We wanted an experience of a lifetime and we certainly got one, staying five nights at Ila Lodge. It is, without doubt, the most luxurious and glorious place to stay. Our "tent" was a slice of paradise, nestling on the banks of the Kafue river, replete with resident Hippos who p

Hi there Wow, thank you so much for such a wonderful review! We are absolutely delighted to have hosted you and that you had such a wonderful time. This is a particularly stunning time of year as you have experienced and we literally fall over the animals. Every new game drive is an adventure. I will pass your comments onto the staff, in particular Humphrey and Joe. We look forward to your next visit here in the Kafue! Warm regards The Ila Team

Hi Mike Many thanks for your wonderful review and we had a great time hosting you albeit such a short visit! Our sightings continue to be spectacular with 3 cheetah and 3 leopard on today's drive. Needless to say, we have a very happy camp at the moment. Yes the elephant is still making himself at home. Well, I should rather say "his" home as we are surely just visitors and we are delighted he welcomes us! We look forward to you welcoming you back in the Kafue in the near future. Warm regards The Ila Team

Hi, do you have an email ad I can reach you on? I am planning a family holiday for the start of September and would like to find out more about this accommodation.
Is it available next weekend
Hi We are delighted you wish to come and stay with us and thank you for your enquiry! I am not sure if you received my message this morning as we have not had internet available today so please forgive me if this is a repeat email. Sadly we are fully booked on these dates at the moment but if you are able to send me your email address I can keep you posted on any cancellations plus send you rates in case your dates are at all flexible. Wishing you a splendid weekend! Regards The Ila Team
