Loved our room- beautifully designed and comfortable with outdoor shower. Nice size with a small fireplace. The food at restaurant was plentiful and delicious! Grounds are very nice. Staff is great adn helpful. The game drives are good and we had a good time. Definitely recommend this place for families- they have a wonderful playground that they are still expanding.

Aquila is a well priced game reserve, not far from Cape Town. I absolutely love not having to drive far to get out of the city and escape to nature, to the beautiful, majestic wildlife that the reserve holds. The accommodation in itself is magnificent and your really spoiled when you visit. The amount of activities to do whilst there... More

The place is welcoming and nicely spread out with cute accommodation with lodge architecture. The buffet food was good and is what you would expect in a game reserve. Our guide was knowledgeable and passionate about his job which made the information he shared even more interesting. During our first outing we had an apero stop to chill out and... More

My partner and I visited Aquila at the end of September last year to celebrate our 2 years together. On arrival, we were greeted with friendly smiles, and enjoyed our welcome drinks while taking in the scenery. We walked around the reception area, and gazed at the beautiful pool area. We then enjoyed a scrumptious buffet lunch, and also went... More

Aquila is absolutely amazing! Great Game Viewing and excellent service! I was only lucky enough to enjoy one game drive at the reserve, so woudl absoutely love to visit again and get the full safari experience, but from the little time I spent there I loved it and cant wait to go back! Just a short drive from Cape Town... More

As I go through the pictures of Aquila, I am in disbelief that such beauty even exists. The animals, the food, stunning rooms and most definitively cost effective. How do one, begin to describe a place like this. My guesses are, you have to be there in order to be a witness to this place. Aquilla is also ideal for... More

The resort offered them value for money I believe and to return 4 times ckearky means that Aquila is doing something right for... More

We enjoyed a wonderful weekend at Aquila Private Game Reserve, only 2 hours scenic drive from Cape Town. The staff welcomed us with very friendly faces and sparkling wine. The room was very clean and the outdoor shower was magic. Our room was facing the river that runs through the Reserve. We went on an afternoon safari where the Rhinos... More
