    Very nice modern facilities, convenient location, good food, everything works. Solid 4* hotel in a town that doesn't have too many of them. There was a slight hiccup in evening restaurant service when they were very busy, other than that great service.

    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.
