Ilala Lodge

Ilala is a distinguished and upmarket hotel situated within 5 minutes walk of the Victoria Falls……….


It is one of the small privately owned Victoria Falls lodges, situated within walking distance of the mighty Victoria Falls and the town centre. The
Lodge offers upmarket accommodation in a gracious and secluded ambiance and the décor evokes a feeling of adventure and romance.

Borders the Zambezi National Park and one can often see warthog and other wild animals grazing on the lawn…

On arrival in the vibrant reception area you are served with a long cold drink and made to feel welcome in this small and personal lodge.

The hotel grounds are secluded and well maintained and borders the Zambezi National Park and one can often see warthog and other wild animals grazing on the lawn.

The hotel has a large terrace running along the front of it and the view from here, of the never ending spray from the Falls, is enchanting.

The swimming pool has a large wooden sun deck perfect to sit around and soak up a bit of the African sun.

In late 2015, an entirely new section of the hotel was build to increase capacity. Ilala Lodge went from having 32 standard and deluxe rooms to 56 rooms which now include regular suites and executive suites, still holding that personalised and intimate level of service and attention to detail. All the
rooms are fitted with attractive railway (tie) sleeper furniture adding a magical touch of Africa.

We would suggest that this hotel is best suited to the slightly more mature traveller, because of the quiet and peaceful ambiance.
