sunset, you will be constantly drawn to the stunning vistas provided by the Batoka Gorge and the rushing waters of the Zambezi River below. Little Gorges is perched on the edge of the Batoka Gorge next to main Gorges. This tented extension of Gorges overlooks the dramatic junction of the Dibu Dibu River and the Zambezi, where black eagles and lanner falcons nest in the sheer cliff faces. Construction of the luxury tents in this rugged, rocky and broken terrain necessitated careful planning and feats of engineering and is a wonderful alternative to the main Gorges chalets while still providing all the same comforts. ... more   less
