From start to finished we felt catered for. The reserve and accommodation is just magical. I would highly recommend Aquila. See you again soon!

We were on holiday in South Africa and staying in Cape Town for a week. Because we wanted the safari experience but were unable to visit the more well known Kruger Park, we booked ourselves on the day trip safari to Aquila Private Game Reserve. It was an early morning pick up from our hotel, but watching the sun come... More

We've been fortunate to visit Aquila a number of times. As a freelance journalist, I have always revelled in the fact that I get to visit these amazingly beautiful places and write about it afterwards. My other love is photography and photographing the elephants. lions, hippos, giraffe and all the other animals on the reserve bring me so much joy.... More

I've always been an animal warrior so I'm a strong supporter of National Parks and Reserves, I'm just 16 but I'm a really determined and proud person. I've been studying zebras for 10 years so I’ve learned a lot of things during this period and as you can deduce the zebra is one of my favourite animal species. My favourite... More

I have never been, but I have seen the pictures and I am always having a look at the guests reviews . This is enough for me to decide that I have to go visit Aquila Private Game Reserve. To be amongst the wild life and to experience nature.

It's been a year since our visit and I still remember how great it was. We took a tour bus from our hotel in Cape Town to the reserve for a day trip. The ride out was worth it. The scenery on the way is breathtaking. Have your camera ready. The bus stopped for a break at a service station... More

My parents and I went to Aquila for a break and had a terrible, terrible experience. The worst part of it all was that I emailed Aquila describing what went wrong. I emailed Aquila to ensure that I used the correct email, but no reply from them. I would of thought that they would just take the time in letting... More
