Gorges Lodge

Perched 200 meters above the roaring Zambezi River, Gorges Lodge offers spectacular views and a quiet respite from the busy activities near Victoria Falls. The lodge is about a 30-minute drive from the falls on community land that it shares in partnership with local villages. Ten stone and thatch chalets sit on wooden platforms, each one facing an impressive skyline with views out over the gorge and river below. Activities from the lodge include visits to the falls and nearby Chisuma Village to gain insights into some of the real life daily activities of a typical Zimbabwean rural community. Additional activities at Gorges include walks into the gorge and birding treks to see the pair of Verreaux’s Eagles that also call the lodge home or head into Victoria Falls to participate in any number of the adventure activities available such as white-water rafting, bungee jumping, and helicopter or microlight flights over the falls.
