Fantastic resort with good food and friendly and accommodating staff. The facilities are beautiful and the views surrounding you are breathtaking. spent one night in the resort and had two safari's which were both life-time experiences! The guides are professional and will make sure you get to see all kinds of animals on their preserve!

We visited Inverdoorn on 05 May 16 and went on sunset safari, watched cheetah rehabilitation feeding, stayed overnight and then did a sunrise safari. We had an amazing time, were looked after very well, the food was plentiful and fantastic, staff were knowledgeable about the park and the animals living there. I booked the visit via email from the UK... More

Travel just 2.5 hours on a very scenic route to an enchanted reserve. Mostly paved but a short distance on gravel to the very well kept main lodge. Friendly faces transfer you by 4 wheeler to the Kunganha Tented Safari Camp. Ten minutes away awaits 3 tented camps where your every need will be cared for. We were a group... More

an amazing place to visit for the entire family only about 3 hours from Cape Town. Deluxe accommodation and wonderful food. The game drives are wonderful, we saw all the big 5 and the interaction with the cheetah was a dream come true for the children.

We fell in love with a cheetah called velvet. We booked the luxury accommodation choice and got the most spectacular view, a different pool and special dining venue plus interaction with the cheetah.

If you can't get to one of the national parks in South Africa like Kruger, there are several game reserves. I booked an overnight safari experience at Inverdoorn (one afternoon drive, one early morning drive) and stayed in the guesthouse. The guesthouse accommodation is the cheapest, and it's basic but clean and comfortable. If you're looking for a quiet place... More

Thank you for your feedback. Inverdoorn is a 10 000 hectare reserve and the biggest of its kind close to Cape Town. However when compared to the reserves and parks in other parts of the country, particularly the north, the difference is enormous and will inevitably make us seem tiny in comparison. Inverdoorn strives to provide the best safari experience... More

I am extremely supportive of this nature reserve as all (most?) their animals are rescued and I am a huge animal activist. The safari's were amazing. We were unable to see Giraffes as they were hiding but that's nature. I can't fault the reserve for that. If I expected that, I may as well go to a zoo. Our safari... More
