unfortunately it is more like a zoo 3 lions 2 elephants 2 hippos 3 rhino's and they are fed, they are however in a wild environment. If this interests you then I would suggest a day trip rather than staying at the lodge it is very expensive and not good for either service or food, if you choose to stay...

This is a game reserve, which means the animals are enclosed (they have 100hectares, TONNES of space to be "free" many of the animals here had been saved from unfortunate situations. This is the kind of safari for an animal lover like myself. Our guide was absolutely fantastic & passed on so much information. We saw a lot of different...

What an amazing experience. I was not sure what to expect. I wanted to show my girlfriend a safari experience and Inverdoorn truly delivered. Our guide and two hosts were great. Yes the Luxury Camp is pricey but it truly exceeded our expectations. Great for a romantic and exclusive getaway. Sadly we did not see the rhinos but we saw...

just a few words: we already did a Safari in the Serengeti. And I think exactly that cause made it a bit unspecatular and usual for us. But nevertheless the service is quite good. Welcome drinks and nice guides as well as vey nice staff members care for you the entire time. After a 13 kms drive over dirt roads...

Game Drive was lovely. Ranger and driver were very informative and made sure we were pleased with amount of time with each animal sighting. Lunch was good not particularly varied but filling. The deal with drinks not being included is kind of silly. Water was 17 Rand so at very least they could have given that to drink! Purchasing alcohol...

Hi Tausha, Thank you so much for your review. Just to allay any fears you may have about the authenticity of the rugs, none of them are real. Naturally, we would never be involved in anything remotely like that. I am overjoyed to hear that you had a good time on safari, though, we pride ourselves on being as informative...

Inverdoorn was one of the loveliest places we stayed in while we were in South Africa. We enjoyed every minute from the early morning Safari, returning for breakfast & relaxation by he pool to the afternoon Safaris & dinner under the stars. We got to see the Big 5 up close & personal. Most of the animals have been lucky...

Having just spent 24 hours at Sanbona, Inverdoorn seemed a poor relative. The animals are in huge fenced in areas so they are not roaming wild and I guess this was the main difference. We had a knowledgeable guide but felt she was just telling us the facts as it was her job. The highlight of Inverdoorn was the time...

Hi cindyjones19, Thank you so much for coming to spend time with us at the reserve! The cheetah interactions are a magical experience and we are so glad that you enjoyed it.

Very well organised day safari with rescued animals. Our guide was extremely informative and humorous too. The photos say it all......though I cannot paste the 255 I took that day into this review! The lunch was tasty too. A day well spent.

Having experienced game drives at Pilanesberg and Kruger Inverdoorn seemes quite mediocre. Maybe it works for a firsttimer. Good sightings and good work with cheetah conservation though. Lovely pool area, friendly safari guides.

I travel a fair amount (though this was my first time in South Africa), and this was honestly one of the best experiences of my life. Getting to Inverdoorn was tricky as it's very remote and the signage isn't fantastic along the way. Our driver got lost a few times and we often felt as if we may be going...
