The experience here was good. The staff were friendly and knowledgable. The lodging was comfortable and the food good. The animals were well cared for and the park large enough for a great game experience. This is a great outing from Cape Town if you only have a day or two but if you are looking for a genuine Safari... More

We spent a week in Cape Town and then added a day to our trip to spend at Inverdoorn before flying out. Inverdoorn was able to arrange transportation from our hotel in Cape Town and then from Inverdoorn to the airport. That simplified the logistics. Between Friday noon and Saturday noon, everything was organized. We had an evening game drive... More

We organised a day trip to visit Inverdoorn Game Reserve directly with the reserve. Our driver picked us up at our hotel exactly on time, just before 7 a.m. His van was immaculate and he, himself, was extremely personable. In describing the different settlements that we passed on our way to Inverdoorn, it became clear to us just how multi-cultural... More

Despite the weather being miserable, i was impressed by the overall experience offered by Inverdoorn. Our game driver was knowledgable about the animals and demonstrated a passion for their conservation and protection. Both game drives were cold experiences and the additional blankets provided were a godsend. The morning drive was particularly wet and she persisted for the full 2.5hrs and... More

After visiting the Garden Route Game Reserve a year ago, we had some idea of what to expect. Arriving at Inverdoorn and finding out we were the only guests, was strange, but we were very happy with the reception. We were offered coffee and tea and then taken to our rooms. Since we were traveling as an extended family group,... More

Our safari was booked through Afruka Safaris and Tours. As our driver, Peter, took us to the preserve, he regaled us with history and tales of the Preserve and the surrounding Karoo. Our greeting with a fresh fruit cocktail and our check in to our wonderful chateau were wonderful signs our time to come. After a buffet lunch on the... More

It was really important to us that we were visiting a place that was nothing like a zoo, and when we found Inverdoorn, we were willing to make the ~2hr drive to get to it. Be aware that the last 20km (I think it's about that? but the website should tell you) is on a dirt road, so you either... More

My wife and I went to Inverdoorn for a day trip, so the review doesn't reflect the accommodation etc. As a day out we found it to be fantastic. We were picked up from Capetown early morning for the 2+hour drive, the guy driving (sorry, I forgot his name) was really good, answering questions we might have. There is audio... More

The food was disgusting and cold. The room was dirty and had many bugs inside, both dead and alive. The staff was rude and not helpful. The actual safari was a waste of time and the animals we were promised to see, we didn't.
