EXPERT RANGERS AND TRACKERS

Inyati prides itself in the safari guiding team and we believe that an experienced ranger and tracker are an integral part of your game viewing experience. All of our rangers and trackers are registered with The Field Guides Association of Southern Africa (FGASA) and have a full trails guide qualification as a minimum requirement. These qualifications ensure guests enjoy an exceptional wildlife experience – not only while on a game drive but also on foot. Your ranger will be your dinner host, guide, and educator during your stay.

Guests are guided on specially designed safari vehicles which are allowed off-road, ensuring you get exclusive and intimate game viewing opportunities. The tracker, who sits on a seat at the front of the bonnet, has the job of finding elusive wildlife as well as interpret nature’s subtle clues through acutely honed senses while the ranger engages with the guests.

GEORGE HLONGWANE

Georgie is a living legend in the reserve. He was born on the property and as a result started honing his bush craft skills as a toddler.
