Great - once you get there!

Really great lodge - however, not for one night unless you want to see the city and life in the capital. The lodge, the food, the setting were great!

Expert Africa comments

"Our only comments are that the menu for lunch and dinner was the same and seemed to be the same each day so quite limited and a lighter lunch menu would have been better, also the lodge is a good hours drive from Lusaka airport."

Excellent Lodge in Lusaka

Lilayi Lodge is an excellent place to start a safari. Being able to walk around the grounds and see wildlife by yourself is an added attraction.

As is the elephant orphanage at the end of the road which the lodge are happy to drive you to.

The lodge is relaxing, quiet and friendly. The chalets are very well appointed.

We would definitely return.

Good flight recovery destination

Enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Had no plans to do any activities. Took great pleasure in the grounds and whatever wildlife happened to be there.

Food - Breakfast adequate. I was happy with fruit, yoghurt etc. so did not try cooked breakfasr. Light lunch and dinner very pleasant especially venison carpaccio. Bar staff very cheerful and waiters always willing if a little haphazard at times.

Housekeeping - above and beyond. I had forgotten to pack a hair item (inconsequential to most but not for me). One of the housekeeping staff said she would go to market at the end of her shift and send it back with the staff bus. It was delivered to my door a couple of hours later. Exemplary.

Room - Overjoyed to see a fan heater. I put it to good use! .Everything provided except a bathrobe which was a slight disappointment. (Provided everywhere else.)

A great stopping -off point in extremely nice surroundings.. Manager very welcoming...

great place to relax after long trip

My mum and I both really enjoyed our stay here.

Special highlights include the veranda on our private chalet and the deck off the restaurant area, both of which provided beautiful views of the grounds and animal-watching opportunities. My mum thought the pool was an exceptionally good one, in terms of size, cleanliness, ambiance. The food here was fantastic. Everything we ate was delicious and well presented. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Note - we did not take part in any activities here so can't comment on those.

relax in Lilayi Lodge

Lilayi Lodge was our , so called " home" in between the different bushcamps we visited.

It's a very good place to start and end your trip, especially when you have hours to wait for your flight.

The food is excellent except when there are big parties and the cook is too busy
