Inverdoorn Game Reserve and Iziba Safari Lodge is located in the Ceres Karoo, just two and a half hours from Cape Town. Stretching across 10 000 hectares, Inverdoorn is the largest private wildlife reserve in the area, providing sanctuary to an abundance of wildlife. The game reserve offers a premier safari experience including game drives, luxury accommodation and incredible insight into the rescue and rehabilitation of the cheetah.

 A Wildlife Sanctuary

Driving over the well-beaten track that winds through the reserve, you may come across any number of animals. Making their way through the succulent plant life that characterises the floral diversity of the Karoo, you will find a myriad of antelope such as kudu, eland, impala, springbok and gemsbok. You will be captivated by the distinct markings of the zebra and the graceful gait of the giraffe, while the brute power of the buffalo and the majestic beauty of the Cape Barbary lion will astound you.

Perched atop a safari vehicle or standing in a lookout point within the heart of the reserve you will be lost in the awesome vastness which surrounds you, as well as the solitude of the Karoo. Rangers add a rich element of humour and storytelling to the safari with anecdotes of the animals, wildlife facts and, most importantly, the threats facing many species today.

At the safari lodge guest have the opportunity to unwind, and may even see the cheetahs going on daily walks with their handlers. This beautiful, big cat is the heart and soul of Inverdoorn. In 2001 Cape Cheetah was established, which seeks to rescue and rehabilitate cheetahs and, ultimately, release them into the wild.

In 2012 Inverdoorn became home to the Big 5. Since its inception, the reserve has re-introduced many of the members into the region through their conservation efforts. The male lion was rescued from trophy hunting, while rhinos have a long history at the reserve, with their conservation led by RhinoProtect. This organisation developed a horn treatment to ward off poachers, and established an orphanage for calves victimised by poaching. Free-roaming elephants are also back, having been eradicated from the area for 150 years.

The buffalo herd is healthy and continually expanding. You are bound to see these volatile creatures on safari. The Cape leopard has long been an inhabitant of the vast mountain ranges, but its solitary and nocturnal habits make it an elusive creature. The search for the Big 5 is the highlight of many safaris, and Inverdoorn delivers a once-in-a-lifetime experience searching for these famous creatures.
