The Cape Town Safari Tour is a fantastic way to see African wildlife in its natural setting without trekking to far-off corners of the continent. It is ideal for families with kids.
Before arriving at the Inverdoorn Game Reserve, go through the inland to discover other aspects of the Western Cape. Vineyards stretch as far as the eye can see, followed by the semi desert of the Klein Karoo and the Region of Ceres, covered with fruit trees and green vegetation. The whole area is surrounded by impressive mountains. During this two and a half-hour drive, you will be glad to be able to just look out the window at the beautiful scenery displaying all the diversity of South Africa.
After a short stretch of dirt road in the authentic savannah, accept the welcome of the Inverdoorn Game Reserve staff. It is the biggest animal reserve in the region, offering a Big 5 Safari. Enjoy a good, generous meal and relax in the pool or at the fireplace before exploring the bush.
On foot or by car, during the morning or at sunset, each Safari is different; there is always something to see! With an informative and entertaining guide, be on the lookout for lions, ostriches, elephants and zebras… but the stars here are the cheetahs. Indeed, the park hosts a cheetah sanctuary where it is possible to have interactions with these animals (for those over 16 years old). Petting them quietly is touching and something you don’t get the opportunity to do everyday!
For the night, the Guesthouse offers all the comfort you need. Appreciate a relaxing night, falling asleep with the mythical sounds of animals in the savannah.

Wine Region & Klein Karoo
A bit further, the semi desert area of the Klein Karoo contrasts with the Winelands. Imagine years ago elephants, buffalo and kudu roaming this area, bordered by the Swartberg and the Lageberg mountains. Today gone, ostriches take their place instead, mainly in farms, but it is always impressive to find these animals by the roadside as you usually see cattle or sheep.

If you are lucky enough, you will also be able to get closer to the impressive giraffes in awesome walk, almost having your head in the clouds. You will make incredible memories, for sure!
