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. Our name was inspired by the Ila people, a cattle herding tribe residing in the valley of the Kafue River. Their distinctive hairstyle called ‘isusu’ was designed to allow fellow members of hunting or war parties to see each other over the tall grass of the Kafue floodplains. The style was formed with plaited hair stiffened with a sliver of antelope horn. The Ila weapon of choice was the spear and they used many differing varieties with much display of skill. Battles were generally with other tribes over stolen cattle.
