Inyati Private Game Reserve

Sabi Sand Game Reserve

Inyati Private Game Reserve is situated in the world-acclaimed Sabi Sand reserve adjoining the Kruger National Park. Set on the curving banks of the Sand River, the lodge is renowned for its excellent service, accommodation and game viewing opportunities.  Regular sightings of hippo and crocodile along the lush river bank, or herds of elephants enjoying an afternoon bathe, can be enjoyed from the large wooden viewing deck, while the morning and afternoon game drives on open Land Rovers provide unrivalled game viewing in the company of highly skilled rangers and Shangaan trackers.

Buffet style breakfasts and lunches are served on a thatched patio overlooking a natural clearing often frequented by game. After breakfast, enjoy a guided bush walk in the company of your ranger, to seek out the smaller species of the bush and to learn more about the plants and trees of the area.

In the evenings, delicious open air dinners are served in the boma under the stars, or in the bewitching seclusion of the bush.  The Warthog Bar is the ideal venue for a sundowner drink, and to chat with fellow guests about the activities of the day after dinner.

Each of the immaculately furnished en-suite thatched chalets and executive suites all have glorious river views. Each is equipped with air-conditioning, mosquito nets, telephone, and beautifully appointed bathrooms. 

The crystal clear swimming pool is an ideal venue for enjoying sundowners, or for cooling off after having spent a morning under the warm African sun. There is also a small air-conditioned gymnasium.

Inyati was good value for money compared to some other lodges and the game viewing experience was brilliant. All the Big Five in one morning!

,

Inyati was incredible. The staff was fantastic, the accomodations were beautiful and the wild animals were incredible. If I can go back I will! I am recommending this trip to all of my friends. I appreciate Anneli Rudiger of Travel Butlers for putting this great experience together for my husband and I. Doing all of this online with her was incredibly easy and I will recommend her and Travel Butlers highly.

,

An excellent trip. Highlight was the three nights at Inyati.

,

We had an absolutely fantastic trip, and the itinerary you arranged for us was really perfect in pretty much every regard. All the properties we stayed at were quirky, luxurious and beautifully situated, as well as extremely friendly and welcoming. Inyati Lodge was just wonderful: all the staff were so friendly, the food was ridiculously amazing, and we met some great people (not to mention seeing the Big Five - and more - every single day). Meanwhile The Last Word (the new name for The Franschhoek) was especially memorable: we were treated like royalty, and generally ate and drank incredibly. Thank you very much indeed for arranging it: it really couldn't have been any better, and our memories will stay with us forever.

,

Words cannot describe our gratitude to you for the arrangements you made for our safari. Everything went like clockwork, and the Inyati Private Game Reserve was perfect. We had a wonderful time, and saw all the Big 5 and much more, and were treated like royalty. Thank you once again for all your efforts.

,

We would like to tell you that our trip to South Africa was an adventure from beginning to end. Kristin and Stefan were able to use the unexpected extra day for sightseeing around Johannesburg, we really enjoyed Zambia and there was no end to the spectacular sights around the Inyati lodge. We want to extend our very special thanks for all the effort which you put into making everything work out - way over and above what we could have asked of you. We have never before received such service and we will most certainly recommend you to all our friends. We fully realize that we were somewhat difficult travellers, given the complex itinerary, but you made all of this seem easy and routine. In particular, calling Kristin to make special arrangements when her flight got cancelled and taking the extra effort to make sure we could all meet up in Jo'burg from different routes were really, really appreciated efforts. We really enjoyed every single day of the vacation. Let us simply say that our Christmas cards this year are filled with descriptions from the trip.

,

Inyati was again wonderful and we saw so much wildlife at such close quarters it again was magical. The service we received from Travel Butlers was first class with everything working like clockwork.

,

Inyati delivered the most amazing experience with superb hospitality and comfort and with animal contact second to none.

,

I just wanted to thank you personnal for everything you did to make this holiday one of the best we are likely to ever experience. Your recommendation of Inyati could not have been better. Within minutes of being at the site we saw rhino and elephants and our luck carried on from there. By the end of the 3rd game drive we had been up close and personal with all 5 of the big 5. The pride of male lions not more than 2 feet away was particularly exciting. They were massive. All the details came together and everything including transfers and accommodation went very smoothly indeed. Kim and I certainly had an experience of a life time and once again I would like to say thank you. I wil be recommending Travel Butlers and you personally to all my friends.

,

Well - what can I say. We had the time of our lives. I have just written on your feedback page so when you see that, you will realize what a great time we had. Thanks so much for recommending Inyati. It was fantastic - we saw everything. We want to go back again and we are telling all our friends that Inyati is a place that everyone should go at least once in their lives. I think I have persuaded my parents to go - Africa was somewhere they hadn't even considered going for a holiday. I will give your name to anyone who wants to book a holiday, so stay tuned!!!!!! We stayed in the rooms right near the river - numbers 8 and 9. They were lovely - truly authentic African. We had water buck on the lawns, monkeys in the trees right next to us and baboons strolling past our verandah. The brunches and dinners were all served in different locations and were all beautiful. I think James and I put on a few kilos - we couldn't resist tasting everything. Anyway - we are saving up for our next holiday to Africa - when and if that happens we will be in touch. Thanks once again for organizing such a wonderful experience for us.

