Gorges Lodge Highlights
Gorges Lodge is unlike any other lodge in the world; built on the edge of the Batoka Gorge, some 250 breathtaking metres above the mighty Zambezi. Some people come to Gorges Lodge to do nothing more than relax on our decks and viewing stations, absorbing the incredible views whilst enjoying scrumptious homemade cuisine and delicious African wines. Others choose to swim, read a book and wander round our pristine gardens; soaking up some of the most remarkable scenes in all of Southern Africa; and being only a stone’s throw from one of the worlds Seven Wonders – Victoria Falls.

Gorges Lodge is home to an incredible population of raptors, as well as a stunning array of butterflies and wild flora. Several tame bushbuck, baboon and vervet monkey also roam the grounds, in the hope of finding a treat. The area offers almost every activity imaginable; catering for the thrill seeker, as well as the more relaxed holidaymaker. You can hop on board a friendly pachyderm for an elephant safari, or plummet down the Zambezi’s rapids on a white water rafting adventure. A sunset cruise is a great way to unwind, whilst a bungee jump will make your heart want to leap out of its chest.
