“Magical....”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Many thanks to Chris, Deb and staff for another wonderful time at Gorges Lodge. We stayed there the beginning of July 2014 and everything was superb! The accommodations very clean, lovely decor and all with amazing views! The food delicious and staff friendly and very accommodating. Our drivers, Conrad and Richmond, were great too!

We loved the eagle viewing and sundowners with Chris and other guests. Deb made sure our activities and transportation around Vic Falls went smoothly. I loved listening to her stories too! We will definitely be back and will recommend Gorges Lodge to others.

Be sure to inquire about the local school visit and Pack for a Purpose. Deb will arrange a special visit with the teachers and students.

We hope to see you next year!

Our family satyed here for a couple nights and from the moment we stepped out of our transfer to the time we left we were treated with the utmost of Class. The pictureque view of the Gorge, the service and the food was all exceptional. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. I loved to start the day just sitting on our deck with a cup of cofee just looking out over the Gorge. Awesome is all I can say!

I have travelled for many years to many Lodges and never has a lodge taken my breath away like Gorges. It is set high above the Zambezi River where the rafters bash through the gorge....absolutely beautiful.

The rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable, and completely private. When the Eagles fly by, you feel like your alone with them.

The Family managing this Lodge are wonderful people. Mother with a heart of gold, father with an amazing knowledge of the area and daughter with so much energy, she will get you excited about a boring tree!!!!

Debbie (mom) has moved mountains for us while we were hear and I am so grateful to have had the chance to experience the Lodge.

Room Tip: Room 1 is the room furthest away from the main lodge, but wonderful

What an amazing place, the chalets are really comfortable and immaculately clean. The team are really friendly and nothing is too much for them. The views from the balcony overlooking the Gorges are fantastic. This, without a doubt, must be the only place that you can get such fantastic views. A must place to stay if you go to the Falls.

Literally - When you are at Gorges Lodge you are literally at the height above the Zambezi that that Black Eagles soar!

Set Just outside the busy town of Victoria Falls this is the perfect escape from the hustle of the myriad of travelers that pass through and stay in the legendary Victoria Falls. The Lodge location takes you by surprise - you turn off the main road get out of your vehicle and are lulled into a sense of wilderness on solid ground then you walk through to the deck and WOW, you are on the edge of a precipice with only wooden rails (very solidly constructed) to stop you stepping off the edge! Spectacular does not even begin to describe it, even my morbid fear of heights did not stop me from admiring the sheer wonder of the view of the mighty Zambezi and the cliffs that channel her power.

We stayed in one of the recently refurbished rooms and it was perfect. We could open the balcony door at night and bug screens allowed us to fall asleep to the sound of the river and the night music of the wilderness. No sound of parties or traffic here.

Dinner was preceded by a blood pounding dance from Sebenze and his talented team of traditional dancers, just the right thing to get all of us ready for a Braai (BBQ) of local meat and sausage - there may have been other things on the menu and I am sure they were equally delicious but I only had eyes for the braai.

If you want to be just out of town but have the view of a lifetime - this place is for you!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the refurbished rooms - although that may now be a mute point!

There are many unique things about Gorges Lodge but the main thing is the location - overlooking the rugged beauty of the Batoka Gorge. The view of the Zambezi River winding through the gorge 200 metres below is something special to behold and the constant rushing sound of the rapids is soothing and relaxing. We were met by Debbie who is a fantastic hostess and never allowed us to want for anything. We were treated to see the resident (in the gorge) Black Eagles feed and Chris gave us a wonderfully informative talk on the eagles which we really enjoyed. We also enjoyed the traditional dancing during the evening where audience participation is encouraged.

Each unique room has the same wonderful view of the gorge and river and the furnishings and decor are really exquisite and creatively sumptuous. The bathrooms are luxurious and cleverly put together. The mattresses here are possibly the most comfortable I have ever slept on. Lastly in the rooms - this is one lodge where they provide more than enough teas / coffees in the room for anyones taste and the well stocked mini bars will keep anyone happy - even those with a sweet tooth!!!

The service was very good and the friendliness of the staff is genuine and honest and they have an honest interest in all the guests. The food was superb and plentiful and we really enjoyed all the meals we had here - especially the beef evening meal and the evening dessert. We are looking forward to visiting Gorges Lodge again.

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
