We did not see any sharks. The only good thing I can say about this tour is they did not steal our money...well not literally, and we were picked up on time by a courteous driver. For over $200 Canadian dollars we expected some commentary...More

All very good organized. Patty to see that resorts like this (and the animals) suffer so much because of the lacking water.

Good tour, close to Cape Town. Got to see 4/5 of the Big Five, nice reserve. Good Lunch. Shop around for prices as they seem to vary. Reserve was Inverdoon, not as commercial as some other reserves, they care about the animals.

Dear Eileen, Thank you for the kind review and the feedback you provided. From time to time all the operators offer special deals - We will match any written quotes! We love Inverdoorn because of its focus on the welfare of the animals.

Thank you for your review. I think there has been a misunderstanding. Inverdoorn is a 10,000ha reserve. Due to its size the lions are kept in a separate 1000ha area to keep the park sustainable. Inverdoorn serves as an introductory safari. For longer safaris with...More

Thank you for a great review. The weather can be really tricky. Thank you for booking your tour early in your stay in Cape Town. This gave us the opportunity to reschedule when the weather did play along.

The safari is 2.5 hours from Cape Town. We do have availability this week for both the Safari and the Shark Cage Dive tours. If you book on our website, you will be able to get discount on both tours.
