The premier luxury big five safari destination within the karoo.
While the Klein Karoo is a panorama of solitude and tranquillity, it is nevertheless teeming with life of every kind. Inverdoorn Game Reserve and Iziba Safari Lodge has made a significant contribution to sustaining the biodiversity of the Karoo. Boasting a plethora of free-roaming wildlife, including the Big 5, the sprawling 10 000 hectares of the reserve is also home to a successful cheetah rescue and rehabilitation centre.
In 2012 Inverdoorn became a luxury Big 5 safari destination, after the introduction of elephants onto the reserve, accompanying the lion, rhino, African buffalo and the elusive leopard. Cape Cheetah, the rescue and rehabilitation centre for this incredible big cat, was founded in 2001 and is home to 14 cheetahs. Together with a profusion of wildlife which includes zebras, hippos, giraffes, wildebeest and springbok, guests are sure to have an unforgettable safari experience.
For overnight guests Inverdoorn offers a variety of luxury accommodation options. These range from the charming Guest Houses for families and big groups to the Chalets, Luxury Chalets and the exclusive Ambassador Suite. Nestled between the immaculate Succulent Garden and the great expanse of the Karoo, Iziba Safari Lodge provides comfort and respite. Situated just two and a half hours from Cape Town, the drive to Inverdoorn will take you over stunning mountain passes and through famed vineyards of the Western Cape.
