A Glimpse into Both Worlds

A Glimpse into Both Worlds

After an internship of almost five months at Inverdoorn I decided to spend my last days as a cheetah girl to have the opportunity to compare these two different departments in the same company. Working at the lodge can be difficult psychologically, because we have to meet all the demands of the guests and make sure they are always happy. We try our best to resolve any problems and make their stay a happy one so that they leave with...

Tales of Mousebirds

WRITTEN BY // Leah Brousse CATEGORIES // Inverdoorn-blog

“A bird is three things: Feathers, flight and song, And feathers are the least of these.” – Marjorie Allen Seiffert

Tales of Mousebirds

Coming from Seattle in the United States, this is his second time working with cheetahs in South Africa. “Everything about them is awesome,” he says when naming the cheetah as his favourite animal, “and I’ve worked with them quite a bit now and every time I’m with them I learn...

Meeting the Volunteers: Annami Grabe

WRITTEN BY // Claudia Hauter CATEGORIES // Team | Capecheetah-blog | Inverdoorn-blog

"I am a forward-looking person and live in the moment to build for the future." - Hugh Masekela

Meeting the Volunteers: Annami Grabe

Something I loved about meeting the volunteers and talking to them was the way they carefully contemplated each question I put forward to them – and none more so than Annami, a local volunteer, hailing from Somerset West. She has found a perfect haven in Inverdoorn’s open spaces as she explains that she’s an outdoor person. “I like the bushveld and openness. I don’t like the city, so this is perfect for me.” “When I...
