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 safari 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.

Have just returned from a 3 night stay at this wonderful game lodge. There is a relaxed feel about this lodge that is quite charming. It is NOT in the super slick Singita league which is a welcome change. The game viewing was excellent. Our Ranger, George and tracker, Solly were

Hi, are drones allowed?
Hi there, The use of drones is prohibited in wildlife areas and National Parks as it is felt that they would disturb the game, and other people on safari, thereby negatively affecting the experience for all. In addition, because of security concerns around rhino poaching, and safely concerns because of inadequate civil aviation laws, the use of unmanned aerial vehicles is illegal in some of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve.

"rooms 8 and 9 overlook the river and are visited most mornings by Vevret Monkeys who like to play hide and seek with the guests"
"The room was beautiful and spacious. There were many special touches to make us feel welcome!"
"Room was extremely spacious for a party of 3 people, it had all the services that you'd required during your stay. "
"No internet in the room, so if you bring work along (like I did), go to the common area which is also a very pleasant place to hang out."
