Ilala Lodge Hotel is a family-run hotel with friendly, attentive staff, and offers luxury and comfort amid beautifully landscaped gardens. Ilala Lodge Hotel is ideally located just an eight-minute walk from Victoria Falls, one of the seven Natural Wonders of the World – so close that the spray from the Victoria Falls can be seen from numerous places at the hotel.

Each air-conditioned guest room at Ilala Lodge has a seating area, en suite bathroom and satellite TV, and every room has its own balcony or patio, so guests can truly absorb the sights and sounds of the natural surrounds. Wild animals often graze on the hotel lawns; warthogs, in particular, are common visitors and with luck guests may also witness elephants feasting on the trees! The hotel’s facilities also include a large outdoor pool and sun terrace for guests’ reinvigoration and relaxation, with the Poolside Bar to hand for some ice-cold refreshment.

Dining options

The Palm Restaurant at Ilala Lodge Hotel offers breakfast, lunch and dinner and is one of the top-rated restaurants in Victoria Falls. Diners can choose from a range of specialities, including locally-sourced game and international favourites. For an idyllic, unforgettable experience, dine al fresco under starry African skies, surrounded by the sound of the distant thunder of Victoria Falls.
