Prepare to be patient...
Took us nearly an hour to get checked in, as our room wasn't ready at check in time. Also took nearly an hour for our breakfast orders to be served. The lodge is lovely, but service needs serious work.

Fantastic experience !!
It was excellent ! It is a hotel made of typical African huts in a game reserve. Absolutely a marvelous experience amidst nature ! Great friendly service. The food was excellent. But there is one thing they really need to improve: the restaurant closes 9 pm with last orders 8:30 pm, and this is ludicrous. My first day I didn’t manage to be back in time so pre-ordered food, which was served on the veranda of my very beautifully, but was cold by the time I got there. My second and third day I had to pre-order at the last minute (lot of stress) while rushing. I really think the restaurant should be opened until 11 pm at the very least — giving people the option to have a more relaxed holiday and enjoy the African nights as much as the day.

Lovely Retreat
We really enjoyed our stay at Lilayi Lodge. The room was quite tidy and comfortable. The food at the restaurant was delicious. Unfortunately, the lodge must have had some sort of staffing shortages while we were there because we had to wait 2 and a half hours to check in to our room, even though we had arrived after 2pm. We also had to wait a long time for service at the bar and restaurant. We've been there before and not had trouble, so I am assuming it was just a short staffed weekend. The grounds are great for kids - with a playground and walking trails.

Highly recommend
Delightful lodge, so close to the city but totally peaceful and relaxing. Great food and fantastic staff. We stayed for two nights and they even made a delicious takeaway breakfast for us when we had to leave very early. Will definitely return!
