Ilala Lodge



The Ilala Lodge is on the Zimbabwean side of the Victoria Waterfalls and within walking distance of the falls. It is 10 km from Livingstone and 75 km from Kasane. The Zambezi River forms the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia.


The Ilala Lodge is a luxurious yet affordable boutique hotel in beautiful gardens. It is within easy walking distance of the town centre and the Victoria Falls – one of the ‘Seven Natural Wonders of the World’. The lodge has 34 rooms, an award-winning restaurant and a pool.


The Ilala Lodge is the closest accommodation to the Victoria Falls and borders the Victoria Falls National Park – animals are often seen browsing in the garden. It offers 32 rooms and two deluxe suites, a swimming pool, a bar with pool bar and a laundry service. The “Palm” has won the 2011 Restaurant of the Year award. Free parking and luggage storage are available as well as small conference facilities and wireless internet access. The in-house travel office can book trips.


The spacious air-conditioned rooms have en-suite bathrooms, fan, satellite TV and tea/coffee making facilities. Standard rooms have twin beds but the suites have double beds and are more intimate. The rooms overlook either the sprawling lawns or the spray of the falls from the upper rooms’ balconies.
