Saving the fastest animal on land

The first time you see a cheetah in close proximity at Inverdoorn Game Reserve and Iziba Safari Lodge may be when the resident tame cheetahs Velvet or Iziba go on walks with their handlers around the lodge – and it is truly a magical experience. There are 14 cheetahs that have been rescued by Cape Cheetah. Many of them, such as Banzi and Nushka, have heart-warming - and heart-breaking - stories which the handlers will eagerly share with you.

interactionDamian & BanziInteracting with a cheetah* at Inverdoorn is an exhilarating experience. You will be filled with awe as Velvet, accompanied by her friend Iziba, slinks past your chair or brushes against your table, her content purr reverberating through your body. Inverdoorn will facilitate this intimate meeting between you and the cheetahs to delight and thrill you, but also to educate you about the plight of the cheetah.

Just two and half hours outside of Cape Town, this safari lodge and cheetah rehabilitation centre is easy to reach. Nowhere else in the region will you be able to connect with cheetahs in this way and see firsthand what goes into rehabilitating a cheetah.

Visit Cape Cheetah today! Banzi, Nushka, Joti, Shady, Velvet and young Izzie are waiting for you.

Close to Cape Town

Just two and a half hours from bustling metropolis of Cape Town, guests will encounter wildlife in all its natural splendour, including the Big 5. This term initially referred to the five most challenging animals to hunt in Africa, but have now become the most sought after animals on a safari.

Day and Overnight Packages

Inverdoorn offers day visits which entail a three-hour safari and lunch back at the safari lodge. Day visits are ideal for those limited on time and budget or even just for those looking for a quick escape from the city. Overnight guests encompass two safaris: one at sunset and one at sunrise the next day. All meals are included and are served at the boma under the stars for a real South African safari experience.
