Ilala Lodge offers distinguished yet affordable accommodation in warm elegant surroundings. The decor evokes an era of early adventure and the quest for discovery in Africa. All the communal guest areas exude a colonial atmosphere with antiques, curios and unusual prints which continue the theme of African adventure and sophisticated indulgence from times gone by.
Outdoors, it’s all about the falls, and the spray from this mass of falling 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 town centre. There is no need to enlist the services of a guide to visit this worthwhile sight, as the Falls are an easy 20 minute walk from the property, so you can admire this natural wonder at your own pace. Victoria Falls town is even closer and you will find many entertaining pastimes to enjoy in this lively tourist town.
The National Park borders the front of the property and wild animals often graze on the hotel lawns, with the spray of the falls in the background. Warthogs are common visitors and their comical appearance and behaviours are sure to delight and entertain you during your stay.
The two onsite restaurants, The Palm Restaurant and Kubika, will satisfy all your culinary cravings with glorious buffet breakfasts and a la carte menus offering Moroccan themed dishes, and international versions of local delicacies such as warthog fillet, crocodile risotto, kudu steaks and crocodile quenelles.
Guests may dine inside in elegant splendour or on the patio overlooking magnificent nature and gorgeous gardens.
