Welcome to the Southern Africa

When you arrive at the Victoria Falls International Airport, you will be met and transported to the Ilala Lodge. The view from your room looks across the lawns to the national parks - where elephants, warthog impala or the occasional buffalo might be passing by or simply grazing on the lawn or in the tree line.

This will be your home for the next three nights with breakfast included. Victoria Falls offers a range of exciting activities such as scenic flights over the falls in a helicopter or microlight, bungee jumping off the Victoria Bridge, sunset cruises and of course no visit is complete without a Tour of the Falls.
