Inverdoorn is a malaria-free game reserve near Cape Town, South Africa. It is very uniquely located at the gates of the Karoo, a semi-desert region. This vast and scenic area boasts amazing sunsets and contrasts between lakes, sand, bush and the blue and clear sky.
From Cape Town, it is a leisurely 2.5 hour drive through wonderful landscapes with beautiful wine estates. The mountains near Ceres are snow-capped in the winter and provide the dry and arid area of the Karoo with water after melting. Sheep and Springbok greet you as you enter the white gate into Inverdoorn Game Reserve.
