Gorges Lodge


Imvelo Gorges Lodge sits on the rim of the Batoka Gorge, 250 metres above the mighty Zambezi, giving it a location unique amongst all African Lodges.

The ten stone and thatched cottages that make up the lodge sit along the rim of the gorge and with their own private garden and veranda, this is an ideal location to sit and enjoy the stunning views. The birding is a real attraction here, with regular sightings of Black Eagles and a variety of raptors soaring high above the gorge. Guests will benefit from a regular shuttle service into Victoria Falls and a chance to enjoy the adrenalin-fuelled activities for which the town is so well known, as well as the chance to explore The Falls themselves. 


Our Thoughts

Gorges Lodge has a real wow factor with its truly spectacular setting. Sip a cold drink in the bar as you watch white water rafters pass below and eagles soar overhead.

  • Private gardens and verandas
  • Large decking area overlooking the gorge
  • Swimming pool
  • Lounge and bar area
  • Shuttle service into Victoria Falls town

Meals are taken in the dining room or on the large open decking area overlooking the gorge. The emphasis is on fresh, locally sourced, seasonal ingredients to provide a menu that changes daily. The menu is complimented by a selection of hand picked South African wines. 

All of the 10 ten stone and thatch cottages are identically furnished, with their own private gardens and verandas with views out across the gorge. They are all equipped with ceiling fans and fully stocked minibars.

  • Fantastic birding from the lodge
  • Victoria Falls Tours
  • Game drives

Children are accepted here, however, in terms of the location and activities offered, there are better options for families in Zimbabwe.
