Victoria Falls is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and known by the local people as “Mosi-oa-Tunya”, meaning “the smoke that thunders”.
It lies on the boundary between Zambia and Zimbabwe in southern Africa and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Africa.
The mighty Zambezi River cascades over the falls edge, dropping 90 metres down into the Zambezi Gorge; sending a column of spray towering high into the air when the river is high. The town itself is known as the “Adrenalin Capital of Africa”, offering a vast array of fun activities for the whole family.

llala Lodge is a family-run boutique hotel that lies nestled in a lush garden on the Zimbabwe side of the Falls. It’s so close to the iconic waterfall that you can feel the spray on your face when sitting outside on the large terrace that runs the length of the front of the lodge.

Interleading doors into a deluxe and executive suite opens it up into a family suite suitable for 6 guest.
