    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.

    Hi. the hotel is a 5 min walk from the Victoria Falls entrance. the entrance fee is $30pp per entry. The Zimbabwe side of the falls has most of the viewing especially during the dry season (May to November).
