Inyati was the third game park visited on the trip. First, the good. Our guide was excellent; knowledgeable about the game, birds and environment and passionate. The tracker was good. We saw a fair amount of game and learned about them. The physical facilities are quite nice. Solid wall rooms with air conditioning and amenities. There is a gym that... More

We highly recommend Inyati, which we visited back in January.. Since then, I've visited numerous game lodges and reserves throughout Africa and our time at Inyati / Sabi Sand remains a standout. Just as we arrived, the sky opened up in a complete downpour. We were ushered into the lodge and offered wine and snacks while we waited for the... More

I was part of a group tour and stayed at this reserve for 3 nights. At this reserve, the drivers can go off road, mowing down small trees, in an attempt to get close to the animals. JUST DON"T STAND UP IN THE JEEP were the rules of this adventure. Really, just 6 feet from a pride of lions, how... More

We just got back from 5 nights at Inyati and were sad when it was time to leave. Aside from the comfortable accommodations, great food and location, friendly staff and insane game viewing, Inyati also has two photographers on staff who masquerade as top notch rangers. Khimbini and Keith (also the GM) are both fantastic photographers as well as rangers;... More

From the moment we arrived, we were treated impeccably. Everyone was friendly and professional. Our guide and tracker (Khimbini and Norman) were excellent and went out of their way to teach us about the animals. Within the 4 days, we were not just able to see the Big 5 (and many other animals), we learnt about some of the animal's... More

We had an excellent experience at Inyati. It was an absolute world class experience with top quality management, staff, game guides. We saw plenty of game - all Big 5 of course. The food was excellent. Overall, I cannot imagine a better experience. Sabi Sand Game cannot be beat in terms of game viewing.

My husband and I just returned from Inyati today. We had the pleasure of spending our drives with George (ranger/guide) and Sollt (tracker). The lodge itself was heaven! The food was great (tons of veggies), perfect gym and wonderful staff.

We stayed at a lodge in Kruger before coming to Inyati. Before coming to Inyati we were excited to see lions 150 meters away. Before coming to Inyati we were excited to see a leopard for 15 seconds.

We have stayed in 6 or 7 other lodges in Africa and have had some great experiences but Inyati is, hands down, the one we love the most. The facilities are beautiful and the setting cannot be beat. The staff, while very well-trained and professional, are more like a family and in fact, many of them are related. The food... More
