The Gorge Private Game Lodge & Spa is nestled in an unspoiled part of South Africa's South Coast region of KwaZulu-Natal, the majestic Oribi Gorge. Situated only 32km from Port Shepstone, it offers one of the most spectacular natural wonders of our diverse country.

about the gorge

The Gorge Private Game Lodge & Spa is a 5 star (still to be graded) establishment and is owner managed. The lodge has been designed to experience the ever changing views of the indigenous surroundings of the gorge. It has been built with minimal disruption of the indigenous fauna and flora.

Our exclusive, luxury villas are built on the edge of the impressive sandstone cliffs offering spectacular views of the Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve. From this vantage point, guests can enjoy the sight of the endangered Cape Vultures gliding on the thermals and our ever changing views.

Our owner-managed boutique lodge provides unsurpassed hospitality, world class service and exquisite fine dining cuisine. Our fully-equipped Spa with its lavish Spa menu enables you to relax and rejuvenate.

Our commitment to you allows absolute flexibility in all areas of your stay, ensuring you a most memorable "timeless" experience.

Nature lovers will enjoy our informative guided trails through the indigenous coastal forests with its rich bio-diversity of plant, animal, insect and birdlife. Most of Southern Africa's plains animals can be seen on our daily educational game drives.

Only one and a half hours drive from Durban makes us the ideal accommodation choice for visitors to South Africa's east coast. Travelers can enjoy being shuttled to and from Durban in KwaZulu-Natal.

The chalets provide an unsurpassed experience. Our guests are pampered with sheer luxury while the surrounding natural splendour invites them to feast their eyes. There are five spacious (81 square meter) chalets; all built on 14m columns elevated 3 to 4 meters off the ground to minimise the impact on the environment.

The main structure and dome roof have been built from concrete while the walls have a natural rock cladding to blend with the sandstone cliffs of the gorge. The interior decor blends ultra modern state-of-the-art gadgets with a touch of Africa.

Two thirds of each chalet boasts double volume glass creating an unobstructed view of the Mzimkulwana River and the Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve.


The Gorge Luxury Accommodation

room details

Each chalet has its own indoor and private outdoor shower overlooking the gorge. The splendid view hundreds of meters below could also be enjoyed from the large quartz stone bath while sipping a martini.

All chalets are fitted with Caesarstone quartz surface vanities and mahogany furnishings in the large dressing rooms.

Each chalet is fitted with an Eco Aire air conditioner, mini bar and a 74cm LCD TV with a full bouquet of DSTV channels. A wide selection of movies is available on the automated/rotating viewing channel.


The Gorge Spa


Spoil yourself to a rejuvenating experience in our spa where numerous treatment options in a breathtaking environment are available.

The Gorge Spa's three treatment rooms each sport a large window providing a spectacular view of the majestic cliffs of Oribi Gorge. One is a double room, giving couples the opportunity to enjoy a relaxing massage or revitalising body wrap in each others company.

Allow nature to replenish body and soul. Our unique treatments, performed by experienced therapists, incorporate the acclaimed Dermalogica brand, as well as the eco-friendly Africology body therapy range. Treat yourself to some hand or foot therapy whilst soaking up the sun on a private deck, or lounging next to the Jacuzzi.

The Gorge Gourment Cuisine


Our intimate open plan restaurant with magnificent views of the gorge is the place to relax and enjoy a pre-dinner drink with the owners or fellow guests. Breakfast and healthy lunches are also served here.
Feed your taste buds and indulge your palate while watching our signature chef Deon Kemp as he prepares your delectable cuisine OR join in and learn from the master himself.

Alternatively join in the dinner festivities at one of our themed boma venues. Dinner may also be served in your room.

Our wine cellar restaurant and cigar lounge was completed in mid 2010. We offer Halaal and Kosher meal services.
