A stones throw from Victoria Falls, Ilala Lodge is the perfect base to explore all that this area has to offer.
Beautifully styled with railway teak furnishings the rooms radiate elegance from a bygone era but with all the mod cons one would expect from a luxury hotel. Ground floor rooms offer direct access to the verdant gardens where animals can often be found grazing, whilst the upper floor rooms feature private balconies with views towards the Falls.
The Palm Restaurant offers an unrivalled al-fresco dining experience under the starlit African sky and with the sound of the Falls in the background. The menu features unusual local dishes such as Crocodile Frikadelle and the Blesbok Shank alongside international favourites all of which are complemented by an extensive list of South Africa’s finest wines, cocktails and artisan gins.
It goes without saying that many activities revolve around the Falls themselves and the Black Opal Team will be happy to offer suggestions based on their first-hand experience of the many attractions in the area.
