Detailed Description

En-suite chalets

Inyati consists of eleven chalets. Each air-conditioned chalet features an en-suite bathroom, with twin hand basins, separate bath, shower, and w.c. Inyati Game Lodge welcomes a maximum of 25 guests.


Meals can be enjoyed on the open patio area (verandah) overlooking the Sand River. A combination of traditional South African and international dishes are always on the menu.
Bush braai – experience a traditional South African braai (barbecue) under a blanket of stars in the heart of the bushveld. The crackling fire, friendly conversation and delicious food add to the excitement of hearing a lion’s roar in the distance.
Boma – a traditional African setting where unique delicacies are prepared on an open fire. Enjoy the friendly company of your ranger while being entertained with bushveld stories and experiences. The rhythmic beat of a traditional African dance will entertain guests, while aromas of food being prepared on the open fire fill the night sky.
Create the perfect pairing with Inyati’s walk-in wine cellar, stocked with over 2,000 bottles of selected wines and champagnes, including some of South Africa’s finest.


The game drive activities at Inyati are by qualified, passionate and knowledgeable guides and trackers. With over 10,000 hectares (24 700 acres) of traversing wilderness, no two game drives are ever the same. Shangaan trackers sit up at the front of the safari vehicle looking for fresh animal tracks, while guides drive with amazing skill into ravines and through bush thicket in pursuit of elusive animals, simultaneously wowing guests with their knowledge and unforgettable stories.

Open safari vehicles, seating between 6 and 10 visitors, head out into the wild under the expert guidance of experienced guides and insightful trackers.
Guests are able to get in close contact with Africa’s most exciting wildlife species, and are presented with unparalleled photographic opportunities.
Early morning safaris head out as the sun rises and as the bush stirs to life. The guide and tracker teams search for animals by tracking their spoor, and by listening for the tell-tale signs of activity.

The bush has its own language, and it is fascinating to watch those who possess the tools to encode it. Late afternoon safaris commence as the sun burns its way towards the horizon. The animals are now getting more active, many preparing for the great hunt after dark. After sundowners, the drive continues with the aid of powerful spotlights which reveal nocturnal species in another world.

Guests can also enjoy interpretive guided bush walks offering the bird watcher, dendrologist, botanist and the nature enthusiast the ultimate bush experience. Our professionally trained guides cater to guests’ preferences and fitness levels to create an wonderful wilderness walking experience.
