We came as a couple in late May for a three night stay. Everything about the facilities, food, staff, and game drives exceeded our expectations. This was truly the trip of a lifetime. We were extremely impressed with our tracker and driver for the game drives. Gabriel was a wealth of knowledge about all the animals that made seeing them so much more meaningful. It was fun returning to our room and noticing those little personal touches that showed you care about us. Thanks again for an outstanding experience and adventure.

We had a great experience in Inyati - the food was excellent and plentiful, the hotel was luxurious, the organisation was perfect and our guide Keith was extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic and experienced. It couldn't have gone any better for us.

Dear Inyati, Thank you for your e-mail. We spent two wonderful days at your game lodge. Everything was perfect, the room, the attention, the food and the game drives, with a friendly and very knowledgeable guide. A great experience! With kind regards Britt & Thomas

This place is a hidden gem. We had such a great stay I promised myself to write a great review as soon as I got back home. We stayed for 3 days and hated to leave. Location is beautiful and peaceful. Food, rooms, staff... EXCELLENT! We drove there from Joburg, and even before getting there, elephants and jiraffes crossed our path. Games drives are the ultimate experience @ Inyati. The roofless 4x4s are excellent and take you just anywhere to see game: we crossed a river, sandy river banks, heavy bush. Guides and trackers couldn't be better. We saw the Big 5 many times, and many other animals, even a cerval which our guide said he hadn't spotted in 6 months. You could see wild animals even from the lodge terrace; we saw kudus, an old lonely buffalo, warthogs, crossing the lawn during the day. Customer service was impeccable and everyone was so friendly, including the other guests. I'm usually not one for crowds, so I loved the fact that accommodation is limited to 10 cabins. Great extras — Superb details (4-pole beds with mosquito nets, hot water bottles and blankies for cold early morning game drives, mosquito repellent cans in your room).

Dear Inyati, Thank you for making our two-nights stay one of the most memorable experiences ever - a beautiful lodge in a beautiful setting, with some absolutely fascinating game drives; we got to see more wild animals than we dared to expect! Very special thanks to Delinda, Ranger George, and Tracker Solly - and of course to the entire staff, who were all incredibly friendly and attentive. We also met some wonderful people among the guests and during our game drives, which only enhanced our experience. It was tough to leave this special place, but we will surely be back some day. Kind regards, Sebastian & Shizuka

Thank you so much for organizing such a great trip for us. Finally, Inyati was also a really nice lodge. Again our room was perfect for us--people were friendly and helpful. The setting was great. We met so many nice people everywhere---and of course so so many beautiful animals in both places. You have a beautiful country---hopefully, we will be able to see more of it on another trip. Thank you so much, Rae

Dear Inyati, My husband and I stayed at Inyati on November 17-20. We want to thank you for your great hospitality and especially our rangers, Keith and George, and trackers, Norman and Solly, for showing us some of the best game viewings we've had anywhere in Africa! The hot pursuit of the wild dogs tops our experience as the most exciting and memorable game drive! When we return to Sabi Sand for another safari, we'll definitely stay at Inyati again! Regards, Carmen Pang & Tim Foote

We stayed at INYATI for one night only, what a mistake, a week would not have been enough. This was one of the best days of my life, my wife + 2 teenage children also had a fantastic time. The setting is so beautiful, food fantastic, staff were brilliant especially our ranger + tracker, how they spotted a leopard for us (within 20 minutes of starting our 1st safari) i\'ll never know. Oh how we wished we had not boked our onward flight so soon, we really wanted to stay longer. A fantastic place to stay.
