While a visit to the spectacular Victoria Falls is certainly the focus of a stay at the Ilala Lodge Hotel, there are many other ways to spend your free time.

The Ilala Lodge Hotel is characterised by elegance, high comfort, excellent service and its fantastic location at the world-famous Victoria Falls. These can be heard and seen from the hotel; it is only a few minutes' walk to the falls themselves. The park itself is occasionally visited for grazing by wild animals from the neighbouring Victoria Falls National Park. So it might happen that you can observe impalas, warthogs or even an elephant with a small snack while sunbathing on one of the sunbeds. And the city centre of Victoria Falls is only half a kilometre from Ilala, so that in addition to a visit to the falls and other exciting outdoor activities, cultural excursions can also be enjoyed in an uncomplicated way.
