My father and I were there in june 2007. It was beautiful: we saw a lot of wildlife, more and more as we expected. We saw many leopards, the animals that we were more interested in. Really wonderful; we also stayed at mala mala; the hotel was more luxurious, but we spent the double and we saw half of the animale comparing to Inyati!

Enthusiastic rangers and trackers at the lodge made our stay exceptionally memorable with all the animals sightings and impressive descriptions of their behavior. We bumped into guests from other resorts during the ride on rainy days and realised yhat Inyati is the only lodge that provides a detachable roof on the jeep, allowing us to be sheltered from the cold rain.
Room comes with full glass panels where we are often greeted with roaming animals. Dining area overlooks a waterhole where we saw hippopotamus, hyena, nyala, impala etc.. A gym is also available which is useful in passing time between the game drives. Meals are communal where guests get to socialise.
One thing to note is the limited privacy for the showering area in the room - they are not separated by curtains or doors from the main area.
Highly recommended for everyone to witness the Big 5 in action! We saw impala hanging from a tree by a leopard, a pride of lions feeding on a buffalo, wild dogs, hyena attempting to steal meat from a leopard, baby rhino drinking milk from it's mom.. A truly unforgettable experience!

Wild Wings Safari booked us 2 nights in the main area of the park and 2 nights at Inyati. Do it that way round and you will better appreciate the 2 very different experiences. At Inyati the tracking team(20-30 years experience) works with other similar establishments: you get very close to lion, leopard and rare African wild dogs as a result. A world renowned animal photographer chose it, which says it all. Beautiful accommodation (you sometimes get the Big Five on the lawn !). There was always something innovative in the evening meal, which is served . An attraction is that Inyati has a family run feel: the trackers eat with you. Don't expect a grand hotel-restaurant type of meal. We gather that some rivals have smarter restaurants and are more exclusive but it seemed to us you were paying an awful lot more for fripperies you don't want in the African Bush: we were delighted with Wild Wings' choice. .

We visited Inyati with our children and in-laws and had wonderful experience. The staff was suberb, knowledgeable and very good with children. The food was great. I would rate this an 11 out of 10. Our guide Pete was one of the best and the lodge fosters a spirit of community and we left there with a great group of new friends. We saw all but one of the Magnificent 7 by day two of our adventure. Great for families and couples. Wine cellar is very respectable and the living is good.

Room Tip: You can ask for extra beds for kids

We were there in October 2008 and even though we have been to other parts of Africa on safari this rated right up with the best. We got so very close to a lot of the animals that we could almost touch them and George and Solly were just so much fun on the game drives. The rooms at Inyati are beautiful and our daughters, my husband and I had a super time.
