Inverdoorn’s Cheetah Run: All You Need To Know

Inverdoorn Private Game Reserve’s Cheetah Run programme is one of the most successful conservation initiatives in South Africa. For over two decades, Inverdoorn has been at the forefront of captive cheetah rehabilitation and breeding initiatives. Under new ownership, the reserve is taking a more conservation-centric approach to its wildlife programmes.

This includes removing profit-driven interactions and focusing on providing the best possible life for these impressive animals while providing a one-of-a-kind experience for guests wanting to learn about cheetahs and witness the incredible speed of the world’s fastest land animal.

All About Inverdoorn’s Cheetah Educational and Cheetah Run Experience

Elevated Observation Area

The Cheetah Run is a unique experience where guests can watch cheetahs running at full speed, up-close and out in the open. Cheetahs are the fastest land animals in the world, and can reach speeds of up to 125 kilometres per hour (75 miles per hour). Guests can watch the cheetahs run from an elevated observation deck that has zero impact on the animals’ natural behaviour, encouraging their natural hunting instincts and innate predator reflexes during this specially designed hunting simulation exercise.

What to expect:

  • Elevated observation area: Observe cheetah runs from a safe distance without disturbing the animals.
  • Educational wildlife tours: Learn about cheetahs from a qualified guide on a game viewing vehicle.
  • No-touching and no-interaction policy: This ensures the ethical treatment and preservation of wildlife.

Educational Wildlife Tours

Inverdoorn’s commitment to the ethical treatment and preservation of wildlife is evident in its strict no-touching and no-interaction policy, ensuring an authentic game viewing experience. Educational wildlife tours also offer guests the opportunity to learn about cheetahs from a safe distance or from the comfort of a game viewing vehicle. Those who choose to visit Inverdoorn can now look forward to a traditional Big 5 safari experience, one that not only provides incredible wildlife encounters but also actively contributes towards the ongoing  conservation of South Africa’s endangered wildlife species.

Why it’s important:

  • Cheetahs are the fastest land animals in the world, but they are also one of the most endangered big cats.
  • Inverdoorn’s Cheetah Educational and Cheetah Run Experience helps to raise awareness about the importance of cheetah conservation and rehabilitation research for captive-bred or endangered wild animals.

Inverdoorn’s Cheetah Conservation Programme

Inverdoorn Private Game Reserve’s change in ownership marks a significant shift in the reserve’s approach to the cheetah conservation programme. By removing profit-driven interactions and adopting a more conservation-centric focus, Inverdoorn is reaffirming its dedication to the preservation of the Western Cape’s iconic cheetah population.
