Ila Safari Lodge is a true eco-lodge providing facilities of the highest quality to a maximum of 24 guests. The lodge is located on the banks of the mighty Kafue River in an area of abundant wildlife and boasts 180 degree views out across the water.

The central boma is best described by the phrase ‘eco friendly meets dynamic design’ and is the showpiece of our property. Ila Safari Lodge has 10 state of the art luxury safari tents perched each on their own deck reaching out over the banks of the Kafue River.

Included in our 10 top-notch tenats are 2 larger family suites. 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.

All tents feature en suite bathrooms and either outside showers or baths. Beds are extra length for the most comfortable nights sleep. Mosquito nets are spacious and billowing and are turned down for you each evening.

Take a dip in the cutting edge designer pool, dine on mouth-watering cuisine, kick back and enjoy a book or just watch the world go by with an ice cold drinks in hand from the lounge.
