The gardens and surrounds are immaculate. It was lovely having warthogs grazing outside our lodge with various buck coming to drink from the water feature. We enjoyed being able to go for walks around the game park when we felt like it, and were impressed by the amount of wildlife. The lodge was very comfortable. I particularly liked the bath - it was the perfect shape to lie in and read a good book!

I have had an amazing stay at lilayi lodge and I wish I could have stayed longer. It’s a place I would recommend to family and friends. The food is amazingly delicious and the customer service is so amazing. Tom the gentleman at the reception is so good with customer service and makes one feel at home. If I had my own company he’s the guy I would employe as my relations manager. He’s good. Mapopa and George are so good with their services. Wow your team is outstanding. Thank you lilayi you have been outstanding.

We spent a night here as part of a business organized trip. Lilayi pulled out all the stops - game drive, sundowners at the 'look-out' over the stream, a fabulous meal and a morning walk. Added to that were the luxurious rooms...... We had a great time and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone wanting a good experience close to Lusaka
