Commercial zoo with bad food! Aquila is so overpriced! When you want to go to an really expensive zoo, go here. If you like good food and want a clean room or a safari, don't go here. The safari is like going in a zoo, it had nothing to do with wild life. There are two elephants, four or five... More

As one of the things on my bucket list i had already decided and imagined what it would be like visiting the Aquila Game Reserve. Safe to say it exceeded my imagination. The staff at the reserve were friendly and efficient making us feel welcome throughout our stay. The food was delicious and there was a variety to choose from.... More

The charges to the place I feel is over-price even they provide breakfast and lunch. The park has limited wild animals for viewing. However, if you are short of time and wanted somewhere close by Cape Town, this might be the place for you to experience a 'safari' feel. Of all the things offered, I really like the moment where...

This was a lovely drive from Cape Town. It was easy to find and each chalet has their own parking space which I thought was a nice touch. The grounds are lovely with a nice swimming pool. The buffet had plentiful food and the wine is still cheap. Our little lodge was gorgeous with a log fire and rock shower... More

The Aquila "4* Private Game Reserve" markets itself as a big-5 experience with once-in-a-lifetime game drives. Having visited a dozen 4* and 5* private game reserves in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Tanzania, I knew exactly what to expect, especially with the price tag attached to this one-night experience! However, this is not a game reverse and it is definitely... More

Aquila is well suited to a day visitor but can not be classified as a breakaway destination for more than a day. The facilities provides no more than the game drives. The little ones have some entertainment but for the rest, there is nothing to do. The Restuarant serves buffet and once you hit the second meal you understand that... More

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

Aquila Private Game Reserve - Best Dream Vacation!!! Unparalelled views, gorgeous scenery, magestic creatures all around, pure tranquility...like being transported into a dream world where one can become one with nature (and yes, maybe a luxurious one at that) Friendly staff and stunning accommodation offer a terrific all round experience. I applaud Aquila for their outstanding Eco Synergy System such... More
