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 Africa’s 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. Off-road driving ensures that you have the best possible view of any exceptional sighting and guides are constantly in touch with each other to keep track of animal movements.
Guests can also enjoy interpretive guided bush walks offering the bird watcher, dendrologist, botanist and the nature enthusiast the ultimate bush experience.
Inyati’s superbly positioned guest sitting and dining areas overlook the perennial Sand River proving a plentiful supply of water especially during the dry winter months. The river provides water for wildlife from as far away as the Kruger National Park during this time. Other facilities available - the Warthog hollow bar, swimming pool, air-conditioned gym and walk-in wine cellar.
Our traditional boma is used on nights, (weather permitting) and is a truly memorable way to experience a safari evening under the African night sky.Accommodation at Inyati Private Game Reserve:

Inyati is a wonderful experience and is certainly worth the visit. The staff are very friendly and truly make every game drive and moment an experience of its own. We had wonderful game viewing and superb service from the rangers and trackers.

We had a perfect and exciting stay in this game reserve. Everything was excellent from the very friendly personnel to the lovely rooms. Also the driver and the rangers were perfect. They did their utmost to show us the big five. We have seen them all. The food was very good, so was the whole ambience.

The hospitality of the lodge staff was excellent. The game drives were extraordinary with Collin & Nelson. Collin's well timed off-road drives to pursue animals afforded us close view with the Big Five + cheetah & hyenas. The best view was the leopard killing a warthog after dark & the hyena surprised her & she climbed the tree with the kill. We also followed 2 leopards 'strolling' in the dense bush during sunset. It was a magnificent experience always to be remembered!
