Travelling to Zimbabwe is a smooth experience with Kenya Airways’ direct flight from Cape Town to Victoria Falls town. As a single traveller, being able to fly directly from the Mother City to one of nature’s wonders eliminates the strain of connecting flights, making it ideal for parents who travel with children too. Ilala Lodge was home for our first night. The hotel has an authentic African ambience wrapped in luxury, stylish rooms ensuring ultimate comfort. With high ceilings made from thatched grass, Ilala Lodge is the perfect venue for a getaway in Vic Falls. The Victoria Falls National Park borders the front of the property and wild animals often graze on the hotel lawns. I was lucky enough to observe a herd of bull elephants on the lawn, as well as warthogs playfully darting through the gardens.
