I knew I was onto a good wicket when within minutes of my first query I has a response! I was booking a romantic getaway for my fiancés birthday. Mike has his team delivered 8* service from a friendly wave on driving into the lodge, suitcases whisked away, arrival drinks and a breath taking view, not to mention everyone greeting... More

The only bad thing that I can say about The Gorge is that I only stayed there for 2 nights. My wife and I where totally amazed by the service from the time we arrived till we left. Your attention to detail is second to none. The staff in all honesty, is the friendliest most accommodating people I have met.... More

This is a very special place. My wife & I enjoyed a one night stay, which felt like we had been away for a week. The villa was fantastic. Furnishings and design are outstanding. The free-standing bath was a hit, especially the views over the gorge. We enjoyed the food , particularly dinner with a great wine pairing - good... More

What a find! Our expectations were uncertain, until we arrived! From the moment we drove in we were greeted by Setepi who looked after us. Beautifully appointed large sumptuous suites overlooking the gorge. The chef Chris cooked the most delicious meals, and the Spa service was fantastic. We would certainly revisit in the future.

Honesty is always admired so here goes... I didnt like the fact that we only stayed 3 days. Such beautiful peaceful surroundings is best enjoyed over a good couple days. U realise that once you press the reset button, all you want to do is sleep...relax in the bath overlooking the gorge and do...well...nothing. Didnt like the fact that we... More

I loved my time at the Gorge private game lodge and spa. From our arrival we received the warmest reception. We were welcomed like family. The attention to detail made the experience that much special. The room was pristine with immaculate views of the gorge. The food was absolutely scrumptious and lovingly prepared. The spa was just a delight that... More
