“Fantastic First Safari Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2007

For my first trip to Africa and first safari I did a lot of research. Everything about Inyati came back favorable and I am thrilled to report that my expectations were consistently exceeded. I loved the small lodge experience, the fantastic ranger and tracker, the huge amount of food, the special cozy touches. This place was a bargain in my book for everything you got. Customer service was impeccable and everyone was so friendly, including the other guests. I'm usually not one for travelling and dining with strangers, but here it was just exciting to share the experience with others from around the world (including many from South Africa, which I took as a good sign since the 'locals' clearly loved it too). I would go back in one second.

  • Liked — Superb, extravagant details (hot water bottles, fresh fruit, great beds, lovely bathroom).
  • Disliked — Nothing!

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in April after a recommendation from my best friend who is a South African. WHAT a GREAT recommendation. From the moment we arrived we felt we were at home. Grant and Sandra made us feel so welcome and relaxed.

George and Solly did an EXCELLENT job on the game drives, just incredble! I could not have imagined anything more wonderful than seeing all the big five, baby lions, baby hyennas coming out of their home for the first couple days. AND two elephants swimming and bathing together.

The time at Inyati was just amazing! The staff, the food, the comfy beds, the fabulous bath. I just LOVED it here! LOVED IT. We will for sure be back! If you are considering going to this area of the game reserves, Inyati is a must!

  • Liked — The staff was so friendly
  • Disliked — We loved everything about it!

We stayed here for 2 nights after having been to 2 other game lodges (4 game drives @ 3+ hours). This was the best. The accomodation was very well furnished and the rooms were very big. Excellent facilities. Food was very good, local specialities, and a good selection. The most important factor for me was the excellence and enthusiasm of the game rangers - they made every effort to spot all types of game - our ranger was a leopard fan (4 sightings!). We also sighted 3 cheetahs, and followed them for 20 mins through the bush, absolutely incredible. A holiday of a lifetime.

  • Liked — spacious and attractively furnished
  • Disliked — it was perfect

Fantastic safari, beautiful & comfortable rooms with outstanding service and great rangers and trackers. First class experience for middle class budget - you can't beat it. I researched all of the Kruger game lodges and booked this one and couldn't have been happier. I loved Inyati!
