We are extremely disappointed!! My husband and I chose inverdoorn game reserve simply for the fact for the cheetah interaction. We even paid extra for the chalet so that we could do the cheetah interaction in addition to the safaris. Upon arrival we were informed that inverdoorn

We booked a one night stay with friends here during a holiday to Cape Town. We arrived at at about 2:30pm as our flight from the UK landed at about 11:30 and we were travelling the 2.5 hours from the airport . Lunch had been served at 1pm prior to an afternoon at leisure before

I came to Inverdoorn last week with 3 other friends. The service here is top notch. Analie, the manager lights up the entire room. She is so sweet and accommodating. Vanessa, our game guide was super knowledgeable and took us on 2 great game drives. Thank you to everyone that

Worth confirming hotel pick up a few days in advance, as there was confusion with my booking. Inverdoorn is about a 2.5 hour drive from Cape Town, so very convenient if you're looking for a day trip, as I was. The reserve doubles as a rescue/conservation centre, and most of

We booked our stay at Inverdoorn online. The website advertised, that with certain higher priced rooms, you would get to meet and pet a tame cheetah, so we went ahead and booked that. It was over $200 a night more expensive. However, when we arrived, and asked about this, we

Yes, game drives were included in room rate. Beware, very few animals in reserve. It's more of a rescue centre than safari, no animals hunting on the reserve.

Hi , we booked through their website directly! I definitely don’t think it’s worth a two night stay. We did it as a self drive, i.e. we drive their and then went on the game drive. If their are a few of you then this really is more logical only because you’d be spending a fare amount simply on the drive out there and back. Is it a massive game reserve? No, But is it a zoo,definitely not. There really are no massive Game reserves in the Western Cape, so unless you are planning stop in Johannesburg and do the Kruger National then this is a great way of seeing the animals. A lot of them are rescue animals but they roam free within a reserve and so it is for this reason people liken it too a zoo. The predators are obviously fenced in to protect them from being poached and from them attacking each other. I enjoyed it immensely but it’s not Kruger National, it is however ideal if you are pressed for time.

I don't have recommendations for a private transfer either, but i believe Inverdoorn can arrange from their office in Capetown city center.

We did not get to try Aquila, but during our stay at Inverdoorn, we saw a lot of people who just went there for a day trip. I got to speak to some of them, and I didn't really get any negative feedback cause you really see a lot in just one drive. I totally agree with Lee L's response. Hope this helped...

"dont go here"
"The term "tented" might scare you away, but it was a superior choice and experience!!"
"The luxury rooms have a separate pool from the main pool area."
"Keep hotel door closed at all times. Tons of bugs fly in, as expected when you're in the wilderness."
"Choose the Kuganha Camp for a couple"
