Established in 1989, the game farm consists of a 650 hectare plot of land situated within the Miller Farm. Having initially been used as a cattle farm, Springvale Farm was bought in 1975 by Peter Miller. It was renamed ‘Lilayi Game Farm’ and numerous varieties of wildlife introduced.
This area of unspoilt grassland and woodland on the outskirts of Lusaka is renowned for its pristine trees as well as being home to more than 500 plains animals. Lilayi Lodge was officially opened in November 1991 and has been well known as one of Lusaka's main attractions for many years. In 2013 the Miller Family decided to completely renovate this iconic piece of Zambian History and create a first class establishment that showcases the best that Zambia has to offer.

The Lilayi Elephant Nursery, located at the entrance to game farm, is a project that is very dear to the family’s heart. Having a long history in supporting wildlife conservation, two hectares of land was donated to Game Rangers International - a non-profit organisation. Through this partnership Lilayi Game Farm has become home to a number of orphaned elephants that have seen the loss of their families due to poaching.
