Inverdoorn Private Game Reserve is a family-run reserve found in the heart of a typically open Karoo landscape in South Africa. The reserve is home to a captive cheetah breeding program and guests, from the top of a viewing platform, can view these cats in full sprint as they pursue a lure on a pulley. The lions are kept in a separate fenced off portion of the reserve, one of which is a male Cape Barbary Lion which has a magnificent mane and is slightly larger than the average male lion. Typical game species such as giraffe, springbok (including the black morph of this species) and gemsbok (oryx) are common. With a little luck guests can also view small populations of white rhino and buffalo. In addition, exotic species such as red lechwe and European fallow deer have been introduced to the reserve.
