Situated in unquestionably one of the best game viewing areas in the Africa, Inyati Game Lodge Reserve offers you the ultimate experience combining wildlife and comfort.
The Sabi Sand reserve is home to the `Big Five` (elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and buffalo), as well as cheetah, wild dog and hundreds of other species of animals, birds and plants indigenous to the area. View Africas most impressive wildlife on morning and afternoon/evening game drives in open 4-wheel drive safari vehicles with expert guides and Shangaan trackers.
Game drives traverse an area of 10 000 hectares (24 700 acres) and strict vehicle limits at sighting ensure the exclusivity of your game viewing experience.
