Best Date Spots in Victoria Falls

By Ilala Lodge on February 24, 2017

The Victoria Falls certainly packs a punch as one of the most romantic and scenic destinations on the continent. A mixture of full-blown adrenaline, astounding natural wonders and unapologetic colonial-charm, Victoria Falls will certainly get your romantic juices flowing.

Walk through the Rainforest at Victoria Falls

Pack an umbrella and head to the rainforest at the heart of the Victoria Falls National Park in Zimbabwe. Prepare to get wet by a steady rain of spray rising up from the swirling waters at the bottom of Batoka Gorge.

A walk in the rainforest offers a great opportunity to huddle close under the protection of an umbrella and admire the view from more than 15 viewpoints along the rainforest pathways.

Sunset Cruise on the Ra-Ikane

There are few things more memorable in Zimbabwe than enjoying a sunset on the Zambezi River, with a cold drink in hand with the person you love most. There’s something about the motion of the river, the colours of a dusty sunset and the indulgence aboard the Ra-Ikane that makes this such an unforgettable experience.

Ra-Ikane Sunset Cruises are $75 per person sharing and depart at 16h00 in the summer and 15h30 in the winter. The cruise includes a brief history of the river, delicious snacks and a fully-stocked bar. All reservations can be made at Ilala Lodge: +263(13) 44737/8/9 |

The Lookout Café

The Lookout Café is 120 metres above the Zambezi, overhanging the gaping Batoka Gorge just around the corner from the Victoria Falls. The Lookout Café is a great daytime date spot, offering fresh breakfast and lunch options with one of the best views in Victoria Falls. And if the conversation fails you can always check out the brave souls trying out the gorge swing and bungee jump in front of the café.

Flight of Angels

If your budget allows it, a helicopter trip over the Victoria Falls is an absolute must for couples looking for a little romance. The aptly named ‘Flight of Angels’ is an exhilarating experience to share with a special someone and an unforgettable memory to talk about for years to come. The Activity Desk at Ilala can also help you arrange this.
