A perfect base from which to explore one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World


Providing distinguished, affordable boutique accommodation in the heart of Victoria Falls and only a stones throw away from the Falls itself, Ilala makes for the perfect stay.

Description, Services & Facilities

With only 56 rooms and suites on the property, guests can look forward to personalised service throughout their stay.  Ilala Lodge is perfectly located right next to the Zambezi River, and is the closest hotel to the magnificent Falls. Most of the activities that are done in the Falls area depart not far from the hotel so its a great hotel to be based at as its right in the centre of town.

Guests are often greeted by small game such as warthog and impala that often walk through the grounds grazing on the lush green grass.  If that's not enough of an atmosphere then dine in the restaurant and listen to the majestic roar of the 'Smoke That Thunder'.

Hotel Location


Standard Room


Decorated with railway teak furnishings, the standard rooms are a step back in time, which allows you to experience the grandeur of days gone by with each room having an en suite bathroom. The upper tier rooms open up to a private baloney while the double French doors open onto lush green communal gardens providing the opportunity to come across some of the wandering warthogs, Impala and sometimes Hippos grazing in the cool evenings. The properties décor enhances the African culture of this boutique hotel with its muted tones and soft furnishings in creams and browns.
