Cheetah Report 28th of June

Im lucky today! I, Baptiste the marketing assistant at Inverdoorn, got the opportunity to write the Cheetah report. Usually I work at the Office in Sea Point, Cape Town but I have been given the chance to spent some time at the reserve with the Capecheetah team.   I had to take new pictures and videos for our website. It's always a pleasure to go to the reserve. But this week the trip to the reserve was special and I think...

A non-final farewell

Cheetah Report 14th of June

I kept kidding myself that this day would never come but, unfortunately, here it is. This will be my final cheetah report on behalf of the Cheetah team at Inverdoorn. Sadly, I have come to the end of my time working here, and whilst I am excited to continue on the next chapter of my life, I know that a part of my heart will always ache and long to be back. As every person that has ever been a part of the Inverdoorn team will tell...

Cheetah Report 11th of June

I was very excited to be invited back to Inverdoorn for the second time as a cheetah handler after being here for three months last year as a volunteer. Some major things have changed since the last time I was here and it's very nice to be back. My first sunset back on the reserve was bright red, yellow, and pink, just like I remembered them. The Rhinos at the lodge Lufinia and Bundu have gotten so much bigger; I was shocked when I...

Cheetah Report 1st of June

Winter is here. I can feel it. Every morning is colder and colder. Its already dark by 18:00 in die evenings and dark when you stand up for work. It's getting very difficult to stand up in the mornings.   A few months have passed and luckily I'm still alive. To be a student and also work hard is very difficult. You have to make time for assignments after working dinner the night or doing evening and morning safari. Time...

(late) Cheetah Report 24 April

This week's cheetah report matches perfectly the end of my first week as a volunteer at Inverdoorn. My name is Alexandra, I'm 25 and when I left Switzerland I didn't know exactly what to expect, I knew I would be "working with cheetahs" but that just soundstooincredible right!? When I met Velvet and Iziba, the 2 adult cheetahs of the lodge, and Lula, Benji, Clyde, the 3 cubs, I realised how impressive they are, but also sweet and...
