Ilala Lodge, Victoria Falls Hotel


Ilala Lodge Hotel is perfectly placed to make the most of your Victoria Falls Holiday. Aside from elegant accommodation and fine dining, the hotel offers a number of onsite facilities for your enjoyment.  You can relax alongside the sparkling pool with a sundowner, hit the bar to discuss the day’s activities with fellow guests, take advantage of the Wi-Fi to update your online journal, enjoy an invigorating wellness treatment, or book your next big adventure at the activity centre.
This is our in house activity booking centre that can cater for any bookings or enquiries you might have.  All bookings can be made directly through our office and we can advise you on the best options.  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 elephant back safaris, Victoria Falls has it all.
A firm favourite amongst honeymooners from all over the planet, the romance of sunset cruises, the appeal of the great outdoors, the sight of a moonbow above the falls, and the fun of numerous unique activities make Victoria Falls the ideal destination for creating memories to last a lifetime.
Safari opportunities abound and a helicopter or micro light flip above the falls is an unforgettable excursion. Close by, Victoria Falls town provides a quaint diversion from all the excitement with its charming markets, friendly populace and cultural activities.
