Team

At Inverdoorn Game Reserve and Iziba Safari Lodge we have two main teams working tirelessly to conserve wildlife and bring you the best luxury safari experience close to Cape Town. On the reserve you will find the lodge team attending to your every need and the wildlife team, who work with the animals, take you on Big 5 safaris and share stories about the wildlife roaming free on the reserve. The Cape Town team is there to assist you in sorting out the finer details of your booking and accommodation, while the marketing team aims to keep everyone up to date and informed about everything that makes Inverdoorn what it is.

Meet the team and read more about the different individuals working at Inverdoorn.
