Star Rating:

Inyati Game Lodge is located in the prestigious private conservation area, the Sabi San Wildtuin where you experience the delicate mix between the bush and luxury. 

Two rivers supply the game reserve with a valuable water source. The Sand River flows through the reserve for 50km (31 miles) from north west to south east whilst the Sabie River flows on the southern boundary. The sustenance of these rivers ensures that this area enjoys one of the highest and most bio-diverse wildlife populations of any area in Africa. Over two hundred different species live in abundance, whilst the ever changing bird life provides even the most experienced ornithologist with rare finds. Such is the environment that the wildlife, save for the migratory birds, remain in their territories all year round.

 Inyati Game Lodge is a beautiful lodge located in the prestigious private conservation area, the Sabi San Wildtuin where you experience the delicate mix between the bush and luxury. Inyati Game Lodge is situated in 65,000 hectares in one of the world’s largest & most prestigious private conservation areas, the Sabi Sand Wildtuin, adjoining the renowned Kruger National Park. The perennial Sand River runs through Inyati with its golden African sunshine and cool, shady hideaways. At night, wildlife sounds fill the star-studded sky. Lions roar, jackals howl and hyenas laugh. African drums respond.

Inyati consists of seven luxury chalets and four executive chalets. Each air-conditioned suite features generous spaces, en-suite bathrooms with twin hand basins, separate bath, shower and w.c. The lodge accommodates 22 guests.

Off-road driving ensures that you have the best possible view of any exceptional sighting and guides are constantly in touch with each other to keep track of animal movements.



While Inyati is an ideal destination for families, the lodge is more suited to children eight years and older. We request that proof of the child’s age be supplied when making a reservation. This is a precautionary measure as Inyati Game Lodge is located in an unfenced reserve.

A child aged between 8-10 years and sharing a chalet with two full paying adults, will pay 50% of the per person sharing rate.

Children in their own suite will pay the standard adult rates.

Children are permitted on game drives at guides’ discretion.

Children above 16 may participate in walking safaris – for younger children we offer child-friendly walks around the lodge with experienced guides.

Child minding is done by lodge staff and can be arranged on arrival at a nominal hourly rate.



Inyati Game Lodge rates are quoted in South African Rands and we have quoted them in US Dollar, therefore rates may be subject to change due to currency exchange but is currently set at a steady rate of USD = 7.5 ZAR. If you pay via bank transfer you can request Rand rates opposed to USD.
