A Cheetah is a Girl's Best Friend

Immanuel Kant said that "we can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals". In this case it is the heart of a woman. Leah Brousse is a French-born, German girl living in South Africa. She has been working at Inverdoorn for just over a month and her passion for what she does is evident in every word and every smile.

Big 5 Focus: Lion

WRITTEN BY // Claudia Hauter CATEGORIES // Inverdoorn-blog

"The one excellent thing that can be learned from a lion is that whatever a man intends doing should be done by him with a whole-hearted and strenuous effort." - Chanakya

Big 5 Focus: Lion

Moving on from the majestic elephant, we focus on the lion – the king of the jungle. This title came about due to their superiority among predators, but they can be intimidated by buffaloes and elephants, who also happen to be larger than them. Not that size necessarily matters, as hyenas are bitter enemies and have been known to corner a lion. It is a further misleading title as African lions do not inhabit jungles. Africa...

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....

RHINOPROTECT RESCUES TWO BABY RHINOS

Bundu and Livinia Arrive at Inverdoorn

The year may be ending on a sour note in terms of rhino-poaching statistics, currently standing at 633 killed in South Africa this year. Inverdoorn, however, brings light into the dire darkness of this reality and moves forward with positivity into 2013 with the arrival of two baby rhinos, rescued by RhinoProtect. Inverdoorn was very happy and excited to welcome them, but their reason for coming is unfortunately a tragic one: the...
