We did tequila and inverdoorn I loved inverdoorn as its a lot less touristy as further from cape town the guides also have more time to talk and there are more animals as its bigger also at dinner the cheetahs will walk past!!! The accommodation is comfy and beautiful views if you have time get a helicopter flight in

Animals were few and drivers were nice. Food was ok, NOT necessary to stay overnite, the one daytrip would be fine. Reserve management is not always in sync with concierges or sellers of their pacakages

We booked two nights in Inverndoorn and were a bit disappointed (I have done a Kenyan safari before) because after doing a safari, Inverndoorn feels a bit more like a big zoo. Aside from that, the service was very good, our ranger gave us a lot of information about the reserve and the animals at the reserve, food was also... More

Our friends didn't have time for a proper safari so we went to Inverdoorn for the day. What's great is that you can see a ton of animals in a short amount of time, so if you don't have the patience, time or stomach for a true safari, this is a good option. Just don't expect the animals to be... More

Did a midweek one-night stay at Inverdoorn. This was our first safari experience of any kind, having chosen Inverdoorn partly on recommendation, and partly having eliminated the others. Kruger is too far from Cape Town, Aquila we were told and read was more zoo-like. In my opinion having now visited Inverdoorn, it fully met our expectations. Firstly a safari, by... More

My husband and I took the overnight safari package. We had a very friendly driver to pick us up from Cape town. When we arrived, a nice lady welcame us with beverage. We stayed in the guest house, which was in reasonable size and condition. There was a nice swimming pool area nearby which was perfect for sun bathing. The... More

We booked this through Afruka Eco tours and our guide Quenton was an absolute star. It is a 2.5 hour drive from Capetown to get there and out safari started as soon as we lost the mainstream traffic where our guide pointed out various wild life. The last 15/20km is not a proper road, just a rocky service road and... More

The drive to the reserve was as exciting as the safari experience, especially the last stretch. For a Swedish driver it was a new experience driving on a dirt road! Although harrowing, it was taken as part of the whole exciting experience. The chalet was lovely - the service during meals was very good too as was the food. The... More

Can't say enough good things about this place! Our guide, Mariska, was amazing, driving us through the park and tracking down all the animals. She was well informed about their habits and shared a lot of information about the preserve. Lunch was amazing!

It took us 2,5 hours from CT to get there. Be aware , the last 15km is not a proper road, just a rocky service road. You can drive only with 60-70km/h. You can get a pick as well for extra charges. The welcome drink is a coffee or some juices before the drive. Kids under 4 not allowed to... More
