My previous visit to Lilayi was many years ago. Whilst pleasant enough it was clear the lodge required some serious renovation's.
In October this year (2013) I went again using Lilayi for overnight accommodation whilst journeying back from Livingstone to Luanshya.
What a wonderful surprise. Clearly, massive renovations had been done and the lodge is now an absolute credit to the owners/managers.
If I had one slight criticism it would be that the service is a little slow. That said, those of us who live in the wonderful continent are aware that not a lot happens quickly here.
I most definitely will choose Lilayi Lodge again when I need to "escape" for some battery re-charging.
