Inyati Game Lodge is situated in the western sector of the Sabi Sand Reserve, which shares an unfenced boundary with the Kruger National Park. Animals can roam freely into this area, but luckily, tourists can’t. Well-known for its diverse and abundant game, access is restricted to the general public.
This means you can enjoy intimate sightings without hordes of vehicles. Inyati’s ranger-guides can also drive off-road in the Sabi Sands, which further ensures that you get close enough to capture those perfect wildlife photos, especially of the elusive leopard. It’s not just travellers that have made themselves at home at Inyati.
Monkeys, nyalas, impala and squirrels are among the few creatures that you will see without even leaving the lodge. The wide open lawn leads down to the river with a viewing deck perched right over the river. Here, you can watch the crocodiles baking in the sun, and a variety of birds flying down to enjoy the water. The beds are so comfy that it might be extremely hard to make that early morning game drive, but not to worry; after breakfast you can explore the bush on a guided walk, or opt for the evening drive option.
