We booked our tour with this company after being duped by another company that turned out to be a fraud. Theresa Cole (the representative) was incredibly helpful, comforting, and professional. She was able to accommodate us for a tour the following day despite the short notice. She followed up with us constantly as promised. In regards to the safari, it... More

Thank you for your review. The safari at Inverdoorn is a great entry level to the world of wildlife safaris. It is the best that we can provide close to Cape Town with a daily tour option. We can arrange safari thorughout Southern Africa including Chobe, Kruger National Park and Shamewari. Glad you enjoyed the sharks. Pity about the company... More

Could've been really cool, but we didn't see any sharks. I understand this was not usually the case though.

Hi Andy, We are sorry you did not see any sharks. Occasionally nature does not oblige. You should have received a voucher for another trip. When you next plan to Cape Town, get in touch and we will do our best get you up close and personal with our best friend - The Great White Shark! More

We were recommended a very high class game reserve, very expensive, and we were given good advise on which is good with a 10 year old child. However it would have been good if we were advised it will be very cold during that time of the year and we were not well prepared for the cold.

Thank you for your review. We have taken you suggestion on the weather to heart. The small karoo can cold in the morning in our winter months. I am glad that you found Sanbona to be a high quality premium wildlife reserve. We try and give great advice all the time. More

The timing of the trip was very early like 3:30 am and the problem was they told us about the time just the night before.

Thank you for your feedback. We can only do the pick up times the day before as launch times are subject to the tides and weather conditions. In summer the pickups can be as early as 2am as late 9am This should have been told you on confirmation of your booking. Please accept our apologies for the confusion. More

We spent more or less 24h in Inverdoorn Game Reserve, we expected a lot of emotions and we had much more back! The ranger was well prepared, patient and attentive to all the people's need. Althought the rain, we experienced magic moments!! th eaccomodation and the service too were high level, so, just recommended!
