About Gorges Lodge
Gorges Lodge has arguably one of the most spectacular views in Southern Africa. It offers a unique Victoria Falls experience from its peaceful and idyllic base on the edge of the Batoka Gorge.
The main lodge area and the ten stone-under-thatch chalets are set in a magnificent, lush indigenous garden. Each chalet has stunning views; stretching right the way across the gorge and down to the Zambezi River, flowing 200 meters below.
Each individual en-suite stone chalet has a private garden and decked veranda: the ideal place to watch the sunrise (or set) over the Zambezi. You can look on, as black eagles and lanner falcons soar overhead. Gorges lodge is home to an incredible population of raptors, as well as a stunning array of butterflies and wild flora. Several tame bushbuck, baboon and vervet monkey roam the grounds, in the hope of finding a treat.
The main lodge, built on a stilted decking of indigenous hard wood, is in the middle of the ten chalets; teetering on the very edge of the gorge. The elegantly decorated lounge, dining room and bar offer extraordinary views over the gorge into Zambia.
There are two single storey honeymoon suites: Veranda overlooking the gorge, mains electricity with backup generator, overhead fan, mini bar, en-suite lounge, en-suite changing room with basin, bathroom and bath and a separate shower, bath and toilet.
There are four single story twin bedded suites: Veranda overlooking the gorge, mains electricity with backup generator, overhead fan, mini bar, en-suite lounge, en-suite changing room with basin, bathroom and bath and a separate shower, bath and toilet.
There are four double storey twin bedded suites: Upstairs bedroom and balcony featuring excellent gorge views, downstairs changing room that can be converted into a child's room, mains electricity with back-up generator, bathroom and bath and a separate shower, bath and toilet.
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.
