Inverdoorn is an extraordinary and thriving wildlife sanctuary. At the forefront of various wildlife species reintroduction and conservation initiatives.

The Klein Karoo was once teemed with cheetahs, lions and various antelopes, but were virtually wiped out to make way for agricultural development.

Inverdoorn played an extremely important ecological role in the Western Cape, when reintroducing wildlife into the region and making it accessible to visitors across the world.


One of Inverdoorn’s key features is the cheetah rehabilitation program. Since its inception in 2001, the Western Cape Cheetah Conservation has saved 16 cheetahs.
