We have just returned from an extraordinary 16 days in Africa which culminated in 3 nights at Inyati and were so sad to leave it. It is a truly special place where you are spoilt rotten at every end and turn but also experience quite remarkable sights. We could sit in our bed and see elephants, kudu, baboons and vervet...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Inyati for 3 nights. The lodge is fabulous - it sits on the banks of a river and the landscape is extremely scenic. The lodge is not fenced and its lush lawns displayed a variety of animals every day including vervet monkeys, impala, warthogs and nyala. Leopards and elephants are also common visitors. On... More

Thank you so much for your review. The most evident trait of the staff at Inyati is that they love what they do. The rangers and trackers proudly transport visitors into another world, where the language is in the sound and rhythm of the bush. They are experts out in the field, and are the finishing touch to the fine... More

A friend and I stayed here for 4 nights and had a fantastic holiday which exceeded all our expectations. We saw lions, leopards, elephants and a cheetah on our first game drive and we saw something special each time we went out. The staff are very knowledgable and friendly and I can't wait to go back next year.

This was our 2nd stay in 2 years and it's just as good as before. Wildlife viewing is the same whether one stays here or places costing 30%+ more. The hotel/chalets are very nice with large soaking tub, inside/outside shower, comfortable bed. Food is good but there seemed to be less "wild" game (previously had impala, kudu, springbok or other... More

We stayed for 2 nights and not only saw the Big 5 but baby leopards and 2 kills being consumed. The resort grounds always have game roaming around them so its great to just sit in the shade and observe. Every meal was served in a different location which is a nice touch.
