Excellent place to visit and get introduced to wild life in Africa. The game reserve is also geared at preservation and re-training of animals, with some knowledable staff. The place offers excellent accommodation (guest house being good enough for one night stay) and numerous staff looking after you. The breakfast and dinner were excellent.

First off, Chantall was amazing. She's so passionate and very knowledgeable. The room is very spacious. The bed is comfortable with a generous queen size bed. Luxury to its best! I was glad to finally up close and personal with the animals and it was such a phenomenal experience.

For a day trip safari, this quenched enough of my thirst to be able to check off the checkbox of the wildlife in Africa (e.g., lions, hippos, giraffes, etc.). However, this is hardly a safari with wildlife in what I would call their true natural habitat. They were mostly rescued animals so it ended up feeling more like a free... More

We took two day safari here and got upgraded to luxury chalet, chalet and scenery at the park were amazing. Safari guide was friendly, all the staff was friendly and helpful. Perfect getaway from the city. Only regret was that we stayed only one night.

Ranger gave real interesting insight of their animals. Really hope they could have more animals there. Do note not to follow google map for driving, it will bring you to other side of the park. The lunch, simple.... more salads than hot dishes.

Having just stayed at Inverdoorn, I felt compelled to write a review. We had arrived after a near 3 hour drive from Cape Town, we had an immediate warm welcome and provided with a welcome drink sat in the shade whilst our booking paperwork was located. Within minutes we were shown to our room for the night, we opted for... More

I've been reluctant to send family and friends to any of the 'local' game reserves close to Cape Town as I had read that many are no more than a zoo with animals in enclosures or tagged. Instead I recommended friends visiting Cape Town to take a long road trip to Eastern Cape/Garden Route which is usually a 5 or... More

We booked this tour with African Eagle Tours in the belief that it was a 2 hour journey each way and a large game reserve but we were disappointed. We travelled in from Milnerton just outside Cape Town and arrived 3hrs 45mins later with one photo opportunity and a whistle stop breakfast pause in the middle of nowhere. The welcome... More

Thank you for your feedback. African Eagle is a third-party company/tour operator, and therefore, the route and time they take to get to Inverdoorn often cannot be controlled by Inverdoorn. If you have perhaps booked via Inverdoorn, our transfers to and from Cape Town are 2.5 hours with a stop in Ceres, if guest prefer. This matter needs to be... More
