This is a lovely tented lodge, built on the edge of the cliffs overlooking the Zambezi River, east of the Victoria Falls. The lodge , and tented rooms, are situated on the cliff edge, with spectacular views of the river at the bottom of the gorge about 200 metes below. You can site at the bar, or in your room and watch the birds ( including the occasional eagle) going about their lives, below you. The Lodge is about 20 minutes from the town, the guides are fantastic and will assist you getting into the falls then leave you to wander through on your own, use the poncho, as, even in March there is enough spray to leave you well and truly soaked. I added a 13 minute helicopter ride to my visit, which is well worth it, I booked in advance, if you are a keen photographer, it a "must do" item. Also, as another 'add on" ,I went "walking with the elephants" another unforgettable experience. Over all fantastic place, Hosts Debbie and Chris are wonderful people, full of knowledge and will do their utmost to make your stay unforgettable
The location is second to none. A little remote but right on the cliff face of the Gorge. All the staff went over and above to accomodate us. Richmond our driver was just awesome. We felt very welcome. The food was ok but we would of loved to try some local dishes. The price was very expensive however we found this to be the case in most parts of Africa we visited
A most beautiful place on earth
Gorges Lodge, also named Imvelo (Nature) Gorges Lodge, is a hidden gem on the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe over looking the cliffs to Zambia. About 20 minutes to Victoria Falls, down a dirt road and by safe villages, it offers amazing views, food, nature walks, helpful and accomodating staff and a very Nature filled experience. Stay in lodges or safari tents, all very comfy, plumbing and gorgeous views. Black eagles nest all around, wild flowers, traditional dance nice touches too. Sports activites around the area include rafting, walking, pool, safari drives.
Fabulous views, friendly staff and comfortable chalet.
Arriving at Gorges; the view was a huge shock, absolutely out of this world, and has to be experienced. The chalet was beautiful, and supplied with everything you could wish for. The staff was so friendly and nice, did their best to spoil us both for breakfast and dinner. With utmost skill and care MK (our driver) took us a long the bumpy road to Victoria Falls, the falls, and to a Sun-Downer Cruise. Thank you to all of them for making our trip so memorable.
Beautiful Views and Comfortable Rooms
We stayed in the Little Gorges area which was really nice. Great views of the gorge. Tents here are very spacious and well-appointed. Fully functioning bathroom, very comfortable beds, safe, nice amenities (things like sunscreen, insect repellant). Food was really good. Breakfast made to order plus some buffet stuff. Food was always well-prepared. Good selection of beverages. Service was great. Very friendly. They also have some really knowledgeable staff. One thing we had was a lecture on eagles as the lodge has a pair that hang out nearby.
