The Western Cape Cheetah Conservation, the reserve’s rescue and rehabilitation centre for cheetahs, runs a volunteer programme which brings many fresh, young faces to Inverdoorn throughout the year. You are also likely to meet students from across the globe who are completing an internship at the reserve and eager to share their knowledge and experience with guests.
