Inyati Game Lodge

Expect air-conditioned chalets at Inyati Game Lodge along with Big 5 game viewing & plenty of luxuries.

Lying next to the perennial Sand River, Inyati Game Lodge enjoys an enviable location, even by the standards of the Sabi Private Reserve. The riverside forest is the natural habitat of leopards and the river home to hippos and crocodiles. Elephant and buffalo herds make their way past camp to reach water, the calls of local lion prides ring out at night and the birdlife is magnificent.

Inyati has eleven chalets including 4-sleeper Family Chalets as well as Executive Suites that offer enhanced levels of luxury and privacy, making them ideal for honeymooners. All accommodation is air-conditioned and complete with full en suite facilities. Children over the age of eight are welcome at Inyati and join parents on activities; the lodge provides guided safari activities at camp and child minders (at a nominal rate) as well.

With a swimming pool, gym and wine cellar among the facilities, guests at Inyati won’t want for much. Morning and afternoon game drives deliver regular Big 5 sightings and you’ll also have the chance to go on nature walks with your guide, enjoy a spot-lit evening drive and can sit back to epic bird watching. Inyati has an ace up its sleeve too: it’s the only lodge in the Sabi to offer fishing – try your luck for a tigerfish!

Lodge Highlights:

  • Air-conditioned, en suite chalet accommodation
  • Prime Big 5 game viewing region
  • Pool, gym, wine cellar & outdoor dining
  • Family & honeymoon chalets available

About Inyati Game Lodge

Luxury Chalets

  • Air Conditioning
  • Full En Suite Bathrooms
  • Four-Sleeper Family Chalets
  • Private Executive Chalets

Accommodating 25 guests in total, Inyati offers a range of air-conditioned chalets to suit most travellers. The Standard Chalets have four-poster beds and a full en suite bathroom. Several can sleep four, making them ideal for families with younger children. (Inyati Game Lodge welcomes children over the age of eight.)

The Executive Chalets enjoy an added layer of luxury. Compete with king-size bed, indoor and outdoor showers as well as a large sunken bath, these hideaways have private patios with loungers and are perfect for honeymooners and privacy-seeking couples.

Lodge Facilities

  • Swimming Pool, Gym & Viewing Decks
  • Lounge, Bar & Wine Cellar
  • Indoor & Outdoor Dining Areas
  • Curio Shop & Internet Access

With its guest areas looking out over the Sand River and its wildlife, Inyati delivers the quintessential safari lodge experience. You can relax in the pool or in a sun lounger, or work out in the air-conditioned gym. There’s a curio shop to browse and stock up on essentials or you can just enjoy the good-hearted ambience of the lounge and bar.

You’ll sit down to fine meals in the elegant surrounds of the dining room or – as it is normally fine weather here – outdoors in the enclosed boma, a traditional eating area. A 2000-bottle walk-in wine cellar ensures you’ll have something to accompany your supper, served by firelight.

Activities at Inyati Game Lodge

  • Morning & Afternoon Game Drives
  • Spot-lit Evening Drives
  • Guided Nature Walks & Bird Watching
  • Fishing

A measure of Inyati’s enviable position is revealed in the fact that it’s the only lodge in Sabi to offer fishing as an activity. Access to the permanent waters of the Sand River also means Inyati sits in prime big game country and guests can usually count on seeing all members of the Big 5 within the space of two days. The thick riverside forest is particularly good for leopard and with so many antelope in the immediate area, wild dog and cheetah too.

You’ll enjoy two drives a day – one in the early morning and another in the late afternoon, the latter turning into a spot-lit night drive after sunset drinks out in the bush. Take advantage of the late morning nature walks offered: you’ll explore the area around camp with your guide, keen to show you the smaller but no less interesting details of the environment – insects, animal spoor and flowering plants. It’s a great opportunity for bird watchers too – the Sabi Reserve has recorded close to 350 bird species and Inyati’s riverside setting ensures it is home to a healthy number of them.

Families with children aged eight and over are welcome at Inyati. Older children can join game drives and walks while younger ones may prefer to stay at camp for safari activities led by dedicated rangers, backed up by in-house child minders.

