The lodge is quiet and peaceful. Lovely to watch the sunrise from one's comfortable bed. An interesting talk on black eagles and our visitors enjoyed the traditional dancing. Strong wi-fi in the lounge area - no connection in the rooms, not something that we needed.

I was lucky enough to spend four nights in Little Gorges in one of the splendid tents at the start of a wildlife tour in Zimbabwe. Looking out over the Gorge from my deck in front of the tent with a cold Zambesi in my hand was perfection. The Lodge is comfortable and well run and the welcome we had...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Gorges and Little Gorges is a mere 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 - a perfect choice for your Victoria Falls safari adventure! At Gorges you can relax away from the hustle and bustle of Victoria Falls town - our peaceful guest accommodation is nestled in a landscaped garden that makes walking to your room a joy, and our staff are renowned for their warm hospitality. Gorges is famous for its spectacular views, described by some as the best in southern Africa; whether you are enjoying a cup of coffee at sunrise on your private veranda or a cool refreshment by the pool at sunset, you will be constantly drawn to the stunning vistas provided by the Batoka Gorge and the rushing waters of the Zambezi River below. 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 necessitated careful planning and feats of engineering and is a wonderful alternative to the main Gorges chalets while still providing all the same comforts. ... more   less
