Ilala Lodge 4*

The perfect base from which to explore one of the World’s Seven Natural Wonders, the majestic Victoria Falls. Accommodation at Ilala Lodge Hotel is distinguished yet affordable in a gracious and secluded setting.

Ilala Lodge Hotel is ideally situated on the Zimbabwean side of the mighty Zambezi river, and is the closest hotel to the magnificent Victoria Falls. The falls, recently voted one of the World’s Seven Natural Wonders, are within easy walking distance for guests, as is the Victoria Falls town centre. Wild animals often graze on the hotel lawns and restaurant diners can see the spray of the falls in the background while they listen to the majestic roar of “the smoke that thunders” and enjoy Zimbabwe’s finest cuisine in Ilala’s Palm Restaurant.