We had a wonderful holiday with no hitches, perfectly planned for us and so professional.

Though we live in Australia, Safari online made planning for our family holiday so easy. Walter understood our requirements and nothing was too much trouble. The holiday was everything we wanted it to be and so much more. Every camp was ideally suited for our family and we loved each day, every early morning and evening game drive. Thank you to Walter for his attention to detail and his friendly, professional and caring manner. It was a trip of a lifetime and one that we will talk about forever.

Faultless service, attention to detail and quality of accomodations.

The communications and service from Walter was excellent, and we were continuously fully informed. The information package and book received on arrival were excellent. We felt that we had been allocated carefully selected lodges at each camp and every detail met or exceeded our expectations.
The safari tour was wonderful, and a particular feature was the variety offered at each location which combined perfectly

Carolyn (AU)
The trip was sensational and tailored to our needs. Simply fantastic!

The care by Walter was great from planning to leaving Johannesburg. The accommodations were perfectly chosen. If after a few days you thought it could not be better, you were told otherwise. It was an increase every day, with the 3 days safari in the Kruger, including overnight in tree house, the grand finale.
I would book a trip anytime again at Safari Online.

Exceptional service ensuring a wonderful holiday. Highly recommended

Attention to detail & service provided was first class, from our very first email to the last day of our trip. Walter went above and beyond to ensure that we were notified of any changes, even up to our last day with a change to our flight time, at short notice. The safari was so much more than expected, from the rustic to the exceptional, every camp was different in it’s own way and our highlights are hard to single out just one as each camp was great.

Absolutely Perfect

I was already last year in South Africa and Zambia organized by Safari Online. It was a absolutely gorgeous trip. Everything was perfect. This was the reason I booked this year in May and June an new trip to South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. I got everything I expected. It was a dream again. I know I´m coming back.

Trip of a lifetime: Five countries, six camps, Vic Falls, Big Five plus more game

In June/July 2016 we undertook a trip to Southern Africa to fulfill a lifelong intention. We stayed at six camps, safari style, and had a great time. All of our expectations were met or even exceeded. For example, we never expected to see honey badgers or sitatunga, given the secretive nature of those species, but we did! All travel arrangements and connections worked smoothly, which is astonishing since we had several dozen transfers and meeting points; all of the connecting personnel were prompt, professional, and welcoming.

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver. She responded to our requests promptly and gave us several options with links to each option; we ultimately chose Lukimbi. She then coordinated our flights to and from the property, arranged the drivers necessary to get us from the airport to the lodge and back again, and sent the appropriate paperwork to each of us to verify each step of the process. We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Experience of a lifetime and wonderful service!!

Our extended family (16 travellers, including 8 children under ten years of age!) went on a wonderful safari adventure curated and organised by Walter Kohrs of Safari Online. It could not have been any better than we experienced. From our time in Cape Town, to visiting Victoria Falls, all the way through Zimbabwe and finally wrapping up at the amazing Chobe Safari Lodge, all the locations chosen by Walter were amazing.

His attention to detail, willingness to fine-tune and excellent responsiveness (over a period of several months!) could not have been better. He took time to visit us personally upon our arrival in South Africa, with lovely gift-packs and shared a wealth of advice, recommendations and tips. I cannot recommend Safari Online (and Walter Kohrs in particular) any higher. Absolutely amazing.

Oisin (AU)
Outstanding experience!

We have booked at the Elephant Plains Lodge. We stayed there for a few nights and went on safaris. The lodge, the guide, the food and all the animals we have seen were fantastic. Really an outstanding experience. We can recommend Elephant Plains to everybody. Maybe you will not be as lucky as we were, becaucse we have seen the Big 5! But however you will not forget your stay at Elephant Plains.

Silvio (CH)
Best experience ever!!

They provide us the most taylored and customized honeymoon possible! everything was much better than we expected. We loved the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere and everyone made us feeling so incredibly special and gave us a unique insight. Over our game drives we managed to see all the big five plus some!!
