Very comfortable

Our room was attractive and comfortable, and we could see the "smoke" from the falls from our porch, and walk there in 15 minutes.

The food in the lodge's restaurant was very good, with local specialties like crocodile, warthog and kudu.

We were told there would be construction going on during our stay, and to make up for it, they offered a breakfast cruise on the Zambezie river. The construction turned out to be barely noticeable, and the cruise was wonderful - we saw two herds of elephants play in the river.

Ilala Lodge review

This was our second stay at Ilala Lodge and it is a very good and convenient place to spend a night in Vic Falls.

Rooms are spacious and comfortable and the restaurant is excellent.

Nice hotel for our last night

We stopped at Ilala on our last night after 6 nights in Hwange National Park. It suited our needs perfectly. Close to town to purchase last minute souvenirs and to have a lovely meal at The Three Monkeys.

The ample and delicious breakfast set us up perfectly for our long haul flight home to the UK.

Pleasant stay at Illala Lodge

It is a rather large hotel but the staff is welcoming, the rooms comfortable and the food very good. I truly enjoyed the relaxing birdwatching / breakfast cruise.

Really good lodge

Although they are building nearby to extend the lodge and gave us a free river trip to make up for this, it was not a problem for us, as it was a national holiday so no work was going on. The building is quite close to some (but not all) of the rooms so could be intrusive for guests staying in those rooms as it develops, although a high screen has been erected.

We really liked Ilala Lodge - the staff were very pleasant and we had a lovely room overlooking the falls in the distance. Dinner was very good- we loved sitting outside under the stars!
