The emphasis at the Gorges is on the view, and everything on the property was built to accentuate this wonderful draw card.
Accommodation consists of ten chalets built right on the edge of the gorge. If you’re lucky enough to go white river rafting your guide might point out The Gorges from below, and you’ll be able to see the thatched roofs sticking out over the lush greenery.
There are ten stone and brick chalets, of which six are single storey and four are double storey buildings. The single storey chalets have small verandas with comfy chairs that look out onto a small garden and of course the beautiful gorge. They have ensuite bathrooms and an additional hand basin and mirror in the ‘dressing’ area where the built-in closets are situated. The bathrooms are quite big and have separate baths and showers.
Mosquito nets, insect repellent sprays and plug-in units as well as bug sprays are supplied, while the stocked bar fridge offers a selection of beers, bottled water, sweets and coldrinks.
The double storey chalets have an extra bed on the lower level - so is ideal for families or groups of friends. Their bathrooms and dressing areas are also situated downstairs. The main beds are situated upstairs, where you’ll find the main feature of the chalet – the viewing deck. These were built on stilts OVER the 240m high gorge, and afford the most breath-taking views (if you can stomach it). As with the single storey chalets, these ones have comfy chairs that are ideal for simply lounging around and enjoying the wonderful view. We spotted quite a few predatory birds flying over the gorge and it was simply amazing to watch a cloud drift past on the wind!
Two of the rooms have queen sized beds, while the rest have twins. The décor is simple and understated and doesn’t distract your attention from the great view. The rooms also come equipped with fans to keep you cool and comfortable during your stay.
