Nyati Wilderness is an expansive game farm near Lephalale, Limpopo Province of South Africa

Only 3.5 hours from Johannesburg in the beautiful Waterberg, our 6 000 hectare farm boasts 3 of the big-5. The tranquil setting is zigzagged by a multitude of streams and dams across the landscape hosting wonderful bird and wildlife. A dream safari holiday destination within one of Africa’s richest ecosystems. Whether this is your first trip to Africa or you are a seasoned regular, here you can enjoy prolific wildlife, scenic wilderness, comfortable lodges and a choice of activities in a place “where the real Africa begins”.

Being part of a UNESCO Biosphere, Nyati’s mandate is to promote and sustain a multi-usage, thriving wilderness habitat. Thus Nyati is, all at the same time, a safari lodge, a high-conservation wildlife sanctuary, a protected forest, a sustainable hunting preserve and an adventure holiday destination.

Take exciting game drives in our open top safari vehicles which allow unobstructed views of an abundance of plains game as well as four of the ‘big five’. Have fun quad biking, do a spot of tranquil fishing, canoeing, bird watching or, if you prefer, just relax while taking in the panoramic view from a cliff-top swimming pool.

Nyati’s team of highly professional staff will guide and assist in every aspect of your stay with us. Luxurious accommodation, helpful staff and a top chef will ensure you are comfortable throughout your stay at Nyati.
