Inyati Game Lodge, Sabi Sand Reserve
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 March 2013

Our stay (3 nights) at Inyati in October 2012 has been definitely the high light of our trip to South Africa. The lodge is really very snug, rooms are spacious, clean and nicely decorated, the food is prepared flavorful and all the staff is so friendly and obliging. And thanks to our guide Piet and Nelson our tracker, the game drives were just marvelous, of course including the big five and many more animals. No doubt, we will come back (next time by plane, since the road is quite bumpy).

I have had many experiences during my career as tourist guide and tour operator but Inyati will remain a highlight and I will highly recommend this lodge for a truly wonderful stay, beautiful rooms, friendly and helpful staff and good food. Our tracker Nelson and guide Piet did a great job in making the game watching an experience far above any expectations. The peace, tranquility and beautiful setting of the lodge makes this an outstanding venue.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful. Room 1, 2 and 3 have a beautiful view of the river

Me and my partner spent 3 nights at Inyati Game Lodge and there is no words to explain wonderful time we had.
What a fabulous place to take Safari. Everything is First class.
Wonderful staff and accommodation ( overlooking Sabie River ). Food out of this world ( very traditional).
The most important :our driver/ ranger Khimbini and tracker Richard are passionate about animals and their behaviour. Absolutely amazing people with Huge knowledge.They made every drive unique and yes we were in touching distance of leopards, lions, elephants etc...
Highly recommended and definitely will be back.

My husband and I did our first safari and stayed at the Inyati Game Lodge. Very nice place. The staff is great, very helpful and knowledgeable. The rooms are nice and the wild game are close and great for camera shots. I would highly recommend this facility.

We travel to Africa every year and booked Inyati in anticipation of a fantastic leopard sighting - and we were not disappointed! Our family of 5 (8 in total as children had friends in tow) and another couple were met by very friendly staff who provide a welcome drink and showed us to our very luxurious and comfortable accomodation. A delicious lunh was provided and then we were whisked off to fine the elusive leopard! Dayone was most obliging and gave us a full demonstration as to how a successful leopard maintains his territory with wonderful leopard roars! Back to the lodge for a lovely dinner and a wonderful sleep. Up early - and back on the tracks of Dayone - crashing through the bush was highly entertaining and quite an adrenilin rush! And boy oh boy - first on the menu was the Selati Males (lions) which we maged to catch in the nick of time as they were heading into he next private reserve 's conservancy - WOW! THEN were we rewarded with the BEST leopard photos ever....We had Dayone all to ourselves for 15 minutes before the other vehicles arrived - WOW! We jokingly said to Pete - now all we need is a black rhino (we haven't seen one sice 1995!) ...and guess what - that is what he provided! Not only that, but as we had a comfort brea we nearly bumped into a white rhino! Then on to a few buffalo and some elis - the big 5 in a few shprt hours...We were exhilerated! Happy campers then enjoyed a delicous breakfast - if only we could have stayed a week....highly recommended! (Only downer was that we had advised them that it was our friend's anniversary - but nothing special was provided..;-( minor, but would have been that cherry on top for them)...GO!!!

Room Tip: They are all great! We had standard rooms for the kids and an executive chalet for us which had an o...

My family and I spent a week on safari at Inyati and the experience was absolutely marvelous. We saw more big game than we ever imagined and we were treated like royalty. The rooms were comfortable and secure and the food was outstanding. We would wake up to cape buffalo grazing 20 feet from our window or an elephant so close you could smell him. The guides were wonderful, informative and truly fun to spend the day with. This is what Africa is all about. Will I go back? You bet!. My family fell in love with Africa, its people, its culture and its wildlife.

1st rate Safari Game Lodge, excellent Safari guides and trackers, getting you close up to the Big-5 animals, as well as other creatures living in the Private Reserve areas of the huge Kruger National Park of South Africa. Excellent staff and service. The office staff need more training as they fumble quite a bit on making the right arrangement and getting you answers to non-routine questions. Make sure you look up information yourself regarding opportunities and costs of services outside the Lodge itself, as they often give you the wrong details and info. The breakfast buffet is outstanding, while the dinner meals could benefit from closer attention as to how the meats are prepared, as they tend to be tough and tasteless. The side dishes are excellent and if you ask for a special dish, it is usually well prepared. Overall a highly recommended and excellent experience.

Room Tip: All the rooms are fine, especially the ones not adjacent to the eating areas of the Lodge.
