Located on the Zimbabwean side of the mighty Zambezi River, Ilala Lodge is geographically the closet hotel to the magnificent Victoria Falls, with easy access to the center of Victoria Falls town too.

The Lodge is a family-run boutique hotel that offers luxury and comfort in the heart of Victoria Falls.  Nestled in attractive gardens, the well-appointed hotel is a mere eight-minute walk from Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Guests also have access to all the historical sites, restaurants and activities available in Victoria Falls, which is buzzing with a new lease on life!

The award-winning Palm Restaurant at Ilala Lodge is famous for its delicious gourmet cuisine and attracts guests worldwide. Diners can see the spray and hear the sounds of Victoria Falls, locally known as the ‘Smoke That Thunders’, while they enjoy the al-fresco dining under the starry African skies. Wild animals, such as warthog and impala, often graze on the hotel lawns and entertain guests during mealtime.

At this luxury Victoria Falls establishment the 56 rooms are designed to create a feeling of privacy. The rooms on the upper tier open out onto a private balcony, while the lower floor rooms open onto the lush manicured gardens, where you can watch the warthogs graze from the hotel lawn. You may even be lucky enough to have a visit from an elephant…

The teak furnishings in all the rooms are made from local Zimbabwean railway sleepers, enhancing the African ambiance and laid-back atmosphere of the Lodge.  All the rooms have high-quality cotton linens and luxurious pillows for your ultimate comfort.
