We stayed here for 24 hours for a private safari. There are three luxury Safari tents within the reserve and the rest of the accommodation is outside. Its serious worth the money to book a Safari tent as your open to the elements and animals execept Cheetah & Lions. We did a sunset safari and an early morning safari. The...

Dear J4Jackal Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in the Safari tents at Inverdoorn Game Reserve. What a treat with the elephants! It is one of the perks of staying in the tents that you get to see the wildlife roam freely. It’s a pity about the leopards. Cats can be...

Dear MarkBeijing We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Inverdoorn Game Reserve, and that it lived up to expectation. We appreciate your feedback. It is a pity you were not able to see the leopard during your stay. They are nocturnal animals, but can be elusive at times. We hope you return soon to catch a...

We booked 4 nights here & had very good sightings of the few animals there. However 4 nights is far too long as you are doing 8 safaris seeing the same 2elephants,3 rhinos,3 lions,2 hippos as well as Cheetahs, giraffes, zebra, water buffalo, springboks, kudus etc.Therefore I think a maximum of 2nights would be good. The accommodation is good in...

Thank you for your feedback. It is usually advisable by the reservations team that two nights is the ideal number of stays as more than two nights will become repetitive. 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...

First off, this is a game reserve which means they act as a sanctuary for animals brought from other parts of the country or other parts of Africa. You won't be seeing animals in their native habitat. And the animals are meticulously cared for. The accommodations are fantastic. I booked the cheapest room I could and it was splendid. The...

Because of the very high charges I expected far more than I got from this trip. It was a very regimented itinerary and as we queued for our late afternoon game run I could see that some vehicles had nine people in the vehicle while some had only two. Obviously if you pay more then you can have individual attention....

Thank you for your feedback . The prices are quite adequate as it starts from R 2 250.00 pp for a big five safari accommodation(Guest house). The vehicles are equipped to give each guest 360 views of their surroundings and guests could opt for private safaris which allow only yourself and your partner to be on a vehicle. The 10...

The staff is very nice and the place looks great. Furthermore Inverdoorn Safaris seems to do a great job with rescued animals. Because of that, and the typical little Karoo landscape, the safari experience is a bit different from other safaris in SA, with a very flat landscape and "non-wild" rescue Lions, Elefants and Chitas. Nevertheless it is a great...

Thank you for your feedback. Many of our animals have been rescued and, as a result, cannot fend for themselves. This, together with the fact that the Western Cape has been decimated by agriculture and human habitation, means we have to feed many of the animals and take care of those that come from difficult situations (such as the lions...

Allow 3 hours drive from Cape Town (about 45 minutes of this is on unsealed road) and this reserve is designed for an overnight stay. We stayed in the more luxurious suite which includes time to pat the tame Cheetahs. The accommodation and the time with the Cheetahs was a highlight. Also, the surroundings and the food was great.

First - as mentioned by others one must have realistic expectations regarding the safari. The ranger did its best to show us all animals in the game reserve and indeed we saw the lions, gnu and so on. Took nice fotos and enjoyed driving off road!

Thank you for the feedback. We are glad you had great sightings of the wildlife and its surrounding. Each area has different chairs at Inverdoorn.
