Beautiful Scenic & Quiet 🫂🫂🫂may be because of CV. Friendly staff. Beer was not cold. Location very close to Victoria Falls. Also for the helicopter ride if interested. Small pool to cool you off. Please ask barman to put your beers cold 🇱🇰🇱🇰🇱🇰

Loved the Ilala. We were in its standard room but I don't know what else we needed. Loved seeing animals wandering in the garden outside our room. Great service; great location. Wonderful buffet breakfast with added "entree". Dinner had lots of options.
