STARGAZING AT INVERDOORN

Stars in Your Eyes

The bright moments at Inverdoorn do not end when the sun goes down. Whether reclining at the poolside or on the terraces atop the Luxury Chalets and Ambassador Suite there is a whole other world to observe, spread out above. The lack of city lights and pollution, as well as the extreme dark of the Karoo, make for ideal stargazing conditions. The stars come out to play, twinkling and sparkling, as they illuminate the inky blackness....

RESCUING THE RHINO

Reality Check

As the year winds to a close, we look back on devastating statistics in rhino poaching. In 2010, 333 rhinos were killed in South Africa alone. In 2012 that number has almost doubled – currently standing at 588.

Dispelling ancient...
