Ilala Lodge Package
Ilala Lodge is a stylish, understated colonial safari lodge within walking distance of the Victoria Falls. The property borders on the Zambezi National Park, allowing for some of the park’s resident wildlife to graze on the lodge’s green lawns. We saw a troupe of warthog running around, just as we arrived at the lodge. Upon arrival guests are presented with moist towels and a refreshing welcome drink. The reception area is very vibrant and welcoming and not at all ‘stiff’ like some hotels. The reception staff are exceptionally helpful and greet you with a smile every time you happen to pass by. Ilala is privately owned and has a certain old-time charm to it. This is apparent in the colonial-style furniture and décor of the hotel, like the old-fashioned typewriter and wall hangings depicting the adventures of Livingstone and his contemporaries. The hotel has a nice swimming pool with a wooden sun-deck and an attractive poolside pub. At night the lights of the pub reflect on the pool, creating an almost magical effect. The main buildings have been built to allow natural air to flow effortlessly through the passages in order to keep everything nice and cool. One of the perks of the hotel is its close proximity to the nearby town of Victoria Falls, only 5 minutes’ walk away. Not only do you save money on transfers and taxi’s, but you also get to enjoy the fresh air. (The same goes for the falls which are only a 10 minute walk away). One thing that needs mentioning though – is the many hawkers that frequent the path to the falls, selling their various hand crafted goods. They are harmless but can be a bit of a pain – so if you think that they might put you off, we suggest taking a taxi to the falls instead. Luckily the town council knows about this and have appointed lots of tourist police to patrol the area. It’s quite amusing to see the hawkers scatter when they spot one of these men or women in blue.
