We stayed as part of a Botswana/Zimbabwe Safari ending with a trip to the falls. The Ilala Lodge was a comfortable place to end our trip, the room was under the dining terrace with doors out to the lawn with resident Warthog and Mongoose family. Food and service were top notch with a relaxed atmosphere. Would I stay there again,... More

A good restaurant with good setting. Waiters friendly and food above average. We had an African risotto as a starter, and deboned oxtail stew and warthog steak cooked to medium well, both excellently done. Shall go back. Recommended!

We had two dinners at the Palm during our stay. Menu included a nice variety of items and we had fun trying 'exotic' meats- the warthog was delicious as was the croc risotto and the springbok somosa. The only dish we felt was so-so was the tilapia- a bit 'fishy' for our tastes. A very nice wine selection, and some... More

Super food, nice portions, great breakfast buffet. Relaxed service, nice piano player at dinner. Interesting exotic meats, but also good vegetarian options. Chef was friendly and accommodating with requests for gluten-free dishes. A bit cold on the balcony in the winter; you can reserve an indoor table if you prefer.

This restaurant is a cut above. Everything was perfect. The dishes were creative and delicious. The piano player was superb, playing the most beautiful piano renditions of Bob Marley songs.
