It’s difficult to put into words the sheer luxury and breath-taking cliff-edge setting. My private villa had floor to ceiling glass walls with a gorgeous standalone bath so I could look out into the gorge from my fragrant bubble bath. Birds of prey flew past at eye-level. It was hard to leave for dinner, but so glad I did. The cuisine is world-class, as is the service. The perfect place to spoil loved ones.

ABOUT The Gorge Private Game Lodge & Spa

Nestled in the majestic Oribi Gorge of KwaZulu-Natal and surrounded by spectacular sandstone cliffs and tropical coastal forests, The Gorge Private Game Lodge & Spa’s dramatic location is unparalleled.

Contemporary and sophisticated Villas and Rooms perch on the cliff edge overlooking panoramic views of the gorge, and a rich biodiversity of plant, animal and birdlife make this destination a nature lovers paradise. There’s plenty to see and do including daily educational game drives, vulture excursions, hiking and mountain biking trails, even Africa’s highest and fastest zip line, if you’re feeling brave.

Award-winning cuisine is served in the fine dining restaurant, at the pool deck café, beneath flickering stars and lamps in the boma, or in your own private setting. Where organic home-grown produce is accompanied by the finest wines. The private wine cellar is also an ideal venue for private functions and meetings, while the Clivia Spa offers an indulgent selection of treatments.

The Gorge feedback
25 Mar 2014

"Sadly, as South Africans we have become accustomed to poor service from many supposedly 5-Star establishments. The Gorge exceeded all our expectations, and our expectations were high to begin with. Catharina and Mike were warm, friendly and welcoming, the entire staff were attentive and professional, even the chef was willing to vary the dishes on the menu to accommodate various requests from us. The Gorge was worth every cent and has set a new standard for us - we now judge our holiday experiences against the experience we had at the Gorge, and to date, not many places come close. Thanks"

A piece of paradise found in Kwa Zulu Natal

"Housed in a luxurious chalet with a beautiful view into the gorge "Oribi Gorge" we had spent 6 romantic days. The staff and management has spoiled us with great attention and excellent service every day. Excellent food with excellent wines made ??sure that a gourmet experience followed the others. A professional handwriting pulls through, including in the many spa services. We had wanted something special for our silver wedding anniversary and found it in "The Gorge". Highly recommended for all couples who want to be pampered and for us in any case worth a repeat."
