Game drives are conducted in customized open land rovers, providing guests with quiet, state-of-the-art comfort and safety.
View Africa’s most impressive wildlife on morning and afternoon/ evening game drives in open 4-wheel drive safari vehicles with expert guides and Shangaan trackers.
Guests can also enjoy interpretive guided bush walks offering the bird watcher, dendrologist, botanist and the nature enthusiast the ultimate bush experience. Game drives traverse an area of 10 000 hectares and strict vehicle limits at sightings ensure the exclusivity of your game viewing experience. Off-road driving ensures that you have the best possible view of any exceptional sighting and rangers are constantly in touch with each other to keep track of animal movements.
The morning safari departs at sunrise and the evening drive leaves late enough for guests to enjoy a bush sunset with sundowners.
Should you want complete privacy it is possible to hire a vehicle on a private basis. Exclusive use of a safari vehicle will need to be reserved well in advance. Prices available on request.
Leopard, lion, elephant, buffalo, white rhino, cheetah, hyena, giraffe, zebra, waterbuck, hippo, wildebeest, kudu and many other mammal and bird species occur. Inyati means buffalo in Shangaan / Tsonga which is one of the languages of the local people, and Inyati is home to this powerful, indomitable breed.
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.
Inyati has telescopes for guests to gaze up at the night sky. We also offer spellbinding talks on the moon, various planets and constellations that are so clearly visible in the crisp, clean night air - unhindered by the pollution, lights and air traffic that clutter the city skies. Discover the Milky Way, and the many constellations characteristic of the southern skies.
