A New Cheetah Girl

A New Cheetah Girl

Hi, I'm Hannah. I come from Germany and am working at Inverdoorn as a volunteer for four months. I've been here for three weeks, and it's my first cheetah report. This week one of the female cheetahs, Nushka, went into heat, so we brought a male cheetah, Joti, into her camp. But he didn't look very interested in her. We put a bush-cam in the camp to see if anything happens between them. While we were checking the camera we saw that...

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...

A Farewell to Animals

This weekend wrapped up my last few days at Inverdoorn. I have been here just over three months and what an experience it has been. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect when I first arrived, but it didn't take long to figure out that even though every day's routine was similar, it was also always different. The work wasn't always fun or easy, but the fun times made it all the more worthwhile. I have experienced things I never...

The Return of the Cheetah Girl

Hello, I'm back! As Leah mentioned last week, I volunteered here at Inverdoorn last year and was lucky enough to be offered a job. After a long while back home in the UK battling visa paperwork, I arrived just over a week ago and I couldn't be happier. We've got a great team of staff and volunteers and I feel privileged to work amongst them. My first days back involved me getting back into the swing of things, along with starting my...

Feathered Friends

Feathered Friends

This week started with some rain again. On Tuesday Wilna, our General Manager, called me over the radio. She had found four baby mousebirds that must have fallen out of the nest, because of the wind. One was already dead and the other three barely alive. They were stiff, cold, wet and full of ants. With the help of my blow-dryer all three of them came back to life within minutes. I was still very worried though since I didn't know...
