    This is a beautiful and relaxing hotel. The rooms are extremely comfortable and open onto beautiful green spaces. It is an excellent location to explore Victoria falls from. It is within walking distance of the Falls, restaurants, shopping etc.

    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.
