I'm rounding up from a 3.5 because Debbi was so lovely and helpful during our time there! After seeing the Royal Livingstone I really wish we would have stayed there but I had no idea as to the distances and was worried about the lack of water at the falls from the Zambian side. As it happened we only went... More

We travelled to Zimbabwe during a 1 month overall vacation based, primarily, in South Africa. The accommodation recommendation was made by Vayeni - see separate review - on the basis of our requirements. We were not disappointed. The location of Gorges Lodge is fantastic - it's situated directly above the Zambesi and the views from the main building are fantastic.... More

The lodge is perched on the edge of the Batoka Gorge, with gorgeous views of the river below. The chalets have private verandas affording separate views of the gorge. I groaned when I heard there was local dancing before dinner, but the young men's group from the village was brilliant. However, the food is mediocre. (Tinned fruit salad at breakfast??)... More

As you walk into this lodge nothing seems to special and then the view hits you flat in the face. The lodge is designed right on the edge of the gorge with amazing views over the Zambezi and across to Zambia. The managers, staff and food are excellent. All the rooms have excellent views, clean and comfortable. As a safari... More

We stayed in Gorges Lodge füor 3 nights in December 2015. The villas are very nice, with new and perfect bathrooms, the views into the 250 metres deep Sambesi River Gorge is incredible. The owners are nice people. Only the meals could be better. During the day you only get some not too tasty salads, sandwiches etc. In the evening... More

What a lovely surprise - DO NOT worry about the unmade road that you have to take for the final 11 km of the journey from Victaoria Falls. It is well worth the journey and the drivers who take you back and from to town are lovely. The Lodge and the staff are hugely welcoming and the view and peace... More
