Unfortunately our stay at Inverdoon was below our expectations. We stayed for the overnight safari and our chalet (and the others next to ours) did not have water for the entire time! We couldn't shower for the entire stay, nor flush the toilet. We only got 2 bottles of water to brush our teeth. The food was also quite disappointing,... More

Being situated on a semi-arid area comes with some inherent difficulties. The water supply we get from the nearby mountain burst and were fixed within 24hours. We do apologise for the inconvenience and our staff did their best to accommodate while resolving this situation. We also apologize for the fact that the food did not meet your expectation as seen...

We booked the trip to an agency in camps bay. A relly nice guy Faruk takes us from our place in cape town and got us there. At the place we got into some land rovers and start going from place to place. What I think is that this safari experience is more like a zoo, you ain't got to... More

Thank you for the feedback We strive to provide guests with a memorable safari experience and take all complaints and criticism seriously in an effort to improve our standards. We apologize that we didn’t meet your expected safari idea. At a game reserve, rangers cannot predict the animal’s behaviour and therefore some day’s animals will go into hiding, and there... More

I love my travel karma. Inverdoorn can accommodate up to 70 guests - but the four of us were lucky to share it only with four more people for the night we stayed there. I hardly know where to begin to describe it. Just driving there gives you a taste of the vastness of this country. The lodge is kept... More

What a wonderful place. Relaxed and rely in the outback with professional rangers. We felt in such a harmony with the wilderness and the cheetahs was a real kick. The pool and the lodges was perfect located next to the game reserve. Perfect dinner and a fantastic buffélunch. We would like everybody to enjoy this game reserve. Amazing.

We recently visited Inverdoorn as a family of 4 adults & 3 children. We did a day trip only. We had previously visited Aquila Game Reserve on a previous South Africa trip, which although we enjoyed, felt like a big zoo. We have also done proper safari's both in the Eastern Cape & Kruger, so we didn't really have high... More

We had some US visitors who were in Cape Town for a few days. They absolutely wanted to have a safari experience. Cape Town does not have the Kruger Park near by so what to do? We searched for places that offered a safari experience. Finally we settled on Inverdoorn which was recommended to us. You need to manage expectations... More

My family visited this site in early January for a 1 night stay. We were welcomed when we arrived and were assigned to our Chalet. Lunch was served about an hour later and was delicious with several fresh salads and barbecued chicken. At 4:30 we were met by Ngoni who was our Safari driver. We were able to see 4... More

We had a very enjoyable overnight stay with two Game Drives at Inverdoorn. It is home to Big Five animals but Elephant Lion and Rhino are in scant supply. The wardens are very welcoming and knowledgeable and do their best to get you a close up view of the many animals around an expansive area of land. The highlights were... More

My tour guide, Clive Friedberg, recommended that we choose Inverdoorn for our safari. Our flights meant that we would be traveling for 33 hours and would only have one day to recover before we began our two day safari. We didn't want another long trek and Clive said Inverdoorn would be perfect...the big five animal groups, 5 star accommodations and... More

Not a lot of animals for the surface but you get to see a few good ones up close enough got photo opps. I recommend also the cheetah encounter, it made my day.
