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

We wanted to do a quick day trip from Cape Town to see the big 5. Luckily we went with these guys because it was absolutely perfect. We drove ourselves, the garden route is nothing compared to the beautiful scenery here! Champagne and buffet breakfast already had us hooked on the place. We didn't have any wet weather gear and...

The room was big and nice with a great bed and bathroom, includes an outdoor shower which will be good in summer. Room had a nice fire place and heating system, the staff puts hot water bottles at night before you arrive from the safari which is a nice touch. Our room was facing the river entrance of the safari... More

We cut our two night stay to one...and if we had not driven for 3 plus hours + we probably would not have stayed the night! The reason we chose Aquila was we did not have the time to go to Kruger or Chobe and thought it was an opportunity for our grand children to see the big five in... More

Firstly we booked through Groupon, just about half price. the hotel was amazing bungalows, very beautiful with thatched roofs and open outdoor showers and log fire. Safari tours are extra but well worth the money, This is a place to see before you die.

We were booked in over the weekend (05 & 06 July 2014). I was expecting a less than perfect experience due to it being out of season. Although the price was expensive being a "local" - what we received was totally worth every cent I spent. We were greeted by a staff member on arrival, with welcome drinks and a... More

I had been in Cape Town for a week for work and being able to experience all of the animals Africa is so famous for so close to Cape Town was fantastic. I definitely wouldn't have had time to go to one of the bigger or more well known parks so Aquila was the perfect answer! I absolutely loved the... More

I loved it! Food was amazing and friendly service. It's a wonderful place in the middle of nowhere. It has all the facilities, however the bedroom has the shower outdoors and at least in May it was not that warm. We stayed one night and we enjoyed of the safari, Great experience for someone that is not looking for something... More
