The Gorge nestles the majestic Oribi Gorge, which is an unspoiled region of KwaZulu-Natal's magnificent South Coast in South Africa. Gorge Private Safari Lodge is only 32 kilometres away from Port Shepstone; the five-star lodge offers one of the most spectacular natural wonders of South Africa. Being just a one and quarter hours drive away from Durban makes for an ideal accommodation for any honeymoon, anniversary, or any particular day destination.
The exclusive luxury villas are built on the edge of the impressive sandstone cliffs from where guests may enjoy spectacular views of the Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve. From this vantage point, guests have the opportunity to observe the endangered Cape vultures gliding on the thermals, as well as the ever-changing views.
