Lotta and her Litter

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 conservationists really struggle to breed cheetahs in captivity, because they are very special when it comes to...

Safari Newbie

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 game reserve. I had never been on a safari and it was my first time. I was so excited to go there and...

Breeding Success at Western Cape Cheetah Conservation

Cheetah Cubs Born at Inverdoorn Game Reserve

Following the release of free-roaming cheetahs at Inverdoorn Game Reserve is the recent birth of four cubs at the cheetah centre's breeding camp. 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 difficult, but the Cape Cheetah team has preserved despite the ongoing challenge. They conduct daily runs...

A Time to Chill

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 with a blood-red face, panting over a freshly-caught springbok. Unfortunately, I didn't have a...

Free-roaming Cheetahs

Free-roaming Cheetahs

This week was a little bit quiet, because fewer guests came to Inverdoorn but there was plenty of action from our cheetahs. The female cheetah in the reserve is especially healthy and she has totally recovered from her injuries. We found her twice with a springbok! The first kill was on Wednesday and I was with Leah. When we found her, she had just killed the antelope. She was eating so we went farther in order to let her enjoy the...
