My husband and I went to Aquila Private Game Reserve for a treat for my 40th birthday. We enjoyed it so much! It was a wonderful experience to see the big 5 in their natural habitat. The food was delicious and everyone was so friendly! With our next visit we are bringing our children along.

First time visitors to SA from the UK we wanted to go on safari and since we were holidaying in Cape Town it made sense to visit Aquilla. We had two nights here and done three safaris. One word describes this place and that's "fabulous". Fabulous for the animals, the Rangers, the food, the accommodation, the staff and the most... More

We had a great one night stay at Aquila . Of special mention the person who assisted us in making this booking , Katooma , who went out of her way to accommodate us . Suggestions : As there were many foreign visistors who perhaps are not familiar with the delicious traditional meals which were served , I would suggest... More

My family and I were extremely pleased with the Aquila safari place. The facilities were very clean, the food quality and quantity was perfect. The management and the service provided by the staff was excellent. I would 100% recommend this place and by far exceeded our expectations.

Aquila Game Reserve would be the perfect getaway before the crazy festive season begins. The reserve serves as a backdrop to what Africa really is, how the rest of the world sees us. I've only ever dreamt about going on a Game Drive to see the big five, even though it is right on our door steps. I would love... More

It is no secret that I am a huge animal fan. I reside in an apartment and therefore can't even have a dog. I work online and am stuck behind a PC on the internet day in and day out. Nothing is better in this entire world than being around wildlife. I would LOVE nothing more than to experience the... More

Great accommodations and food. The rangers were knowledgeable and got close to the animals. Amazing scenery and location. Would definitely go back. Also, saw Aaron Paul from Breaking Bad there!

I have read only good things about this reserve and would love to experience it myself. Being close to nature, viewing the Big 5 on horseback and staying in their luxury accommodation, all only 2 hours from home sounds like an amazing weekend getaway.
