Nestled in beautiful gardens in the heart of Victoria Falls, you’ll find this luxurious family-run hotel. Ideally located, it’s just a short walk from the falls themselves and offers guests easy access to a variety of historical sites, places of interest and restaurants. Located on the Zimbabwean side of the Zambezi River, the hotel is geographically the closest the Victoria Falls.

Rooms on the upper-tier boast their own private balconies, while those on the lower floor open onto the exquisitely manicured gardens. Look out for visiting wildlife like warthogs, and even the occasional elephant!

Dining at the award-winning Palm Restaurant is definite highlight of any stay at Ilala Lodge Hotel. Savour gourmet dishes beneath the starry African sky with the falls so close you can see the spray and hear the thundering waters. Mealtimes are often made even more special by the arrival of grazing impala and warthogs on the hotel lawns.

Head out into the lush wilderness on a game drive, enjoy some thrilling white-water rafting on the Zambezi, take the plunge as you bungee jump off Victoria Fall Bridge, or get the best view from Devil’s Pools right at the edge of the falls.
