Meet the Cheetahs: At the Breeding Facility

Currently we have five cheetahs in the breeding facility. There are nine closed-off areas in which the cheetahs are rotated. If and when a female goes into heat she will be moved in with a male and all fingers are crossed for successful mating. This area will not be their home forever; these cheetahs will also have the opportunity to be released. No cheetah will be kept in the breeding facility permanently. Nushka Approaching...

A Bundle of Love

A Bundle of Love

Hello, my name is Jenny. I am 27 years old and a French student. I have studied biology and ecology.

It’s my first time in Africa and I’m really happy to be here at Inverdoorn where I started five weeks ago. In those five weeks a lot of things have...

While reading, keep reminding yourself that the cats I am describing are born wild, and no matter what, we can never extinguish...

Weathering the Storm

Weathering the Storm

This week started with a huge storm. In an hour we had half of our annual rain. As luck would have it, Annami and I were in the reserve tracking the cheetahs when it all started. First there were a few raindrops, which made us very happy since we had been praying for rain after a heat wave, but then it started to get hectic - so hectic that we had to hide in a shed for over an hour while we heard the thunder and lightning passing...

Tales of Mousebirds

WRITTEN BY // Leah Brousse CATEGORIES // Inverdoorn-blog

“A bird is three things: Feathers, flight and song, And feathers are the least of these.” – Marjorie Allen Seiffert

Tales of Mousebirds

I never really had a thing for birds. Don’t get me wrong I love all animals, but I’m just more of a mammal person. I never understood birds and always thought that you can’t really bond with them – until the first mousebird came into my life. Mousebirds got their name because of their legs and their habit of scrubbing through leaves and sand. Mousebirds are slender and about 10cm long. They have a beautiful long and thin...
