This lodge is absolutely awesome. Chris and Debbie who run it are amazing people. Attention to detail is impeccable and the food is excellent. Nothing is too much trouble. Do yourself a favour and stay here on your visit to the falls.

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

Dear KSJones1, Thank you for taking the time to review Gorges, feedback is so important to us to ensure we continue to provide excellent service to our valued guests.

We travelled to Zimbabwe during a 1 month overall vacation based, primarily, in South Africa.

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

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
