It is hard to know where to begin... two stars only because the game drives were very good and we liked the cheetah rehabilitation. We arrived and were left to sit in the 40 degree heat for half an hour for someone to check us in... this set the tone. The place is not managed well and the staff do...

We stayed here for 2 nights. The room we were assigned was meant to be a family room, but it was small, right by the main path and really not very nice. We were moved to a better room, but it wasn't a great start. We came with our 2 year old daughter and although there is babysitting avaliable we...

We were a group,of 8 thwt went together. Each and everyone of our group was thrilled with our experience, and that is not an easy thing. The rooms were clean & tastefully decorated. Our food was very good, the staff knowledgeable and accommodating. Of course the best part was the safaris. They really make sure you get to see and...

We stayed overnight and had an afternoon and a morning tour. Its a small reserve but you are able to get up close to the animals and the drivers are knowledgeable and obliging for those who want to take photos or ask lots of question. The chalet accommodation was comfortable, the food was OK, although the BBQ was a bit...

We stayed for 3 days, 2 nights, participated in 4 safari tours as well as the cheetah interaction and honestly had the time of our lives. The safari tours were spectacular (our guide, Chantelle, is the best - funny, knowledgeable, accommodating and super patient even though we asked approximately a bajillion questions). You get unbelievably close to the animals and...

It's been a year since we visited this place and I am still coming to terms with the hospitality aspect of it. We classified the food as inedible. The food was described as signature food however we and most of our fellow guests thought it was laughable. When plates go back into the kitchen with one bite taken then owners...

The tours are top notch and deserving of 5 stars. The accommodations not so much. We are manned on staying for 2 nights but left after one. The accommodations were probably 3 stars, but that would only be if there was water. There wasn't enough water to flush a toilet or brush your teeth for the time we were there....

Dear Michael G Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your day trip at Inverdoorn Game Reserve. The pool is great this time of year, so it is good you got some time to lounge between the safari. Inverdoorn is a private game reserve that focuses on wildlife conservation. Most of the animals here...

If you have to do one Safari close to Cape Town, it has to be Inverdoorn. And if you do Inverdoorn, make the experience magical by taking the Kuganha tented camp package. It met everything we expected of a "glamping" experience! The three tents were a ride away from the main resort area. Not exactly sure if they were in...

My husband has always wanted to go on safari so for his 40th birthday we booked a 2 night stay at Inverdoorn staying in the Kuganha tented camp followed by a 2 night stay at Aquila in a premier cottage. From the first minute of arriving at Inverdoorn everything was perfect. We were driven round to the Kuganha tented area...
