    We loved our stay at Ilala Lodge. The hotel is only a short walk to the falls which are so impressive in full flow. The spray can be seen from the balcony of your room across the hotel grounds which is home to many warthogs...More

    We had a great time here! The rooms were really nice and the staff went out of their way to look after us and provide us with everything we needed. A really good place to come and relax and enjoy the wonders of nature.

    This hotel is within walking distance of the falls. What is especially nice is that the hotels hire security guards. The street vendors are very aggressive so we really appreciated the guards who walked us to and then back from our walk to the falls....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.
