Perched on the very edge of Bakota Gorge, just 10 kilometres downstream of the thundering Victoria Falls, this luxury lodge boasts some of the most spectacular views in Southern Africa. From your epic vantage point high above the Zambezi river, take the time to explore, unwind and immerse yourself in the rich culture of this vibrant land.
Gorges Lodge has a selection of 10 luxury cottages, while Little Gorges offers a further five tents
Main lodge area with viewing deck and bar
Outdoor swimming pool with stunning views
Extensive activities including guided tour of the Victoria Falls, village visits, black eagle viewing and sunset cruise
In-house spa treatments
Spacious stone-under-thatch chalets, each with their own veranda, boast breath-taking views across the rocky gorge. High wooden beams and soft furnishings surround large four-poster beds – this is a safari experience with no compromise on luxury. Beautifully manicured gardens lead back to the central lodge, complete with dining area, a refreshing pool and relaxing lounge. Unwind with a cool cocktail on the viewing deck at sunset and soak up the untamed beauty of the dramatic landscape before you. From your prime position, watch in wonder as eagles sore at eye-level, riding the thermals while observing their rocky hunting ground.
There is much exploring to be done in the areas surrounding the lodge, with gorge-edge walks and guided hikes, all ending in excellent refreshments. In Victoria Falls town, there is plenty to keep your adventurous side occupied; from white water rafting down the surging Zambezi River, to the 110-metre bungee off the bridge connecting Zimbabwe to Zambia, your next adrenaline rush is never far away.
