We were there early morning . They met us with a big smile, a non-alkholic drink, a big breakfast. A very amazing round through the safari, ended with lunch and rest.

A friendly greeting on arrival with refreshments. Despite a burst water main which caused significant difficulties for the hotel, everything was done to make us as comfortable as possible. When we still had no water in our room at bedtime, we were immediately offered alternative rooms and upgraded the following day for our inconvenience. The Manager and his staff went... More

The food was average, buffet all the way. the hot water bottles in our beds were nice, as it was a bit of a cold day and evening, so this was a welcome surprise. the safari was lovely, all animals we hoped to see where there. And only a 2... More

Very beautiful scenery, peaceful, great accommodation. The breakfast, lunch and supper buffet was awesome. For a very relaxing holiday away from all things electronic, this is the place to be, but of course the highlight are the game drives!!! An opportunity to see the big 5 so close to Cape Town.

The game reserve is quite big, but you are aware at all times that it is an enclosed area. This is fine as long as you don't expect a "kruger-park" experience. An overnight stay and two gamedrives is enough to see all animals, which is simply awesome, the driver gets really close, perfect to make pictures. The food at the... More

My family and I stayed at Aquila in April and we had a great time. The accommodation was perfect for a family of four. We were in a cavernous room with a mezzanine above the bathroom which was perfect for our two young kids. The two game drives that we went on were in a large open-sided 4x4 bus with... More
