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. You may even be lucky enough to have a visit from an elephant.

You can choose rooms in the Deluxe Wing, the Garden Wing or the Pool Wing. The Deluxe Wing and the Pool Wing boast splendid views of the spray from Victoria Falls as well as the spectacular gardens that Ilala Lodge Hotel is famous for. The Garden Wing gives you access to the lush lawns where the animals visit.

Teak furnishings in all the rooms are made from local Zimbabwean railway sleepers, enhancing the African ambiance and laid-back atmosphere of the hotel. All the rooms in the hotel have high-quality cotton linens and luxurious pillows for your ultimate comfort.

The spacious Standard double and twin rooms look towards the Victoria Falls and the National Park and have either a private patio or a seating area on the lawn facing the falls. There are often wild animals grazing on the lawns in front of the rooms.

The Deluxe double and twin rooms have a private patio with sliding doors from the bedrooms with magnificent views of the sun rising over the Victoria Falls.

Lastly, the Strathearn Suite has an ensuite bedroom, lounge, kitchen and a private balcony where you can enjoy a large spa bath with views of the spray rising above the Falls. Included is a private balcony dining experience, a complimentary in-room couples’ massage and a breakfast or lunch cruise onboard the hotel’s luxury cruise boat, the Ra-Ikane River Cruise. The suite can also be used as a comfortable and spacious family villa via a pair of interleading doors into a secondary suite and deluxe guest room.
