It goes without saying that the executive suites are a cut above the rest; these suites feature a spacious living room, a large bathroom with double basins, and stunning floor-to-ceiling windows. In addition, both the deluxe rooms and suites boast large private balconies that overlook the lush hotel grounds and provide the ideal spot to watch the sun rise majestically over the falls.

As testament to its success, the new wing has enjoyed consistently high occupancy rates since it was launched. Sandi Nielsen from the Zambezi Traveller explains, “Bigger rooms with better views are reason to celebrate a new wave of investment in Victoria Falls.”

Both the newly-completed Victoria Falls International Airport and the new wing at Ilala Lodge Hotel are the first of many steps towards an overall revamp of the town.

In reference to the new wing and with the new airport in mind, Martin Vaughan, Ilala’s General Manager, said, “The lodge’s growth and expansion is directly proportionate to the demand we are experiencing.”

He went on to add, “With a New Year approaching, a new dawn looks imminent in the Zimbabwean tourism industry.”
