About Ilala Lodge
Ilala Lodge Hotel is the perfect base from which to explore one of the World’s Seven Natural Wonders, the majestic Victoria Falls. A standout amongst Victoria Falls hotels and lodges, it provides distinguished, yet affordable, boutique accommodation in gracious and secluded surroundings. With just 56 rooms and suites on the property, guests can look forward to personalised service and world-class hospitality throughout the duration of their visit.
Ilala Lodge is ideally situated on the Zimbabwean side of the mighty Zambezi River, where it is the closest hotel to the magnificent Falls. Declared a World Heritage Site in 1989 and voted one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Victoria Falls are within easy walking distance for guests, as is the town centre. It is also the perfect spot from which to embark upon a voyage of discovery in one of Africa’s favourite tourist destinations. Here, historical sites, culinary experimentation and a host of activities in pristine natural surroundings are within your reach.
Explore the lush wilderness surrounding the town on a thrilling game drive, surf the rapids on a Zambezi River white water rafting expedition, get your heart racing when you bungee jump off the Victoria Falls bridge, or simply enjoy a legendary Zimbabwean sunset from the comfort of the Ra-Ikane river cruiser. These, and many more Victoria Falls activities are available directly from Ilala Lodge – a rarity within many Victoria Falls hotels and accommodation establishments. Simply visit the Activities Desk at the hotel to find out more.
Wild animals, such as warthog and impala, often graze on the hotel lawns and provide exciting entertainment for hotel guests. Restaurant diners, on the other hand, can see and hear the majestic roar of the ‘Smoke That Thunder’ while they sample Zimbabwe’s finest a la carte cuisine at The Palm Restaurant. With tranquil views, an elegant ambience, and an exceptional and diverse menu, dinner at the Palm Restaurant is an experience in and of itself.
Ilala Lodge Hotel Victoria Falls, perfectly located in the warm and welcoming heart of Zimbabwe’s tourism capital, invites you to discover exceptional hospitality and cheerful service.
