With the tantalising marriage between African fusion and contemporary cuisine, a visit to Lilayi’s
restaurant ensures an unforgettable experience. Dishes are prepared using only the freshest
produce - tender venison from Lilayi Game Farm whilst organic herbs and vegetables are sourced
from the Miller Family Farm. The in-house wine cellar boasts over 120 wines which have been handpicked
to enhance your dining experience.
Lilayi Lodge is proud to have a team of talented chefs and dedicated waiters, some of whom have
been at the lodge for over 20 years. We are committed to ensuring that all visits to Lilayi are unique
and personal. The Lodge is nestled amongst 650 hectares of unspoiled woodland, home to over 25
different species of mammals and 300 birds. Providing each of our visitors with a special African experience.
"The food is AMAZING! You won't believe the quality of the dishes here. Absolutely gold class. The presentation, the taste, and the wine pairings are second to none. Without a doubt the best meal you will ever eat in Zambia, possibly all of Africa."
