Inyati Game Lodge
Sabi Sands Game Reserve, South Africa

Expect an intimate and authentic safari experience at Inyati Game Lodge in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, which lies adjacent to South Africa’s Greater Kruger Park.

Why We Love it and You Will Too

  • Inyati Game Lodge offers a wonderfully friendly and authentic safari environment, with top-notch facilities like a gym, a swimming pool and an elevated viewing deck overlooking the Sand River. 
  • The rangers are well-trained to give you a fulfilling game viewing experience on morning and afternoon 4x4 game drives. They can also head off-road in this reserve which means you get to follow all of the wildlife action. 
  • Another perk of staying within the Sabi Sand is that there are no fences separating it from the Kruger. This means animals (yes, leopards) can roam into this area freely for your game viewing pleasure. 
  • At Inyati you can also try bush walks and fishing, while the kids can join the educational Young Rangers Programme. 
  • The thatched roof chalets are kitted out with modern amenities and all those much-needed comforts to make you feel right at home. Air-conditioning is a bonus too!

Your Inyati Game Lodge Experience

Inyati Game Lodge offers up a good dose of down-to-earth hospitality in an authentic safari setting. Its location along the Sand River is hard to top, especially with the exceptional team of ranger-guides that brings it all to life.

Guided game drives are incredible here in the Sabi Sands, especially as vehicles are allowed to venture off-road. In just a few hours you’ll quickly count all the members of the Big 5, and quite possibly have a leopard sighting too. Since the reserve shares an unfenced border with the Kruger, animals can freely meander into the area. You’ll also have direct access to a wide range of prolific birdlife, as well as not having to compete with the larger safari crowds. 

While you’ll relish being in the bush exploring, Inyati is the kind of lodge that always feels welcoming, and you’ll enjoy coming back to freshen up after a guided game drive or a bush walk. The bar area and communal lounge are both great for kicking back with a crisp drink and engaging in some light convo, while the refreshing pool will quickly lure you in during those sultry afternoons. 

Meals are served on the open deck which features views of the river frequently visited by a variety of resident animals. When you’re ready to retire to your room after stories and wine flow, the thatched chalets offer everything you could need; soft couches, air-con and king-size beds...yes please!
