It was my first safari – what an experience, and the lodge was amazing.

We landed at Ulasabi airstrip, where the lodge picked us up. The lodge is 10 min drive from the airstrip. On our way from the airstrip to the lodge, we meet the first animals.

Check in was relaxed and every

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.

Hello Marilu- We are planning a trip to Inyati for June 2018. Can you tell me if there were monkeys on the premises when you were there in June? The reason I ask is because we are having trouble fitting Jane Goodall's Chimp Eden into our schedule, so were hoping to see monkeys at Inyati. We're especially excited to see hippo and elephants in the river - did you see them? Thank you so much for your help!
There are both Vervet monkeys and Baboons in the reserve. You should get to see both. In addition and lesser known, other primates include the lesser bush babies and thick tailed bush babies.

Hello! I will be visiting your Lodge in mid-September and I couldn't be more excited!! Visiting Africa has been a life long dream. I was wondering if you provide binoculars during morning and evening safaris or if I should purchase my own. Thanks for your help! Best, Jennifer
Hi Jennifer Thank you for your message. We do not provide binoculars, however there is generally a pair on the game viewing vehicle. I would suggest bringing your own. Regards Leighanne
