About The Gorge Private Game Lodge & Spa

The Gorge Private Game Lodge & Spa is nestled in the pristine area of Kwazulu-Natal’s South Coast, a mere 35km inland from Port Shepstone. Referred to as the “photographer's and nature lover's paradise”, it has been carefully positioned to afford guests access to 5000ha of Oribi Flats prime land in the Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve, one of the most spectacular natural wonders of our diverse country.


The opulent, eco-friendly design of the spacious villas boasts double volume glass, offering guests panoramic views of the magnificent Oribi Gorge canyon. From this vantage point, guests can enjoy the sight of the endangered Cape Vultures gliding on the thermals and our ever changing views. Elevated 4 metres off the ground, each villa flows seamlessly from state-of-the-art comfort and luxury into the unique indigenous coastal forest with its abundance of butterfly and birdlife.
