Gorges and Little Gorges Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 12, 2012

Gorges is beautiful, no words can even describe how pure and exotic the sights you will see when you are here. The rooms over look the Zambezi in spectacular fashion. Not to mention that you are close to Victoria Falls, and Gorges has buses to transport you to and from. Its extremely accommodating. Waking up to the Zambezi right out your door, and amazing sunsets in addition to the AMAZING staff, you will not be let down!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are fantastic!

What can I say, spending time at Gorges was like being on a movie set designed by an Oscar winning location & set designer. No kidding Gorges is the thing you only see in movies. The whole place is on the edge of the gorge and every room, the restaurant & the bar sit on the precipice. The sounds of the flowing mighty Zambezi River serenade you to sleep, the sky out your back door is filled with amazing birds, the staff is delightful, the food top notch, the surrounding area is wonderful and Vic Falls is just a nice drive up the road. I totally enjoyed Gorges, it was the cherry on the cake after a month in the bush in Zimbabwe. I spent quite a bit of time in Vic Falls and have to say if you are debating staying in the city of Victoria Falls or Gorges choose Gorges it is a no brainer. Gorges is AMAZING!

We recently returned from our trip to Zimbabwe. The highlight of our trip was the ending... seeing amazing Victoria Falls and staying at the breathtaking Gorges Lodge!

The view from and the originality of the lodge are second to none. You feel like you are suspended from thin air as you sit back and enjoy a glass of wine at the bar. Similarly, you can relax on your own private balcony from your room and listen to the calming Zambezi River 800 feet below you. Incredible!

The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and willing to accommodate you with any need, and do it with a smile! The food was very good... portion sizes very large, and the service was first class!

It is a short 10 minute drive to the town of Victoria Falls, so you get the best of both worlds!

I highly recommend Gorges Lodge and hope I am lucky enough to stay there again someday!

We ended our trip at Gorges Lodge. It was by far the most spectacular place to stay. I will make a trip back and stay there for weeks. The first night we got there I sat for hours in the main area/bar with my feet up enjoying their wonderful lemongrass drink (ask for that the second you get there) and fried chips that taste like french fries; I stared at the breathtaking view and listened to the river water. It made my trip.

The servers were so nice and polite and always had big smiles. They really did go out of their way to make you feel as comfortable as possible. All the food was delicious and the portion sizes are huge. In the morning they have all types of food and juices waiting for you. You can order hot items too like eggs, bacon, sausage, etc..

I am not much of a gardener because I hate putting in the time it takes to make a garden pretty. They put in overtime with their landscaping/gardening!! The landscaping is so incredible and well designed it is amazing.

The rooms are very nice and cleaned every day. They have two story lodges and one story lodges. The beds are very comfy and it was the best sleep I got on the trip. They keep the fridge stocked with chocolate goodies, water, beer (try Castle a delicious South African beer) and the prices aren't ridiculous like most hotels.

Gorges Lodge is not directly in Vic Falls so it is perfectly quiet and relaxing. The trip to Vic Falls is about 10 minutes away. You cannot ask for a better hotel setup. It is truly a one of kind hotel and experience. Trust me STAY THERE if you are planning a trip to Victoria Falls.

We just returned from Zimbabwe, and spent our last two nights in Victoria Falls at the Gorges Lodge. The Lodge is built on the cliffs over looking the Zambezi River. The rooms are very private with your own balcony on the edge of the cliff. The sound of the river flowing below is very relaxing when sitting on your balcony. The rooms are nice with comfortable beds and nice bathrooms. The staff is very friendly and always ready to help you with anything you need. Everything about the Gorges Lodge is breath taking. I have already recommended it to a friend thinking of coming to Victoria Falls.

Hi Brandi, thank you so much for recommending us to your friend. Our staff tries very hard to ensure our clients have the best stay possible and it’s always nice to be able to show them peoples compliments from trip advisor. The Gorges staff would love to show your friend the same standard hospitality in the future. We’re always looking to improve on the lodge and a large refurbishment is currently underway. Hopefully you’ll visit us again one day as I’m sure you’ll enjoy your stay as much the second time around as you did the first.

We have just returned to earth with a bump after 4 relaxing days at this most stunning of settings. We used this as R&R at the end of a full on safari and I am so glad we did it was the icing on the cake of our African adventure. Like others we had reservations about staying in Zimbabwe, but this part of the country does not appear to have the troubles of elsewhere. We had stayed on the Zambian side for two nights but found the town of Vic Falls to be far more attractive and quieter than Livingstone and the lodge, which is a bumpy (well typically African!) 1/2 hour ride from town to be a haven. What made it so great?.. Attentive staff, clean and spacious cottages, silence, stars,wholesome home cooked food, bar at the edge of the world, million dollar scenery, lovely gardens, a great hike down to the bottom of the gorge, lizards, butterflies, birds,squirrels and giant millipedes (cool!) and having the place completely to ourselves for 3 of the 4 nights! Would go back again without hesitation.

Hi hasbeeneverywhere, we’re so happy you had such a memorable stay. Building a lodge 202m up on the edge of the Zambezi Gorge was quite a feat but its comments like yours that make us realize it was worth every bit of effort. We pride ourselves on having one of the most unique locations in Africa, waking up to the soothing sound of the white water rushing by down below in the gorges is a lovely way to start your day. We hope to see you again in the future for another R&R vacation!

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
