Ila Safari Lodge is a luxury eco-lodge located right on the threshold of Kafue National Park in Zambia. The lodge is set on the banks of the Kafue River in an area of abundant wildlife.
Ten state of the art luxury safari tents are strung out along the riverbank, each situated on their own individual deck. We offer doubles, twins and two family tents.
Each tent has been individually designed to mesh with the flora surrounding it providing shade, privacy and your very own piece of Kafue wilderness. The interiors as well as the private decks are furnished in chic, modern African style and every comfort has been considered.
Our central boma is best described by the phrase ‘eco friendly meets dynamic design’ and is the showpiece of our property. Designed from inception to provide top notch facilities for 24 guests, this half moon shaped building boasts a stunning modern pool, an open-air restaurant, bar and lounge with 180 degree views out over the river, a boat jetty and a fire pit drop deck area for after dinner gatherings under the stars.
Kafue is renowned for it diversity of wildlife and pristine untouched wilderness. We offer game drives, boat cruises, walking safaris, fishing, stargazing and back of house tours to showcase our ‘eco’ credentials. All of our activities take place within the national park and are led by guides who are masters of their craft.
Ila Safari Lodge is the proud owner of Zambia’s first electronic Land Rover (eLandy) and also operate an electronic boat (eBoat). Amongst other ‘green’ endeavours we also operate 100% on solar and run our own biogas plant.
