Directions to Inyati Game Lodge, Sabi Sands Reserve
For guests coming from Johannesburg, it is recommended to fly in directly to the Sabi Sands Game Reserve on a 1 hour flight, where a representative of the lodge will collect you for a short 10-15 minute transfer to the lodge. Flying into Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport is also an option and the 1.5 hour transfer service from there to the lodge will be done on a private basis in an air-conditioned vehicle.
The lodge is also accessible with a sedan vehicle via the Newington Gate, if you do not mind long distance driving. This option is, however, not recommended if you have limited time for your safari.
