Outdoors, it’s all about the Falls, and the spray from this mass of cascading water is visible from most places at Ilala Lodge Hotel. The hotel is ideally situated being the closest to the mighty Victoria Falls as well as the lively town centre. There is no need to enlist the services of a guide to visit this magnificent sight, as the Falls are an easy 20 minute walk from this Victoria Falls lodge, allowing you to admire this natural wonder at your own leisurely pace.  The town itself is even closer and you will find many entertaining pastimes to enjoy in this dynamic hub of tourism. Victoria Falls activities offered by Ilala Lodge's activity provider Zambezi Wilderness Safaris include bungee jumping off the historic bridge, white water rafting down the Zambezi River, walking with lions, scenic helicopter flights over the Falls, and embarking upon a relaxing sunset cruise on a Ra-Ikane river cruiser.
The Victoria Falls National Park borders the front of the property and, as such, wild animals often graze on the lawns of this stunning example of Vic Falls hotels. Warthogs, in particular, are common visitors and their comical appearance and behaviours are sure to delight and entertain you during your stay. You might even be lucky enough to witness a herd of elephant feasting upon an array of trees while you relax on your private balcony.

The Palm Restaurant at Ilala Lodge offers the discerning guest a flavour fantasy at our world-class, á la carte Victoria Falls restaurant. Whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner, our dedicated service and kitchen staff will show you the true meaning of fine dining. Guests may dine inside in elegant splendour or on the patio of this exquisite Victoria Falls lodge, overlooking the gorgeous gardens and tranquil surrounding nature.
