Our second trip to Oribi Gorge and the Gorge Lodge and Spa. Mike and his team were incredible hosts, once again! We visited to Lodge in June 2012 for a single night and this time stayed 4 nights. We kept ourselves busy with zip-lining (a must!), spa treatments, day walks/hikes and general relaxing near the pool or in our room... More
