Destination: Victoria Falls
The Gorges Lodge is a fantastic bush retreat perched on top of Zimbabwe’s Batoka Gorge, 200m above the Zambezi River. The lodge was built on private land and is roughly 24km from Victoria Falls town.
The lodge is close enough to the Victoria Falls to allow its guests the full advantage of all the activities in the area, and far enough to create a feeling of seclusion, peace and quiet from all the tourist commotion. The lodge is easily reached by road and a mere 23km away from the Victoria Falls Airport.
This place is simply amazing – and you wouldn’t believe the magnificent views it affords. Be warned though – if you have a fear of heights, this place might be a bit overwhelming. The bar, dining area, lounge and viewing deck are all situated in one completely open-sided thatched building with the most beautiful views directly into the Batoka Gorge. You are literally on top of a massive cliff-face! All the rooms share this magnificent view and were built in a row on the edge of this beautiful cliff. The double storey chalets have upper level decks that were actually built onto stilts that span over the edge of the gorge! The single storey chalets are a bit tamer and have small verandas with views of the gorge, without the intense height factor. The rush of the Zambezi below is a constant background sound and is very soothing - especially at night.
There are many interesting books on the area and its inhabitants lying around for guests to read, and the setting completely encourages this way of leisurely passing the time. We liked the book on the history of the Kariba Lake which was actually signed by, and given as a gift to the Gorges by the original author.
The property itself is surrounded by indigenous riverine vegetation and blends in well with the surrounds.
