Get away from the hustle and bustle of Cape Town and enjoy a safari day trip full of engaging animal encounters on game drives and excellent meals enjoyed in the cool shade. Alternatively, you can enjoy an overnight stay, which will include sunset and sunrise safaris, while a night of well-deserved rest awaits in various luxury accommodation options.
Day trip travellers to Inverdoorn Game Reserve and Iziba Safari Lodge enjoy a jam-packed afternoon safari. You can drive yourself, but Inverdoorn also offers a shuttle service from Cape Town to the lodge. If you drive alone it is recommended that you arrive at 10:00AM as the safari departs from the lodge at 10.30AM. Day trippers enjoy a three-hour long safari tracking herds of zebra and buck through the scrub and spotting elephant, hippo, lion or cheetah running free on the Karoo plains, while dedicated rangers happily share insights and anecdotes about the game reserve and its inhabitants.
The day ends with a hearty lunch followed by delicious desserts, all enjoyed in the shade of a giant Eucalyptus tree. At about 3:00PM you will be back on the road to Cape Town.
If you stay overnight you will enjoy sunset and sunrise safaris. The animals behave differently according to the time of day and are livelier in the mornings and at dusk. To see buffalo or rhino illuminated by the rising sun or a cheetah being put through its paces at their daily sunset training sessions is what travellers' dreams are made of.
The lodge offers various luxury accommodation packages for travellers to choose from and, depending on availability, you could enjoy getting up close and personal with a cheetah.
The Karoo sun can be harsh and a high SPF-factor sunscreen and sunhat for safaris during the day are recommended. Binoculars and something warm to wear are also necessities. A curio shop at the lodge stocks a limited amount of safari essentials, should you forget anything.
