From The Cape To The Karoo: Big 5 Safari Tours Around Cape Town

Cape Town’s Unique Landscape

Cape Town is the gem in the crown of South African tourism of that there is very little doubt. Vast numbers of people come down to this idylic seaside city and vow never to return to their homelands. There is something special about this place that is for sure and nowhere is that more clear than the wildlife that surrounds it. Cape Town has many unique features with regards to its plants and animals. Table Mountain is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and to see it clothed in the ‘tablecloth’ is something that everyone deserves to see at least once. The fynbos that grows on its slopes is found nowhere else in the word and when in bloom provides a truly spectacular spectrum of colours.

A Big 5 Safari Around The Corner

There are few other places in the world with such diversity as Cape Town. There are any number of scenes that you can experience in a very short distance. Cape Town’s beaches are some of the very best in the world and probably the coldest as well but you won’t be worried about that in the summer when the temperatures regularly reach around the mid thirties in Celsius. In the city you will find world class shopping and other luxuries you would expect from a city but the real treasures are to be found when you venture away from the hotels and the restaurants. About 3 hours drive away from the middle of town lies Inverdoorn, a place of infinite serenity and breathtaking scenery. Here you will find a big five safari like no other. Inverdoorn is a place where animals are allowed to roam the plains freely and you can join them twice a day.

Inverdoorn’s Rugged Luxury

They are also very dedicated to conservation and the reserve itself acts as a rehabilitation centre for many animals who have been abandoned or mistreated. The lodge itself is situated in the famous inland region called the Karoo, an ancient inland area that is home to some of the oldest fossils known to mankind. The area was previously home to many of the animals that have come full circle to once again walk its semi arid plains. But Inverdoorn is much more than that, it is place where you can relax knowing that there is always helpful staff on hand to make your stay more enjoyable. The guides are informative and knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions when you are whisked away for your big five safari. You can book here.
