Reviews of Inverdoorn

Inverdoorn covers one of the LittleKaroo's valleys, not far fromthe Cape. The reserve covers nearly 10,000 hectares and contains nearly 1,200 wild animals.

My suggestion:
Go there to meet the cheetahs and if you have never done a safari. The reserve is particularly family-friendly.

Inverdoorn is one of the best private reserves around the Cape, which is not a safari area. The owners are French and very nice. You can go there for the day without having to sleep on site, which is more cost-effective.

The highlight is meeting the reserve's two cheetahs who are in captivity as they are orphans that have been rescued. They aren't able to look after themselves in the wild. At lunch time, you can stroke them and listen to them purring away. It's amazing!

Everyone obviously wants a photo stop. You also help with feeding seven cheetahs who race for their food (this stimulates their hormones). These cheetahs are semi-free; they were born in captivity but are being taught bit by bit how to survive in the wild.
