Excellent trip, Saw all the animals we wanted lead by very informative and friendly driver. Early check out of room meant that pool couldn't be used as couldn't get changed after.

First, I will start off by saying this is not a real safari. They know where all of the animals are and it's not "exhilirating" at all. Having said that, the crew and lodging accomdations are great. Outdoor shower, large bathtubs, great food. This place is worth it even without the animals.

Aquila is a beautiful gamepark. The drives were nice. We saw a lot of animals. The meals were good. The only problem for us was the house. We were with 2 friends and had a house for 8 persons. Our friends took the best room [we said them that they should do so]. The other room was dark, very small.... More

We were able to view all the big 5 as well as other game. While it may not be the natural habitation of some of the animals it is lovely to experience this viewing so close to Cape Town. The staff and guides were very well informed and friendly.

My wife and I could not speak highly enough about Aquila. The room was beautiful, comfortable, clean and perfect for relaxing. The food was so good I believe I may have had too much, and the staff were welcoming and friendly. Daniel, our ranger was informative, funny and clearly loves his job, which made our tours all the more fascinating... More

Excellent location. Beautiful setting. Knowledgeable tour guides. Food was great with an excellent spread on offer. Accommodation was clean and welcoming. Definitely an overnight stay. Day trip will be too short to see and experience everything. A must see and definitely a place to visit again
