Wild and Wonderful Spring Safari

Embark on a Wild and Wonderful Big 5 Spring Safari in the Western Cape

In South Africa, the first day of September officially marks the start of spring. Every year, the Karoo comes alive with bright colours and new life, and although the spring weather has been slightly delayed, the reserve is once again blossoming with vibrant colours and captivating Big 5 sightings. Located just 2.5 hours outside of Cape Town, Join us on a wild and wonderful Spring Safari amidst the Western Cape’s stunning wild flowers.

The Colourful Call of the Wild

As winter’s grasp finally loosens, the Karoo region, known for its arid beauty, undergoes a miraculous transformation. Springtime at Inverdoorn becomes a spectacle of colours, where the once semi-desert landscapes burst to life with lush greenery and a riot of unique Southern African wildflowers. 

While the wildflowers steal the show, the Western Cape is also home to some of the most iconic and majestic wildlife on the planet. Inverdoorn Private Game Reserve offers an opportunity to encounter Africa’s Big 5 – lions, elephants, leopards, buffalos, and rhinoceros – all in one magical location. Imagine the thrill of watching a lioness observing a herd of buffalo at a watering hole, enjoying the fresh water and Spring rains. Or witness a herd of African elephants slowly strolling through the reserve, feasting on new leaves and growing buds.

As the temperatures rise and the days grow longer, rare wildlife sightings like these are not only awe-inspiring but also a testament to the incredible conservation efforts in the region. Famous for reintroducing the endangered white rhinoceros back to the Western Cape after more than two hundred years, Inverdoorn Game Reserve is also home to the world-famous Cheetah Run and Cheetah Breeding Programme, created to help rehabilitate captive-bred cheetahs to be released back into the wild.

Big 5 Spring Safari Adventure

But the beauty of the Western Cape doesn’t end with its Fynbos flowers and Spring landscapes.  Inverdoorn Private Game Reserve is home to Africa’s most iconic wildlife. Here, you can experience the heart-pounding excitement of a Big 5 Safari game drive in a traditional, open-back safari vehicle. 

Witness lions, hippos, elephants, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, ostriches, rhinos – and more, in their natural habitat. Sighting these incredible animals in the wild is a special and cherished experience. Whether you’re a seasoned safari-goer or a first-time traveller, the wonder of seeing these animals up-close and in-person will stay with you forever.
