Notes from the Bush

It is the early morning. As usual we departed at about 06:30 in the freezing cold and black darkness, only the moon giving some light. For the first hour, driving around trying to find animal tracks, we did not find a lot. Only a springbok, here and there. After an hour the sun came out. Light started to rise from the earth – a beautiful sunrise view through the acacia Karoo trees. I continued with my guests on the safari and came...

Animal Activity

Last week we said goodbye to our lovely volunteer Jenny, which was very sad for us. But this week, we got to welcome a new volunteer, Julie, who is also from France. I'm sure her first few days with us have been very busy and confusing trying to learn everything, but she seems to be enjoying herself, which is good! She will write a welcome report in a couple of weeks when she has settled in nicely. The past few days have been very...

A Fond Farewell

This week was my last one at Inverdoorn. I spent five months here as a cheetah girl. I met some wonderful people who are really devoted to conservation, friendly and hard-working. I learnt a lot about animals, especially cheetahs, but also the rhinos. I have a better understanding now about their behaviour, their habits and interactions. Working in this place was just amazing and unforgettable. It was not always easy to work here,...

Cheetah Cub Update

This week something very sad happened at Inverdoorn. We lost one of our cheetah cubs. When we went to check on the cubs on Monday we realised that one was missing and after closer observation saw that another cub was injured and had a big cut on its back. The cub urgently needed help and we decided that it would be for the best to take the other two with us, since we didn't know what had happened. Later on we went back to look for...

Lotta and her Litter

As you already know, a little miracle happened at Inverdoorn on the 31st of May: four beautiful cheetah cubs were born. But let's first go back in time. I started working at Inverdoorn in January last year and six months later I decided to make it my mission to see cheetah cubs born at the reserve. I say mission, because conservationists really struggle to breed cheetahs in captivity, because they are very special when it comes to...
