Tripadvisor comments Inyati Lodge
Inyati Game Lodge is the perfect place to be when you want to spent some thrilling but also relaxing safari time. The rooms and facilities are superb. We even had a lovely outdoor shower. The staff is overly friendly and helpfull, the service was grand. The rangers and trackers for sure know their job :-) We have seen sooo much wildlife regardless of the prejudice of "you will not spot a lot in summer time due to the vegetation"....! They sure take care of you too :-) Also the food was great and in between drives we enjoyed relaxing at the pool - with the lovely view on the river (and spotting opportunities ;-) )LionLT from Hennef, Germany
We spent 3 nights at Inyati over the New Year. This was our first safari and the whole experience far exceeded our expectations. The Lodge is charming with a relaxing atmosphere. Our room, an Executive Suite was very comfortable and the staff extremely pleasant and accommodating. Our ranger Khimbini and tracker Richard ensured we saw the Big 5 and many more within the first two game drives. We were so close to the leopards on many occasions and also baby lion cubs with their parents. At one stage I counted at least 35 elephants, of all sizes, surrounding our vehicle. The “walking safari” was also very enjoyable. Food was very good and we spent the afternoons relaxing around the pool. Would highly recommend.ShiresUK from Windsor, UK
