“Ilala Lodge is centered in the middle of Victoria Falls town and so you are in walking distance of all banks, numerous curio vendors and various shops, restaurants and tour operators offering various activities. The reception I received was warm and friendly and you get a good feel when entering the hotel. The well appointed reception area leads onto a large patio area which overlooks the gardens. The gardens lead into the national park and so wildlife wander onto the hotel lawns and whilst sitting outside we saw warthog and various buck. Whilst sitting outside enjoying a drink you can hear the roar of the mighty Falls which are well within walking distance of the lodge….”
“The hotel was absolutely fantastic. We had a really great time with other friends, relaxing by the pool and having great meals on the terrace. The rooms were also top notch. It is located close to the Falls and within walking distance of other restaurants. Highly recommended”
“From the copious breakfast to the delicious dinners, the comfortable rooms (with patio) and the wildlife roaming over the grounds (warthogs, hippos, hornbills, to name just a few), this was the perfect place to visit for Victoria Falls. The national park was only a short walk away, as were a pharmacy, other restaurants, and many shops. The Lodge helped us easily arrange a sunset boat trip on the Zambesi river and a helicopter ride over the falls. All staff was friendly and helpful.”
“I travelled with my daughter, we started our holiday with a visit to the majestic Victoria Falls. Ilala lodge was the perfect place since is so close to the park. The lodge is beautifully decorated with photographs and art in homege to the falls, the explorers, the people, the fauna and the flora of this exotic region. Our room was comfortable and spacious, nicely decorated and with a very pretty view of the gardens. The staff was friendly and the food was great.”
