Amidst the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic and in line with public health advice, we have taken the decision to temporarily close Inyati Game Lodge, Sabi Sands Game Reserve with immediate effect. It is our intention to reopen once our Government deems it safe to do so.

Most of our guests have decided to postpone their travels, rather than cancel, and we would encourage others to follow suit. Our reservations team is handling each booking on an individual basis and we will do everything possible to accommodate amended bookings.

For any queries on existing or future bookings, please contact our reservations team at res@inyati.co.za These are unique and challenging times for everyone concerned and our thoughts are with all of you who have been affected by this crisis. Thank you for your patience, understanding and support.

Why did the hippo cross the road……

Why did the hippo cross the road……. Hippos are semi-aquatic and have a diel activity pattern: Hippos feed in savannah grasslands at night and typically rest communally in river meanders (hereafter “hippo pools”) during the day.

Good Work Foundation Produces Covid-19 Video in 6 South African Languages

We are proud to say that our non-profit partner, Good Work Foundation (GWF), has produced a Covid-19 animated infographic that is available in six languages: isiZulu, English, Sepedi, Xitsonga, Siswati and Afrikaans.mailto:www.goodworkfoundation.org

There are 11 official languages in South Africa and while English is understood in our largest cities, there are still many people in outlying areas who speak little, if any, English.

At our property in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, the majority of people come from neighbouring communities where the beautiful Xitsonga language is spoken. It is the first language to about 4,5% of South Africans.

GWF is an education non-profit specialising in digital learning for people living in the rural villages and communities that we partner with. Their programmes reach over 10,000 children and adults in our region, delivering everything from programming and robotics, to IT networking and hospitality training.

Thanks to the many guests who visit us to view our exquisite wildlife, we are able to support the work of GWF. In the midst of this unforeseen global event, thank you for helping us to protect the people who in turn protect the land under wildlife.

Click here to navigate to GWF’s YouTube channel where you can find the video in all six languages, or watch it in English below.

Inkomu Swinene. Thank you very much.

Today we witnessed an epic battle on a small scale #morethanthebig5

Today we witnessed an epic battle on a small scale. A Giant Land Snail being attacked by a Peaceful Giant Ground Beetle larvae.Contrary to the beetles name the snail was bombarded with constant vicious attacks.
The snails only defense was to use its mass and attempt to push the beetle larvae off with it’s shell. The tenacious beetle would then burrow under the shell to get to the gastropods fleshy body.

We left the battle in a relative stale mate with the snail retracted and the Beetle larvae still attached. #armchairsafaris #purenature #morethanthebig5

For the love of Africa, don’t cancel, postpone your travel

“We know that you might not be able to be here with us, so in an effort to keep you connected to our amazing wildlife, we’ll be sharing some of our sightings with you. We hope that our #ArmchairSafaris bring a smile to your face at this difficult time! 😊

 

INYATI GAME LODGE : COVID-19 Update

Inyati logoINYATI GAME LODGE : COVID-19 Update

Dear Valued Partners and Guests

Amidst the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic and in line with public health advice, we have taken the decision to temporarily close Inyati Game Lodge, Sabi Sands Game Reserve with immediate effect. It is our intention to reopen on 1 May 2020 provided that it is safe to do so. While this was a hard decision for us to make, we believe it is the socially responsible thing to do and it is important to take the required precautionary measures to protect our team, our guests, our families and our communities. The global trend is towards social distancing, self-isolation and the cancellation of non-essential travel.

Most of our guests have decided to postpone their travels, rather than cancel, and we would encourage others to follow suit. Our reservations team is handling each booking on an individual basis and we will do everything possible to accommodate amended bookings.

For any queries on existing or future bookings, please contact our reservations team at res@inyati.co.za

These are unique and challenging times for everyone concerned and our thoughts are with all of you who have been affected by this crisis.

Thank you for your patience, understanding and support.

Warm bushveld regards

Social distance

Sabi Sands’ first trail run #TeamInyati

#TeamInyati The Extra Mile, sponsored by Investec Rhino Lifeline is the Sabi Sands’ first trail run. The 10km or 21km trail traverses through the scenic areas on the borders of the Sabi Sands Wildtuin area.

The funds raised from the event go back into the communities around the area. This annual run, organised by More Community Trust in partnership with the Sabi Sand Pfunanani Trust, Endangered Wildlife Trust, and Good Work Foundation, has been described as one of the toughest, heart-warming, fun, and community-driven events that many of these seasoned runners have ever done.

Well done to all of the incredible runners.

Come join us in 2021 for the trail run with a heart!
