Learning the Ropes

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 cheetahs are adorable. This week I was finally able to meet the cubs. It was amazing and they...

Notes from the Bush

Light started to rise from the earth – a beautiful sunrise view through the acacia Karoo trees. I continued with my guests on the safari and came...

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 welcome report in a couple of weeks when she has settled in nicely. The past few days have been very...

A Fond Farewell

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 interactions. Working in this place was just amazing and unforgettable. It was not always easy to work here,...
