They did everything in their power to make sure we had the best experience. We saw so much, it was truly unbelievable. We saw numerous leopards & cubs and hundreds of elephants, a cougar, giraffes, zebras,...

We stayed at Inyati for 2 nights (which I really regretted now because it's way too short!). It took a while to reach from Skukuza airport and at some point the road was really bumpy. We could see some animals on the way, including one of the Big 5. It was exciting. Once we reached our lodge, we were welcome...

We loved Inyati game lodge in the Sabi Sands. We really loved how they could go off road and get really close to the animals. Our ranger, Matt, loved tracking the animals by following their footprints through the bush. It is a really relaxing and all the staff are really friendly. Ask for ranger Matt - he is hugely passionate,...

The hospitality, location, wildlife, guides, food, staff, are all brilliant and combined to make our stay memorable. George was a 1st class tracker and we were always able to find the animals we wanted to see. The lodge is spacious and idyllic with no fence so the animals come close, particularly the cheeky monkeys! Food quality and variety is top...

This has to be one of the best Private Game reserves in the Sabi Sands. Everything is exceptional: the location, the amenities, the staff and the wine list. Nothing is ever a problem. Perhaps the two best features of this fantastic lodge are its Rangers & Guides (exceptionally experienced and knowledgable) and then the quality game sightings. If you love...
