Inyati Game Lodge is situated in the western sector of the Sabi Sand Wildtuin which is a private game reserve sharing a common unfenced boundary with the Kruger National Park. It spans 50 000 hectares and is renowned for providing some of the best game viewing in Africa. The reserve is not open to the general public with each private lodge having exclusive traversing rights over their area.
Inyati’s rangers drive specially designed safari vehicles which are allowed off-road, ensuring you get exclusive and intimate game viewing opportunities.
The reserve has a dense concentration of wildlife and is home to the Big 5 – elephant, lion, rhino, leopard and buffalo. Cheetah, giraffe, zebra, wild dogs and a vast variety of antelope and other species may also be closely observed, free roaming within their own territories. Inyati is one of the best places in the world to get up close and personal with the elusive leopard.
The reserve has a hot, sub-tropical climate with two distinct seasons and game viewing activities are equally rewarding during both. The summer season (September to March) is a time when many species breed and prey is plentiful for the lurking predators. Rainfall occurs between October and February and often results in spectacular afternoon thundershowers.
In the winter season (April to August), the animals concentrate at the perennial water sources and the grass is low, making game viewing easier. Although winter days are usually warm and clear, late afternoon and early morning temperatures are distinctly chilly.
The lodge has a fully air-conditioned gym available for guest use. Facilities include an electronic bicycle and step machine as well as free weights. Water and gym towels are available in the gym for your convenience.
A range of local and other African curios and crafts are available for purchase in our curio shop. Where possible, we source products locally to help support and develop our communities.
Please feel free to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature on the deck overlooking the river.
The swimming pool is situated adjacent to the bar / dining area. Sun loungers and swimming towels have been placed at the poolside for your convenience.
TreeTops Conference Facility
Inyati has the ideal conference venue called TreeTops because of its setting in the tops of the tree’s on the banks of the Sand River about 3km from the main lodge. This is the perfect facility to host intimate wedding ceremonies or corporate conferences. TreeTops offers the opportunity for focused meetings yet provides the setting for complete relaxation at the end of the day.