,

Inyati was absolutely lovely, thank you for such a great recommendation. The food, games drives and surroundings were breath-taking.

,

Inyati is great, I saw the Big 5 in the first 2 hours. Your service was absolutely brilliant. The places you picked and the order were perfect for me. I tell everyone about your great service. I'm sure we will do business again. You made the experience wonderful and easy. Who could ask for more?

,

Inyati Private Game Reserve was fantastic - everything was more than perfect - transfer, accommodation, service, food, amenities, etc. The staff both at the lodge and on safari itself were so friendly and helpful and our ranger Tim and tracker Nelson were fabulous and we saw so much in our sadly all too short time there than I could ever have imagined - lions, elephants, zebra, giraffe, leopards .... Thank you for all you help and hopefully one day we can revisit Inyati!

,

Just a note to say thanks very much for your advice and booking of our night in Blue Jay Lodge and our 3 nights in Inyati. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Blue Jay Lodge is a great lodge and Inyati was just wonderful. We could have stayed there a lot longer and saw the Big 5 in one morning as well as 2 cheetahs. Just fantastic!

,

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Inyati to any one - it was excellent.

,

We are back from the trip now and had an absolutely amazing time! Although we had rain each day we were there, we saw the Big 5 in the first 2 game drives, saw plenty of animals in every drive, and thought Inyati and the people there were incredible. Thanks so much for all your help and we'll look forward to planning more trips with you in the future.

,

Inyati was FANTASTIC so thank you very much for the recommendation etc! I got the credit for finding it but I kept telling the group that it was completely your advice. Julie and Jon are still out there and boy was it hard to leave on Friday...

,

Just to say we were very happy with Jackalberry Farm and Lodge and Inyati - it was a great trip. We were particularly pleased with the recommendation of Jackalberry - it was such a nice way to start the holiday with a couple of days relaxing there - even if we didn't see any hippos! The Inyati accommodation was fabulous and the whole trip was great. Thank you again for your help.

,

Just wanted to say a BIG thank-you for all your help on organizing our trip. Back to reality now, but the whole experience was awesome. There are no words that would do the whole trip justice; the safari has still rendered me speechless. The Inyati lodge itself was amazing. Everyone kept saying it was the best one out of the ones nearby ... Certainly recommend it to anyone.

,

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for organising such a wonderful trip for us. The accomondation along the Garden route was wonderful and the highlight of the trip really was Inyati Game Reserve which was absolutely fantastic. We saw some amazing wildlife and were treated so well by all the staff at Inyati, they said to pass on their best wishes to you. It really was a trip we will never forget.

,

On behalf of both Lynn and I, I wanted to say a very BIG thank you for a truly fantastic experience at Inyati - we both had a brilliant time. We could not find fault with anything - John and Francine are such a lovely couple and great hosts, George and Solly were the best and we had such a good laugh with them both on the rides. Our room (no. 3) gave us a spectacular view of the elephants traipsing across the lawn one lunchtime :-) and we very much plan to join the 45% "return" visitors at some point next year. Thanks ever so Tracey for such a great recommendation - we did hand out your details to a number of people whilst there so here's hoping your website is bombarded.

,

I have no complaints whatsoever with Inyati or Jock's. Both were special in their own ways. The people, food, and service at Inyati were top notch. Giving us hot water bottles at night and for our morning game drives was an especially nice touch. But then Jock's seemed to go a step beyond. We had a ranger, JV, who was absolutely wonderful. He was very knowledgeable and fit right in with our family. The girls (including my wife) wanted to take him home as their souvenir. I would highly recommend both lodges to any of my friends. We definitely will use you and / or recommend you.

,

Tracey, I thought that the trip was the most amazing I have ever done. Inyati Private Game Reserve was fantastic and I particularly liked the African fee lthat you got. It appeared less commercial than others we saw.  It was intimate and you were treated as a friend (with respect thought) and not as a 'guest'. Thought the guide was excellent, knowledgeable, caring and understanding.  All in all it was fantastic.  A trip we are both keen to repeat!

,

Thank you very much, we had an absolutely excellent time. Inyati was perfect for us, the accommodation, food and staff were all top notch, I think that was the highlight for us. Also Dianne, Janne and Michael at the Table Mountain Lodge we found to be the absolute best hosts, they couldnt do enough for us and were excellent to talk to. Peebles was an absolutely amazing room and bathroom, and whilst we were at dinner our hostes there went into our room and set out candles and ran a bath as well which was lovely.

Pack For A Purpose

Inyati Private Game Reserve supports Pack for a Purpose, an initiative set up to enable travellers to make meaningful contributions to help meet the needs of the places they visit. 

There is need everywhere in the world. People who travel to other countries often wish they could bring things along, for distribution out to local communities, but without knowing more about this, it is difficult to know specifically what items will be welcome and worthwhile.

Inyati Private Game Reserve work with local community-based projects, and via the Pack for a Purpose website, they provide details of the project and a list of items that are specifically required. In this way, as the traveller, you can decide whether you wish to 'pack for a purpose' and bring along additional items which meet the needs of the people who will be using them.

If you book a stay here with Travel Butlers, we will provide all the details of what you could take along to support Inyati Private Game Reserve and their local community.
