Inyati Game Reserve in the Sabi Sands
Inyati Game Reserve is situated in the world acclaimed Sabi Sands, adjoining the Kruger National Park. Inyati (meaning buffalo in Shangaan – the language of the local people), is home to this powerful breed along with the rest of the Big Five.
Inyati Game Reserve consists of ten luxury, air-conditioned, thatched chalets with en-suite bathrooms offer the discerning traveller a welcome retreat after a day of being at one with nature.
By limiting the lodge to ten chalets, Inyati Game Reserve is able to cater for individual preferences when it comes to meal times and venues, with breakfasts and candle-lit dinners deep in the bush proving most popular.
Tranquility and service excellence are the hallmarks of Inyati. Hand-picked staff will tend to your every need. There is a swimming pool and a fully equipped, air-conditioned gym. Tree Tops is a small serene conference centre guarded by giant, leafy trees. For the anglers, fishing facilities and assistance are available in the Sand River. Skilled rangers and experienced trackers share some of their bushveld secrets. A dawn or dusk game drive in a specially equipped, open Land Rover or a thrilling foot safari are the ideal ways to experience this unique African theatre. A close encounter with the Big Five in their natural habitat is an awe-inspiring life experience.
Inyati Game Viewing
Game drives are conducted in specially customized open land rovers, providing guests with quiet, state-of-the-art comfort and safety. An area of over 10 000 hectares is traversed in search of animals in their natural habitat.
Game drives take place throughout the year at optimum viewing times when game activity is generally at its peak.
The morning safari departs at sunrise and the evening drive leaves late enough for guests to enjoy a bush sunset with sundowners.
A must for all nature enthusiasts is the bush walk. This affords guests the ultimate, close to the wild experience and a chance to focus on the smaller bush inhabitants including birds, insects and butterflies.
One can discover the interesting world of trees, grasses, flowers, geology and ecology. Occasionally game can be seen on walks – including the “Big 5”.
Bush walks take place either before or just after breakfast, depending on the time of the year and the prevailing weather conditions.
