This intimate oasis overlooks outstanding views of the dramatic Batoka Gorge
Away from the crowds at the world-famous waterfalls, Gorges Lodge is an idyllic retreat found just outside of Victoria Falls town. While modest in style, it’s the location that’s really stand out here; perched dramatically above the red rocks of the Batoka Gorge, the sights and sounds of the Zambezi River below are just jaw-dropping. This is a place where you can escape from the real world. There's an attractive lounge, bar and dining room in the main property, and a swimming pool outside in the wonderful gardens, while throughout the grounds, the individual stone chalets offer total seclusion. High-thatched ceilings combine with wrought-iron fittings and a creamy marble bathroom, and we love the private gardens where you can just sit and drink in those glorious gorge views.
There’s so much to see and do here, whether you want action and adventure or a respite where you can just unwind. Spend some time relaxing beside the pool, or treat yourself to a treatment at the pop-up spa, which can indulgently be arranged in the privacy of your own chalet deck. If you’re after a touch of culture, the lodge can arrange visits to a nearby village and local school. Or you can just stay outdoors; from a guided tour of Victoria Falls to a sunset cruise, gorge walk and even swimming in the waterfalls, adventure seekers and enthusiasts will truly be in their element here.
