About Inyati Private Game Reserve

Inyati is set in 65 000 hectares of unspoilt bushveld within the Sabi Sand Reserve, adjacent to the world-renowned Kruger National Park. The lodge is situated on the banks of the Sand River allowing for fantastic game viewing from the lodge. Diversity of species and relaxed big game allows for close-up game viewing and photography. With no boundary fences between the Sabi Sand and the Kruger National Park, this Reserve benefits from the great diversity of wildlife found in one of the richest wilderness areas on the African continent along with the additional benefits experienced on a private game reserve.


Inyati consists of eleven chalets with views of the Sand River and bushveld. Each air-conditioned suite features generous spaces, en-suite bathrooms with twin hand basins, separate WC, bath, indoor. The lodge accommodates 25 guests.


Inyati's superbly positioned guest sitting and dining areas overlook the Sand River. The verandah and dining area that overlooks the riverine vegetation, natural habitat for elephant and hippo, Warthog hollow bar, library, filtered swimming-pool, air-conditioned gym and walk-in wine cellar. Our traditional Shangaan boma is used on alternate nights, and is a truly memorable way to experience a safari evening under the African night sky. Fine cuisine and wines can be sampled while sitting near a warm crackling fire.


View Africa's most impressive wildlife on morning and afternoon/ evening game drives in open 4-wheel drive safari vehicles with expert guides and Shangaan trackers. Guests can also enjoy interpretive guided bush walks with excellent bird watching. Game drives traverse an area of
10 000 hectares and strict vehicle limits at sightings ensure the exclusivity of your game viewing experience. Off-road driving ensures that you have the best possible view of any exceptional sighting and rangers are constantly in touch with each other to keep track of animal movements
