Our entire time at Inyati Game Lodge was amazing! The Staff were welcoming, kind and helpful! The guides and trackers were so informative and shared such knowledge and respect for the animals. We were so privileged to be able to see so many incredible animals interacting in nature. They went out of their way to track the animals. The Lodge... More

Beautiful and scenic, knowledgeable and kind staff who showed us animals, nature, and shared their culture and home. It felt like we were old friends by the time we had to depart. Amazing food, room was impeccable. A glorious vacation that I can't stop talking about!!

We had the time of our lives. Everything about Inyati was amazing. The food, the lodging, the staff, the facilities, the trackers, the safari drives, everything was amazing. Every morning and evening they took us out for game drives and we saw everything--lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, cheetah, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, all manner of buck, and much much more. It was... More

We had an awesome time. The guides were excellent and did a great job providing us the best viewing of the animals. We even had a leopard kill an impala out last morning just off our breakfast porch. It was a wonderful time and we hope to go back next year.

Just joking, we had a sensational few days at the end of last month. Excellent game drives with amazing animal experiences (notably with leopards and wild dogs) were just part of it. The room was more than spacious and comfortable even for family of four. The support and service from the staff were first class but done with a pleasing... More

We stayed at Inyati for 2 nights, which means we did 4 game drives. By the second one we had already seen all the big five! We get to be so close to the animals it's insane, because even though you are extremely close you still feel very safe. It was very rewarding and awesome to see them in their... More

We have stayed at most of the lodges in the Western Sector of Sabi Sands but until now had only seen Inyati as we passed by the entrance or from the opposite bank while on game drives so decided it was time to actually stay there.
