    This is a great hotel. The rooms are very good and all faced Victoria Falls. The Pal Restaurant at the hotel was excellent. We had a great dinner there. The staff were very helpful and they packed our purchases of curios very well for us...More

    Ilala Lodge was a delight, after a 30-hour trip. The room was charming, in a wing off the main hotel, very private. From our deck we could see the mist from the falls, and watch the wart hog action on the grounds below. The bed...More

    Hello Ian, Your agent should have organised an airport transfer as part of your package. I have emailed them to ensure that this has been done but normally this is the case. Look forward to welcoming you to Ilala Lodge.

    Hi, The walk to the falls entrance from the hotel is anywhere between 10-15min walk. I would recommend that we organise a taxi or transportation to the falls though.
