Ultra-modern and environmentally friendly, Ila Safari Lodge offers first-class luxury tents and lavish amenities with a strong commitment to conservation.
Ila’s location on the banks of the Kafue River in Kafue National Park is wonderfully convenient. Situated just a one hour flight from Lusaka’s airport or a three hour drive from Zambia’s capital city, Ila Safari Lodge is the perfect base to roam deeper into the Kafue National Park.
Founded in 2016, the lodge was built with a focus on sustainability. There are ten luxury tents designed to melt into their surroundings, made with locally sourced wood and khaki canvas walls. Each tent is perched on stilts with their own private deck overlooking the river.
Blending traditional construction with modern African styling, the tents boast some incredible amenities including an outdoor shower and bath with views over the river.
There are two spacious family suites with separate sleeping areas and ensuite bathrooms, perfect for groups or families.
The main camp area is an open-sided thatched chalet with an open-air restaurant, comfortable seating, a cosy fire-pit and a stunning infinity pool overlooking the river.
Ila Safari Lodge offers a wide variety of activities that will keep everyone entertained. Explore the Kafue National Park with a thrilling game drive or an immersive walking safari into the bush.
Take advantage of your idyllic river location with a boat cruise or a fishing trip or get involved with the Ila’s fantastic conversation programs.
