Ilala Lodge is the perfect base from which to explore one of the World's Seven Natural Wonders, the majestic Victoria Falls. The lodge is ideally situated on the Zimbabwean side of the mighty Zambezi River, and the Falls are within easy walking distance for guests, as is the town centre.
Victoria Falls has a lot to offer the visitor and is known as Africa's adventure capital. From high adrenalin activities like bungee jumping and white water rafting to more sedate pastimes like fishing or sunset river cruises, you can find it all here.
Wild animals, such as warthog and impala, often graze on the hotel lawns, providing added entertainment. Restaurant diners can see and hear the majestic roar of 'the smoke that thunders' while they sample fine a la carte cuisine at The Palm Restaurant.
All the rooms are spacious and some are decorated with teak furnishings made from railway sleepers. This decor enhances the African ambience and laid-back lodge atmosphere, and muted tones and soft furnishings mirror this uncomplicated, restful atmosphere. All rooms have views of the Falls.
The deluxe wing offers 16 deluxe rooms and one executive suite, catering to travellers looking for a bit more luxury for their stay at the Falls.
