Each of the 73 luxury rooms has been designed to create a feeling of privacy here in Victoria Falls. The rooms on the upper tier open out onto a private balcony, while the lower floor rooms open onto the lush manicured gardens where you can watch the warthogs graze from the hotel lawn.

The Deluxe Wing and the Pool Wing boast splendid views of the mesmerizing spray from Victoria Falls and the spectacular gardens that Ilala Lodge Hotel is famous for. The Garden Wing gives guests access to the lush and flourishing lawns where the animals visit.

The teak furnishings in all the rooms are made from local Zimbabwean railway sleepers, enhancing the hotel's African ambience and laid-back atmosphere. All the rooms in the hotel have high-quality cotton linens and luxurious pillows for ultimate comfort. Take your pick of a room and indulge in the world-class service at Ilala Lodge Hotel.

The hotel is perfectly positioned to explore the surrounds of Victoria Falls, and their activity desk will create an exciting activity itinerary for the duration of your stay as well as recommend things to do within walking distance.

Victoria Falls has a lot to offer visitors and is known as Africa’s adventure capital. From high adrenaline activities like bungee jumping off the Victoria Falls Bridge and white-water rafting down the Zambezi River to more sedate pastimes like Ra-Ikane river cruises, or fishing, there is something for everyone.

Victoria Falls is the perfect starting or ending point for Southern African safaris, allowing easy access to Zambia, Botswana, South Africa, and of course, Zimbabwe's wildlife-rich reserves, Hwange National Park or Mana Pools National Park.

Ra-Ikane River Cruise:

Relive the historical journey embarked by David Livingstone exploring the mighty Zambezi River aboard the Ra-Ikane fleet. Named after his instrumental guide, the boats represent the grace of a bygone era honouring the rich history of Victoria Falls and its explorers, adventurers and heroes. The Ra-Ikane offers a variety of cruises, including birdwatching, breakfast, lunch, sunset, and private charters.
