Bordering the national park, Ilala Lodge is the closest property to the entrance of the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and is in easy walking distance. Whilst the hotel also has a great central location in Victoria Falls town, wild antelope are often found grazing on the lawns in front of the property. The hotel has just 32 en suite, standard rooms, all spacious and furnished with classic style furniture made from reclaimed teak railway sleepers. The rooms have air conditioning and patio-style doors that open onto the lawn or a balcony. There is a pool, bar and 24 hour WiFi and email facilities. Awarded Restaurant of the Year for 2011 in Zimbabwe, The Palm Restaurant offers a la carte dining, and opens out on to the lawns where you can dine to the sound of the nearby falls.
