Game Drives

Game drives are conducted in specially customized open land rovers, providing guests with quiet, state-of-the-art comfort and safety. An area of over 10 000 hectares is traversed in search of animals in their natural habitat.Each vehicle is manned by a team comprising a qualified Ranger and a highly skilled Tracker.

Game drives are conducted throughout the year at optimum viewing times when game activity is generally at its peak, i.e. early morning and late afternoon into evening.

The morning safari departs at sunrise, and the evening drive leaves late enough in the afternoon for guests to enjoy a bush sunset, and the opportunity to view nocturnal creatures after dark. The spectacular southern night skies, especially vivid during the winter months, provide guests with stunning views of famous constellations such as the Southern Cross, Orion (in summer) and Scorpio (in winter) on clear evenings.

The Bush Walk

A must for all nature enthusiasts is the bush walk (i.e., foot safari). 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 also discover the interesting worlds of trees, grasses, flowers, geology and ecology - of course, occasionally big game can be seen on walks - including the Big 5. Bush walks take place either just before or just after breakfast, depending on the time of year and prevailing weather conditions.

Game viewing remains superb all year round - not just on safari, but also at the Lodge, due it’s setting on the banks of the Sand River which attracts game continually. At any time of year, whether on a game drive, bush walk or even on the Lodge patio, your encounters with the wild at Inyati will be very special, and unforgettable.
