    Hello, I'm Julie. I'm 26 years old and I'm French. I have had a passion for animals since I was a child, and I wanted to try a true experience in the wild. I discovered Inverdoorn on TV and wanted to try volunteering for four months in this beautiful reserve. I arrived three weeks ago and it's amazing. The people are very nice and the...

    Notes from the Bush

    Tuesday, 15 July 2014

    It is the early morning. As usual we departed at about 06:30 in the freezing cold and black darkness, only the moon giving some light. For the first hour, driving around trying to find animal tracks, we did not find a lot. Only a springbok, here and there. After an hour the sun came out. Light started to rise from the earth – a...

    Last week we said goodbye to our lovely volunteer Jenny, which was very sad for us. But this week, we got to welcome a new volunteer, Julie, who is also from France. I'm sure her first few days with us have been very busy and confusing trying to learn everything, but she seems to be enjoying herself, which is good! She will write a...

    This week was my last one at Inverdoorn. I spent five months here as a cheetah girl. I met some wonderful people who are really devoted to conservation, friendly and hard-working. I learnt a lot about animals, especially cheetahs, but also the rhinos. I have a better understanding now about their behaviour, their habits and...

    Cheetah Cub Update

    Monday, 23 June 2014

    This week something very sad happened at Inverdoorn. We lost one of our cheetah cubs. When we went to check on the cubs on Monday we realised that one was missing and after closer observation saw that another cub was injured and had a big cut on its back. The cub urgently needed help and we decided that it would be for the best to take...

    As you already know, a little miracle happened at Inverdoorn on the 31st of May: four beautiful cheetah cubs were born. But let's first go back in time. I started working at Inverdoorn in January last year and six months later I decided to make it my mission to see cheetah cubs born at the reserve. I say mission, because...

    Hello, my name is Sophie Jacquet and I come from France. I am doing an internship at Inverdoorn as a digital marketing assistant for six months. In other words, I am helping with Inverdoorn's websites and social networks. Obviously, it is better to know about safaris before you talk about them and it is for this reason I went to the...

For more than a decade the Western Cape Cheetah Conservation, based at the reserve, has been rescuing and rehabilitating cheetahs. Captive breeding amongst these big cats is notoriously...

    This week we were all reminded that winter season does not only bring less guests to the reserve, but also some very, very cold weather. Waking up to snow-white mountains all around makes us appreciate how lucky we are to enjoy their beauty. As if this view was not special enough, during one of our tracking sessions I found the female...
