Tour Details:

Get up close and personal with Africa's famous Big Five and other wild animals on our Full-Day Safari Tour. A picturesque two and a half-hour drive from Cape Town and you arrive at Inverdoorn Game Reserve in the African bushveld. As the Game Reserve is situated in the Western Cape, you will not need to worry about the risk of malaria. Enjoy some of the Cape's most unique flora and fauna, beautiful landscapes, and wildlife all in one day! The elephants and lions have all been rescued by the team at the reserve, after encountering a virtual wipeout due to settlement and agricultural development. You will also find the cheetah rescue and rehabilitation center which was founded in 2001, home to numerous cheetahs.

Inverdoorn Game Reserve

Enjoy an exciting two-hour safari tour across the 10 000 ha game reserve in an open-air 4x4 discovering the Big Five. As you enter, you may come across a herd of antelope before heading down towards the lions’ reserve. You will be amazed by the majestic sight of the male Cape Barbary lion which is a rare find! From thereon you will encounter an endless variety of antelope species, from the beautifully marked oryx, elands, wildebeests, threatened rhinos, springboks, and herds of zebras. After thrilling twists and turns spotting giraffes, elephants and hippos you will arrive at the last stop before returning to the lodge for lunch – the cheetah rescue and rehabilitation center, where you will gain key insight into their behaviour.

The Ceres Fruit Valley

The early morning pick-up from your hotel will give you the chance to see all the beauty of Cape Town's landscapes in the beautiful colours of the morning light. We then head to the world-famous Ceres Valley, named after the Roman goddess of agriculture and fertility, which will have you gazing into the beauty of stunning sceneries and plantations bathing in the beautiful valley encircled by a majestic mountain range. Ceres offers many nature walks, cherry-picking during the season, and a variety of diverse birdlife found in the unique Fynbos vegetation. In winter, you may encounter a magnificent sight of snow falling on the higher mountain regions, making Ceres Valley a highly popular attraction.

The Klein Karoo

The Inverdoorn Game Reserve is located in the Klein Karoo, one of the most magnificent areas in the Western Cape, bounded on the North by the Swartberg (Black Mountain), and on the South by the Langeberg and Outeniqua mountain chains. The semi desert natural region was first explored by European settlers in the late 17th century, who came across only Khoisan people living in this dry area. (drive-by)
