At Ilala Lodge Hotel, you will be transported into a wonderland of astounding scenery, verdant flora and abundant wildlife that has been attracting admirers for centuries. Found a mere 20 minute walk from the mighty Victoria Falls Zimbabwe, this stunning lodge is the ideal base from which to explore all that this World Wonder has to offer.
Victoria Falls, on the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, has some of the most breathtaking views you’ll encounter on the African continent. From the wild banks of the Zambezi River, and the animals that call the banks home, to the world-famous spray and exceptional Victoria Falls activities offered in the area, a trip to the Falls is nothing short of exceptional.
The Victoria Falls history is multi-dimensional and shapes how we experience this natural wonder today. For many years, travellers have been wowed by the unearthly beauty of the magnificent Falls. As Dr Livingstone once said many years ago, when gazing upon the Victoria Falls, he saw: “scenes so lovely they must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight.”
The massive sheet of falling water and the spray it produces is both mesmerizing and awe-inspiring. The dense rain forest on the Zimbabwean side of the Falls is an enigma. Housing over 400 plant species, and teeming with small antelope, primates and birds, it is reason enough to visit. The nearby Victoria Falls National Park, and the towns of Victoria Falls and Livingstone, offer additional pleasures to the discerning visitor. Here you can enjoy an excess of adventurous and nature-based activities, from laid-back walks and cultural trips, to the adrenaline rush of rafting and bungee jumping. For more information about all the exciting things to do in the area, be sure to visit our Victoria Falls blog.
Victoria Falls Zimbabwe is a welcoming town with friendly locals eager to show you around, warthogs wandering the streets and baboons playing in the trees. Unique in nature, it is a memorable little place to visit. Ilala Lodge’s ideal placement, and accomplished team, make it the best Vic Falls Lodge for travellers interested in an extraordinary all-round experience of Victoria Falls.
