Established in 1988 and enveloped in rich cultural history, the game farm consists of a 650 hectare plot of land situated within the Miller Lilayi Farm. As a family owned business, Lilayi has belonged to the Miller family for over 100 years, which has seen the original farmhouse registered as a Zambian Heritage House in 1996.
A unique experience reserved exclusively for Lilayi Lodge in-house guests is the Behind The Scenes tour of the Lilayi Elephant Nursery. Guests are guided through the camp where they are given an intimate explanation of the Elephant Orphanage Project, followed by a walk in the bush with the elephants.
Lilayi offers 650 hectares of unspoiled grassland, which is inhabited by nearly 23 different species of mammal and more than 300 bird species. A game drive in an open vehicle is one of the most exciting ways to explore the area. A highly skilled guide will accompany safari goers, and inform them about the rare and beautiful animals viewed during the drive. Guests have the option to explore the area on foot by means of a guided walk. A bush walk enables visitors to be close to nature and creates an excellent opportunity for birdwatchers to view the abundance of bird species. For the more adventurous, Lilayi offers a horseback safari. From this elevated position visitors can expect to view an abundance of wild life including zebra, giraffe, wildebeest and a wide variety of antelope.
