An absolute seven star gem perched on the edge of the Orbi Gorge, The Gorge Private Game Lodge & Spa is an absolute must visit. An easy drive from Durban for 90 minutes or 2 hours if you are flying in and landing at King Shaka Airport.
A warm and friendly welcome awaits you from the moment you announce yourself at the gate to the extremely warm and world class service that is provided throughout your stay. As if by magic every single staff member knew our names before we even introduced ourselves.
The villa’s and suites provide unparalleled views of gorge, whose enchanting vistas are constantly changing. The suites are large and luxurious with king size beds and bath tub allowing you to relax and enjoy the serenity of the incredible views of the gorge. There is both an internal and external shower for the more adventurous. The villas are away from the main hotel complex, while suites are connected to the hotel. All your needs and requirements are met in the rooms which are difficult to tear yourself away from.
Breakfast and dinners are served in the main dining room which is beautifully appointed providing incredible views during the day whether you sit inside or outside while at night the ambience is warm and appealing. The food is world class cuisine with every mouthful offering a different flavor and egging you on for more.
Lunch is served at the relaxed casual area (Pool Deck Bistro) next to the pool and spa. A full spa offering is available to provide you with the opportunity to unwind and remove the stress of daily living.
For the more adventurous there are many activities both within the hotel property and at the Gorge. A good long walk down to the bottom of the gorge and back up provides you with a unique opportunity to explore the area and take in the sights and sounds of the local flora and fauna. Self-drives on the broader property give you an opportunity to see various types of antelope, giraffe, wildebeest and leopard if you are lucky. We were fortunate to spot the Samango Monkey (indigenous to the Gorge)
The entire experience is unique and special. The quality of the décor, food and service really makes this a seven star experience.
