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.

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...

If you have ever taken part in a game drive safari, you may have heard you guide answering a question from a guest by "no that never happens".Well, never say never when it comes to the wild life! You'll be surprised how wrong you could be!   Wildlife is more than as described in manuals. There is no rule, nothing is graved in rocks.By working close with the cheetahs, it is amazing to see how these animals will amaze you every...

Cheetah Report 13th of May

My name is Maël Leroux, I am a French student in biology and for my gap year, I decided to come in South Africa and do some volunteering. I will finish my year with three months at Inverdoorn, and after only one week, I already know they are going to be the best ones…   What can I say but it is just magic? The first time you meet the cheetahs is a moment you can’t forget, so emotional. I started with the cheetah run on...
