Come and explore remote and wild Kafue National Park, Zambia’s largest and oldest park in the country, and one of the largest in the whole of Africa, on this 4-day fully inclusive African safari package. Luxuriate at the beautiful Ila Safari Lodge. Named after the local Ila people, the lodge sits on the banks of Zambia’s Kafue River. A true eco-lodge accommodating up to a maximum of 24 guests, it lies in an area of abundant wildlife, and is a comfortable 3.5 hours drive from Lusaka. Indulge in one of the 10 state-of- the-art luxury safari tents perched on its own private deck reaching out over the banks of the river. Each room has been individually designed to merge into the surrounding bush providing shade and privacy. The interiors and private decks are furnished in chic, modern African style with every comfort. All feature en-suite bathrooms and either outside showers or baths. Daily activities include game drives, boat cruises, walking safaris and fishing, with regular sightings of lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, a wide range of antelopes, zebra, hippo, crocodile, warthog, genet, jackal, mongoose, entertaining baboons and monkeys and a myriad of birds. A truly ‘green’ lodge, all is powered by solar including the boat used for river cruises and one of the game drive vehicles – the e-landy, Zambia’s first electronic Land Rover! It is wonderful to be able to quietly approach the wildlife, allowing you to hear the sounds of the bush without engine noise! It is charged from the lodge’s solar system and needs no fuel. There is more than sufficient power in the batteries for both the morning and evening safaris. Adding to the ‘green experience’, you can drift quietly on the river for the traditional sun-downer drinks and snacks in Ila’s very own ‘e-boat’! The only sound you will hear is the lapping of the water on the hull, allowing bird watchers and river game spotters the chance to get up close without disturbing the animals and birds.
Price includes: 3 nights accommodation, return road transfers from Lusaka, unlimited activities (game drives, boat cruises, walking safaris, fishing), all meals, all drinks, Kafue National Park Fees, Conservation levy and laundry.
* Valid between 1st July – 31st Oct 2017
