A friend of our traveled with us to Inverdoorn from Cape Town. Be prepared for a bit of craziness while collected all guests traveling to Inverdoorn at 6AM in Cape Town. The van that picked us up wasn't the most comfortable for a long ride, but to and from we saw beautiful scenary. The reserve itself is probably best described... More

Our friend recommended Inverdoorn since they welcome children on game rides. We were excited to go on our first safari, and pleased to be able to see all kinds of 'wild' life. Our guide was fabulous, he told us many stories and facts about the animals, and answered all our questions. We had two rides, and the one in the... More

We recently stayed in Cape Town for a week and only had 1 day dedicated for a mini safari. After looking at other options we settled on Inverdoorn and had a very nice experience. We didn’t have a car so for a charge they picked us up at the Westin about 0645 and we had a leisurely and scenic drive... More

Loved it! Thanks to all the staff for a great family experience. Catering was good and our experienced guide was friendly and informative. The outings ede fun and we saw practically all the animals. Plenty of giraffe and great cheetah sightings and experiences. Though this not a fully "authentic safari experience" as one might get at Kruger it is absolutely... More

My wife and I from UK were introduced to this game reserve by two very friendly ladies at the tourist office in CPT V&A Waterfront when we were trying to book tickets for the more publicised Aquila. They advised this game reserve boasts the advantage of free roaming animals unlike the other. Having only a day to spare with a... More

This is more of a safari experience and felt that way. The guides were friendly and knowledgable however it did feel more like driving around a safari park especially because of the separate lion enclosure. Also the day we went, the staff spent a lot of time setting up the cheetah run which didn't really work. I felt it would... More

It wasn't my first trip at Inverdoorn, but once again I had a very good time there. The area is so beautiful and quiet. You can't be stressed there, a perfect place to disconnect. The pool area is delightful on a sunny day after a nice outdoor lunch and before the first safari (I stayed overnight). Unlike any zoo or... More

Being based in Cape Town for a few weeks, I took some care researching weekend Safari options. I was aware that in this part of the country it is private game reserves rather than truly wild, open national parks - but didn't want the experience to feel artificial, or like a zoo. I'm so glad I chose Inverdoorn. The 2... More

The accommodation, gardens and layout of the hotel area were excellent. We were upgraded to better accommodation for our second night due to some issue with water supply, pipes damaged by builders. The game drive was a bit of a disaster with the guide having no idea and probably thought that we were dumb tourists who didn't know any better.
