Gorges Lodge Victoria Falls Zimbabwe

Zambezi River Gorge, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe


Gorges Lodge Victoria Falls Zimbabwe - Accommodation

The emphasis at the Gorges is on the view, and everything on the property was built to accentuate this wonderful draw card. 

Accommodation consists of ten chalets built right on the edge of the gorge. If you’re lucky enough to go white river rafting your guide might point out The Gorges from below, and you’ll be able to see the thatched roofs sticking out over the lush greenery. 
There are ten stone and brick chalets, of which six are single storey and four are double storey buildings. The single storey chalets have small verandas with comfy chairs that look out onto a small garden and of course the beautiful gorge. They have ensuite bathrooms and an additional hand basin and mirror in the ‘dressing’ area where the built-in closets are situated. The bathrooms are quite big and have separate baths and showers. 
Mosquito nets, insect repellent sprays and plug-in units as well as bug sprays are supplied, while the stocked bar fridge offers a selection of beers, bottled water, sweets and coldrinks. 
The double storey chalets have an extra bed on the lower level - so is ideal for families or groups of friends. Their bathrooms and dressing areas are also situated downstairs. The main beds are situated upstairs, where you’ll find the main feature of the chalet – the viewing deck. These were built on stilts OVER the 240m high gorge, and afford the most breath-taking views (if you can stomach it). As with the single storey chalets, these ones have comfy chairs that are ideal for simply lounging around and enjoying the wonderful view. We spotted quite a few predatory birds flying over the gorge and it was simply amazing to watch a cloud drift past on the wind! 

Two of the rooms have queen sized beds, while the rest have twins. The décor is simple and understated and doesn’t distract your attention from the great view. The rooms also come equipped with fans to keep you cool and comfortable during your stay.

Gorges Lodge Victoria Falls Zimbabwe - Characteristics and Facilities

The Gorges is known for its good food, and dining takes place in the large open-plan dining room with its impressive views of the gorge and the river below. The dining room forms part of the lounge and bar area and has heavy wooden tables and chairs with colourful table decorations. 

Breakfast includes fruit juices, cereals, yoghurt and fruit salad plus good cooked breakfasts of bacon, egg and sausage, or a hearty omelette. The service is fabulous and they have the most interesting butter dishes. Lunch is either from the buffet table or from their light meal and snack menu – depending on the amount of guests. 
Dinner is a great experience and guests enjoy dishes in a Table d’hote fashion. The setting is so tranquil that you might end up spending ages around the table talking to each other, the hotel’s friendly managers and staff or the other guests.

Vegetarians are welcome and the chef will gladly accommodate your preferences (please ensure however, that you inform us ahead of time, as to leave ample preparation time). 
The hotel’s bar opens mid morning and stays open ‘till 11.30pm. It is yet another popular relaxation spot and time seems to stand still once you sit down with a good drink.
