If one does not have sufficient time or money to take a real safari at one of the national parks, this one day tour to Invendoorn game reserve will do. We got to see quite a few animals, although no rhinos as we had been promised. I wish we could have spent more than just 2 hours and 20 minutes on the jeep inside the game reserve, considering the long drive to and from the game reserve.
Two important aspects of the tour were great: animal sightings and the buffet lunch. The only negative was the speed at which the guide drove. It was terrifying and at one point I thought I would be sick. Another passenger was so tossed about that she binoculars flew off. It was as though the driver was rushing from one animal location to another to ensure we saw the big 5. Frankly 'd would be OK with seeing less and driving at a reasonable pace.
Waste of time and money. Safari no chance more rumble in the scrubland.
Completely disappointed with the whole day .
Have to agree with other reviews its an open zoo with rescued animals behind fenced enclosures.
Booked through Viator a TripAdvisor company so thought the day would run smoothly at least. Transport turned up late and the 12 seater minibus absolutely chocker full with passengers and luggage. Very cramped and uncomfortable 5 hr journey and even the driver got lost on the way.
Bundled onto the safari bus no drinks/snacks as promised.
Only got a 2 hr safari as a result of the driver getting us lost on the way as lunch is set at 1pm with no exceptions. Did not see half the animals as promised by the Ranger-no rhino or giraffe?
Disappointed with the reserve very short on animals 2 elephants, 3 lions and 2 cheetahs for example. All animals rescued from other sources not wild.
Lunch was a disappointment, if you don't like salad. Had to pay for soft drinks when we had not been given any on arrival as advertised.
Sat around bored after lunch waiting for the journey back when we could have extended our safari time earlier.
Overall a very disappointing day-not worth the money or time.
Would I recommend-definitely NO.
Excellent trip, our driver Cornelia, was very polite courteous and helpful in explaining the sights enroute to the preserve. The games preserve is extensive and the drivers would bring their vehicles close enough for excellent viewing.
Inverdoorn offered an generally enjoyable experience the animals, facilities and hospitality at the reserve are great. If this is your first trip to Africa and Cape Town is your only destination then this is a good option for an encounter with the famous animals, as well as a great photo opportunity! Be sure to select your seat in the safari vehicle wisely, legroom is at a premium!
When selecting this tour it is important to consider the transfer by the tour operator. From pick-up it took over four hours to get to the park. This in itself is ok, however in my opinion the guide was over-preoccupied with the threat of bad traffic and timings of the day. It became very apparent that the advertised option of enjoying the pool facilities at the resort wasn't an option due to the driver wanting to get back on the road as soon after lunch as possible - despite then stopping at a winery and shop on the way back.
If you have a good amount of time in Cape Town and you really want to see some of the animals then this is probably worth a day of your trip.
