GORGES AND LITTLE GORGES – VICTORIA FALLS

Gorges and Little Gorges is built on the edge of the Batoka Gorge, some 200 metres above the Zambezi River. The lodge is famous for its spectacular views and resident black eagles which can often be seen flying and nesting along the gorge. Here you can relax in the peaceful accommodation which is nestled in landscaped gardens away from the hustle and bustle of Victoria Falls town but still have easy access for activities.

Little Gorges is perched on the edge of the Batoka Gorge next to main Gorges. This tented extension of Gorges overlooks the dramatic junction of the Dibu Dibu River and the Zambezi, where black eagles and lanner falcons nest in the sheer cliff faces. Construction of the luxury tents in this rugged, rocky and broken terrain required careful planning and feats of engineering and is a wonderful alternative to the main Gorges chalets while still providing all the same comforts.

Gorges and Little Gorges is a 30 minute drive from Victoria Falls town and offers a unique Victoria Falls experience from a peaceful and idyllic base on the edge of the Batoka Gorge. The lodge is ideal for a few days rest and relaxation either before or after your Zimbabwe safari.

LOCATION

Gorges and Little Gorges is located just outside Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. The road transfer from Victoria Falls Airport is approximately 30 minutes.

CAMP

The lodge is a 30 minute drive from Victoria Falls town centre; far enough away to allow you the chance to relax and absorb the incredible views and wildlife of the gorge whilst enjoying the comfortable accommodation, beautiful gardens and delicious homemade food.

Gorges has 10 stone under thatch chalets – 4 of the chalets are double storey and the other 6 are single storey, all with comfortable beds, mosquito nets, ensuite facilities with showers, overhead fans, mini bars and tea and coffee making facilities. The chalets are set in landscaped gardens and have private verandas with stunning views of the gorge.

Little Gorges has 5 luxury tents on wooden decks with ensuite bathrooms and showers cut back into the rocky terrain.

The main lodge is built on a raised deck of indigenous hardwood and has a lounge, dining room and bar that all offer extraordinary views over the gorge into Zambia. There is Free WiFi in the main lodge area and spa treatments are available either in your room or scenic spots around the lodge at an extra cost.

ACTIVITIES AND WILDLIFE

There is a huge variety of activities available in the lodge and around Victoria Falls which can all be booked locally. Some activities are included if you are staying on an all-inclusive basis.

Victoria Falls Tour – the world’s largest curtain of falling water. Stroll along the rainforest’s edge and pause at each vantage point. This can be enjoyed quietly on your own or with the lodge guide.

Village visit – you can enjoy a visit to nearby Chisuma Village to gain insights into some of the daily activities of a typical Zimbabwean rural community. Part of the tour includes a spontaneous visit to an individual household where you are welcomed and invited to join some daily activities such as crushing grain into meal, ploughing the fields and brewing beer.

School visit – Imvelo has made huge inputs into the schools surrounding lodges and providing you visit on a weekday you can visit the local primary school. Pupils love to interact with guests as a way to practice their language skills and broaden horizons. Part of the visit includes a welcome song and dance performance by the children as well as a class interaction, usually around an atlas or their schoolbooks.

Traditional Dancing – the dancers come from villages within walking distance of Gorges Lodge and love to entertain guests in the evenings. Sebenze and his troupe perform just after sundown and their energetic dance and drum routine is vibrant and interactive.

Gorge walk – the lodge is set in a magnificent and lush indigenous garden with stunning views across the gorge and of the Zambezi River 200 metres below. Explore the area around the lodge accompanied by a guide and enjoy refreshments and freshly prepared snacks while you watch the sun set at Peregrine Point.

Black eagle viewing – a pair of Verreaux’s Eagles nest in the gorge at the lodge and provide guests with amazing displays of their aerobatic skills and courtship rituals, often at eye level. Evenings are their hunting time so sit back with sundowners and snacks as these magnificent birds soar past on thermals whilst hunting in the gorge. The eagles are not the only birds resident here – lanner falcons, peregrine falcons and augur buzzards also call the gorge home, and the interspecific interactions are a highlight when the eagles stray too close to the falcons’ nests.

Sundowner cruise – on the Zambezi River with drinks and snacks.

Pop Up Spa – Imvelo’s ethos is to enrich the lives of local people and have strong links with communities around the lodges. Spa treatments fall in line with the tradition of empowering the community through providing jobs in tourism and the beauty therapists have been hand-picked from the surrounding community area and trained locally. Spar treatments are offered either in your room or at scenic spots around the lodge.
