Inyati Game Lodge is situated in the western sector of the Sabi Sand Wildtuin which is a private game reserve sharing a common unfenced boundary with the Kruger National Park. It spans 50 000 hectares and is renowned for providing some of the best game viewing in Africa. The reserve is not open to the general public with each private lodge having exclusive traversing rights over their area. Inyati’s rangers drive specially designed safari vehicles which are allowed off-road, ensuring you get exclusive and intimate game viewing opportunities. The reserve has a dense concentration of wildlife and is home to the Big 5 – elephant, lion, rhino, leopard and buffalo. Cheetah, giraffe, zebra, wild dogs and a vast variety of antelope and other species may also be closely observed, free roaming within their own territories. Inyati is one of the best places in the world to get up close and personal with the elusive leopard.

Unbelievable. Excellent service: cuisine; safety measures; lodging; management team and staff. Saw all of the Big 5- lions, leopards, Inyati/Buffalo, rhinos, hippos plus giraffes, zebra, elephants and the infamous “Zazoo” (trumpeter hornbill). Game drives were the focus and our team was the best. Met wonderful people. Dining was lovely and lodging was perfect. Loved the symbiosis between the human and animal kingdoms at Inyati. Couldn’t have wanted or asked for more💕

Second time and just as amazing. Staff, food, accommodation, all of it . Couldn’t fault our experience and are already looking into booking for next year . Inyati makes you feel like you are really one of the family . We have been to other lodges but Inyati is the only one we have ever wanted to come back to

Spectacular! Rooms were were clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed both the indoor and outdoor showers. The wildlife wandered right up to our chalet. Hippos and Impalas on the lawn, Vervet monkeys on the porch. Staff and service were both top notch. We really enjoyed our outdoor dining experiences in the Boma. Hands down our favorite part we’re the twice daily game drives with Diff and Roger. They tracked down incredible things for us to see each day. 10/10 experience and we can’t wait to return.

One of the great experiences of my life. The safari crew was professional and knowledgeable. The service was pristine. I blushed, they were so accommodating. The food always delicious. The grounds took my breath away, as did the lodge. I felt like I was in Dinesen. Above all, I saw tons of beautiful animals in the freshest air I have ever breathed.

Stayed 3 nights with 5 safari's. The game viewing was incredible. Georgie and Solly are unbelievable trackers, find all the animals, and make sure everyone has a great photo shot. You see the Big 5 on almost every drive. The Land Cruiser is never overcrowded (we maxed out with 6 people). It was very nice that all the guides are in communication (even the ones from other lodges) to make sure everyone sees all the animals. Entire staff are friendly, helpful, and attentive. You never want for anything. Accommodations are spacious and always clean. The grounds are beautiful and animals walk right by while you are having lunch or a drink on the deck.

It's hard to put into words how amazing our trip was. The entire staff at Inyati made sure we had everything we needed or wanted and our Guide & tracker were beyond amazing on every drive. We had experiences we will remember the rest of our lives.

More than excellent stay! We stayed for 2 nights and had 4 safari's, In an open vehicle, guided bij 2 experts in tracking and driving, we were brought to the places were we saw leopards, lions, buffelo's, elefants, rhino's, etc, etc. Every wish was fullfilled. The lodges were great; large, clean and very wellcoming. Every time of the day things were perfect. The food was fresh, very tastfull. Every moment we were surprised. And the staf was great and brought a solution for every problem. They warned us and gave an alternative route to reach them because of a strike and when we needed to depart earlier than scheduled, they picked us up and arranged us a picknick. When you have the opportunity : go for it!!

I loved my 3 days at Inyati. The staff is warm and personable. Our guide and tracker were excellent, converting information and putting us in position to see the Big 5 in a fantastic series of 5 game drives. Accommodations are excellent. Good is good. It was magical
