Stayed for three nights as part of a Saga tour and this was a fantastic starting point as we were knocked out immediately by the amazing views over Batuko gorge. The sunsets and sunrises were brilliant. We stayed in Little Gorges and these tented chalets really gave you the greatest views. Rooms were spotless and beds very comfortable. Much appreciated...

Dusty bumpy roads lead to this property but once you enter, lush green vegetation and gorgeous views await you. Perfect place to relax and then venture into Victoria Falls. Conrad drove us around and had the perfect attitude and ventured wherever we asked. Be aware that lodge room #8 is 2 story and the bathroom is downstairs from the bedroom.... More

Beautiful views! This was a great start to our Imvelo Lodge vacation. It was close enough to Victoria Falls to take in a little more of the area but far enough away to enjoy the secluded area. Deb and staff were wonderful, and very attentive. Fantastic service!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
