OUR IMPACT

The majority of Inyati’s employees are from the impoverished Bushbuckridge communities. Inyati recognises the socio-economic issues of the area and we make every effort to address them in a progressive and mutually beneficial way. Our commitment to transformation extends beyond our employees through our community programmes. We assist local schools and are a major partner in establishing a digital learning centre with Good Work Foundation (GWF) in the Dumphries community on the border of Inyati. GWF provides learning opportunities to school children, adult learning programmes and connects young rural South Africans to the huge opportunities in the growing economy of wildlife.

We invite guests to join us as we visit The Dumphries Digital Learning Campus, which is about a 15 minute drive from the main lodge. You are welcome to donate towards an item on the wish list or take a gift with you (we have gift packs of necessities available to purchase from our curio shop for your convenience). Please note that the school is closed during school holidays, if requested in advance we may be able to arrange for guests to view the school premises at times when the school is closed. Should you wish to learn more or make a donation please contact: Verena Wagner, Development Manager E: verena@goodworkfoundation.org T: 0835938184 www.goodworkfoundation.org

GOOD WORK FOUNDATION

GWF believes in a future where rural African people are confident participants of the fourth industrial revolution. They are agents of change seamlessly plugged into local communities and global networks. Together with those who are reimagining education with us, GWF will continue to create innovative digital learning campuses, responsive programmes and demand-led social enterprises, all working together to create an accessible, opportunity-packed world for our next generation of rural Africans. Our goal is for each regional cluster of campuses to deliver wonder-filled 21st-century learning opportunities to rural and marginalised communities. Each cluster will be 80% self-funded, 100% community-powered and 75% women-led.

The world is changing fast and the future will not exclude us. In fact, the future needs us.

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Through a voluntary Guest Conservation Contribution, every visitor has the opportunity to protect the reserve’s endangered rhino population. Contributions will be collected from the Inyati guests on departure and are distributed through prescribed channels to the Sabi Sand Nature Conservation Trust. All transactions are independently audited by KPMG, and a section 18A certificate is available on request.

The Sabi Sand Nature Conservation Trust is a Non Profit, Public Benefit Organisation established to engage in conservation, rehabilitation and protection of the natural environment. Funds raised through Inyati will be allocated directly to the rhino-related expenses of the anti-poaching and response teams both in the air and on the ground.

Please help us to ensure that future generations do not look at ours and say that a species vanished from the earth on our watch.

THE INYATI FAMILY

Inyati is committed to long-term sustainability and to respecting the local community and environment in which we live. We care about our people and ensuring a representative workforce. Inyati employs about 45 permanent staff, most of which are from the local community. Many of our staff have been with Inyati for more than 10 years making Inyati their home and creating that family atmosphere that the lodge has become renowned for. We were the first reserve to create a staff share scheme back in 2013 which ensures our staff, as owners, get to participate in the success of our business. Our employment equity certificate demonstrates our commitment to transformation in South Africa.

Our Inyati team have put every measure in place to welcome our guests back to Inyati and we will do everything required, and more, to keep you safe while you enjoy your safari experience Click Here
