Overall experience at Inverdoorn was fantastic. Good clean and comfy accommodation and good food but the absolute highlight were the safari drives themselves. We were there for two nights so did a number of drives and each of them equally stunning and informative as the last. Our guide (Melissa or Marissa - sorry can't remember) is a true asset to...

We stayed overnight at inverdoorn game reserve with our grandchildren. Overall a nice experience especially for the grand children as they live in Hong Kong and are not used to animals walking About.. Unfortunately our granddaughter left a hand crafted T shirt of hers with her name embroidered on it behind. I phoned the next dY and was promised to... More

No, this probably isn't the best way to do a true safari. And, it is a bit rushed if doing it in one day from Cape Town. But, it is an excellent place to get a taste of a wonderful experience. I found the drivers who picked us up and took us back to Cape Town friendly and helpful. One... More

Booked this for my wife's 50th birthday. We followed a long dirt track to an oasis . Outstanding from the start I booked one of the luxury chalets and it didn't disappoint. Had our own private swimming pool overlooking the baby rhinos. Food and service was superb. We did an evening and early morning safari which was fantastic. Limited to... More

This is not a lodge but a dirty farm... It is good to see all animals in a limited space of time. But has nothing to do with wildlife. The ambassador suite was nicely decorated but dirty , tv not working, internet not available ,, only at reception area Quality of food is poor , chicken or fish in a... More

I was there on September 2012 :) I spent 4 amazing peaceful days at Inverdoorn. I was taken by the nature, the animals, the mountains.... highly recommended. It is distant almost from anything, I think (but I'm not sure) they had WiFi. You can drive freely there to the nearest town if you'd like. and there are plenty of safari... More

Myself and my partner stayed in the ambassador suite over night 4th march and we had an absolutely brilliant stay. Please don't listen to the reviews claiming it is a "fake safari with fences everywhere". The reality is inverdoorn is a private reserve which has rescued and rehabilitated a number of animals and is now providing them with a chance... More

We did an overnight package on March 13-14,and were impressed. However it should be realised that this place is a very long drive from CT. A day trip would be a bit of a long day indeed. On arrival, although we were very early, we were warmly greeted ,and invited to use the facilities while we waited. Our room in... More

A beautiful landscape, the best and most full filling game drives - everything what nature can offer. The French owners invested a lot of money to create this paradise, but are missing out on the most important fact in the tourism industry- hospitality. Check in remembered me on a reception in a train station, lunches, diners and breakfast was a... More
