This is a rustic game lodge in a stunning, remote location. The food was excellent, however the service is generally poor. The room cleaners didn't even replace the empty toilet paper! I had to go to the lobby and ask for toilet paper and more of the little bottles of shampoo! How can you miss that!? i also found the...

Had an overnight and two game drives at Inverdorn in early November. Although it was a very cold weekend (wind) it was enjoyable. Although we saw the Big 5, it was rather restricted as far as wildlife goes, don't expect herds of animals there are a few of them of all species. Accom was a small chalet with not a...

Unpleasant experience. We came there by recommendations not knowing that we should reserve in advance. The roads where not even worth the name. At the end the warm welcome was: "So, you guys made it up here for nothing!" Thanks a lot!!! Even if the lady looked nice there is no reason to be that rude! And there is always...

Thank you for the feedback. We are sorry you couldn’t experience our stunning big 5 safaris. Due to our high reputation we are fully booked and require any new guest to make reservation prior driving 2.5 hours and be left down like you experienced.

This could be a 5 star resort, but there are just so many disappointments. The game drives are great, the guides are excellemt, the pool area is stunning. The service is aweful and rude, this was the most expensive place we have stayed in south africa but by far the worse service. The management is even worse as they seem...

We stayed at Inverdoorn on 19th October as a family, with 2 children aged 8 & 11. I had fairly high expectations, as it has very good reviews on trip advisor and that it's at the more expensive end of safaris that are near Cape Town. The accommodation and setting is beautiful. The safari itself was fantastic and our Ranger,...

There is absolutely nothing to complain about at Inverdoorn. Having read the negative reviews, I did wonder whether these people had even visited. Everything was well organised, the food was more than acceptable, the staff friendly and approachable, the accommodation clean and well looked after and the game drives fascinating. As well as all this, the on site facilities ie....

After reading a few reviews I wasn't sure what to expect at Inverdoorn. We stayed in a luxury chalet that was absolutely stunning. We had a private pool that overlooked a sectioned area that held two baby rhinos. It was magical! We had a lovely lunch - the bobotie was great- then we lounged by the pool before heading out...

We had a wonderful stay at Inverdoorn Game Reserve. Firstly our reservation went very smoothly with Carmia giving all necessary information and answering all our questions, so we were well prepared for our trip! At the reserve we were welcomed at our car and offered a refreshing drink. We had a lovely lunch by the beautiful pool and our dinner...

The Inverdoorn Game Lodge is the perfect place to stay if you are exploring the Tanqua Karoo. My husband and I used it as our base to do some birding in this area and were very impressed by the chef at the lodge. One night we had a yin-and-yang-like starter that was a duo of cream of carrot and potato...

If you are looking for a place to get out of Cape Town for a night or two, with a pool, this place is an ok choice, but be warned the food selections are average and miss the mark. The lodge and reserve is really a conservation, rescue and rehab centre, and not a place for a true safari experience....
