Sabi Sand Game Reserve


Inyati Game Lodge Location Map

Inyati Game Lodge is situated in the world-acclaimed Sabi Sand reserve adjoining the Kruger National Park. Set on the curving banks of the perennial 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 4x4 safari vehicles provide unrivalled game viewing in the company of highly skilled rangers and Shangaan trackers.

Guests can also enjoy interpretive guided bush walks offering the nature enthusiast the ultimate bush experience.

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 11 en-suite luxury chalets all have glorious river views. Each is equipped with air-conditioning, mosquito nets, telephone, and beautifully appointed bathrooms with outdoor showers. The Family Chalet has a kingsize bed plus 2 single beds.

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.

Start TestimonialWe had stayed previously at Inyati and had such a good time that we were concerned that a further visit might be a mistake. How wrong can you be. Inyati again provided splendid game drives. We saw all the Big 5 and were so lucky to see so many leopards and cubs. The highlight came on the last morning when we tracked a lion for over an hour and then saw him charge a pride to get the carcass of their recently killed zebra.End Testimonial
