          Excellent service from Miss Silindile (waitress) at wimpy and the food was very delicious I'm willing to come back again
          There's this waitress named Silindile, light skinned, she served me very well, I am coming back to wimpy just because of her service.

          Anticipation and excitement high! Thrilling to ride up relatively close to the animals. Great photos!
          Our transport there and back was great. Our driver was friendly, knowledgeable, and very safe. The first site of the facility increased our excitement. Beautiful place. Lunch was very tasty, everyone was polite and eager to assist. Our safari guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. Gave us lots of interesting information about the animals we saw. Though we did see lots of different animals, I wish there were more. However that didn’t dim the initial excitement. We all took lots of pictures and had a great time! It was a very good first safari!!!

          Wonderful staff, small reserve with limited animal quantities
          If you've never been on a game drive before, and/or are taking children, Aquila is great. Rustic lodge, good food, wonderful staff. If you've done a larger game drive/safari on a larger property, this may feel slightly underwhelming. It's always cool to see animals (and we did see hippos, giraffes eland, springbok, lions, elephants, baboons and zebra), but this has more of a feel of a conservation refuge (which it is) rather than seeing animals in the wild in their natural habitat. Kudos to staff for handing out blankets and ponchos, as we went on a rainy day!

          Great!
          Loved this experience. My friend is an animal lover and I am happy she got to experience this. We saw all of the animals and I was particularly excited to see the lions. We saw them all gathered together like a family. It was amazing.

          It was an amazing and wholesome experience to see those gorgeous animals up close (most of them). Lunch was wholesome too.

          Would love to go back!
          This was one of the highlights of our trip to Cape Town. We splurged a little bit and reserved a private safari vehicle and did not regret it. Our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable and explained things in a straight forward and fun way. We came so close to the lions we could almost reach out and touch them (although our guide gracefully reminded us to keep out hands inside the vehicle!). We hope to return one day and bring more friends and family with us.

          A great experience for the family
          This was a fine day out for our family, two of whom had never experienced a safari before. Our driver was prompt and courteous, and our guide was knowledgeable and fun. The lunch buffet was a bit chaotic, but otherwise perfectly satisfactory. That being said, it is a safari mill. They have it down to a science. That is fine, if you have not experienced a more comprehensive safari elsewhere in Africa. You will see animals, and you'll enjoy yourself. Our newbie guests loved it. If you only have one day to experience a safari, go for it. You will be satisfied. It's good value for money.

          Danger to life, but great views of the animals (read detail).
          The actual safari driver through the reserve is fantastic. Great guide, saw many animals, and felt safe throughout. However, the transport service provided by Aquila is a different matter. The driver collects from hotel/accom, and then there is a two hour drive to the location (and return later afternoon). The transport driver was dangerous. rarely had two hands on the wheel, often no hands, while he fiddled with phone, drink, music etc. Regularly 2 or 3 meters behind vehicle in front at fast speeds. Not smooth with braking, and insisted on "pumping the brakes" in time to the music several times. Many of the 10 passengers felt unsafe, and were glad to get out. I am an advanced-trained driver and i know what i'm talking about - this driver is a danger to life and unprofessional and should be sacked. Driving passengers is a big responsibility, and drivers should be regularly assessed - which clearly they are not at Aquila. Was also asked to sign a waiver form, and wass refused when i asked for a copy of the form. weird.

          Should have known better
          Disappointed. We chose Aquila as we wanted to have a safari experience and this was on our route back to Cape Town. The trip got off to a bad start as it was freezing cold and very windy and the bus was ten minutes late and all the staff had disappeared so we all cowered miserably trying to stay warm. When the bus did show we asked about the ponchos which reception had told us would be given out on the bus but none were available and the driver gave out some blankets which were grabbed by two women at the front of the bus leaving the children huddled and wet. The bus followed a rutted route past the animals which were clearly being fed so that they could be seen by the tourists. We got very limited amounts of information about the animals or conservation efforts (to be fair to the driver, it was clear everyone was freezing and wanted the trip to end). The lions were in a dismal patch of fenced off upland. Overall, we felt this was basically a large zoo and very different to the type of safari experiences that we’d previously had in South Africa (and wanted our kids to experience).

          What an amazing experience
          We were a bit reticent after some of the other reviews, but we had a great day. Our game reserve driver was good, too, and we felt safe in the truck. I'm not sure if the animals were fed before our drive, but we managed to see 4 of the big 5, as well as the many other animals there, and it was an amazing experience!!! Just remember, this isn't a national park. It is a reserve, but you still can't be guaranteed to see the animals. We were lucky, and I have some of the most amazing photos. Lunch wasn't great despite the various options, but we hadn't been well, so we ate little anyway and got snacks on the way. Bring plenty to drink as they aren't provided as part of lunch or get them when your driver does the pit stops. The complimentary wine was interesting. The journey there and back was longer than expected as we were 1st/last pick up, and the route was a bit uncomfortable at times, but the guide was very nice. And ge treated us to a stop with the rescued lion cub!!! Don't forget cash for tips for both drivers if you are happy with your experience.

          Best experience
          I came for a safari or two, and that is what I got. The morning safari was better than the late afternoon one as it was cooler and more animals were out and about. To be so close to magnificent wild animals is fantastic. Aquila itself was ok. The spa area was very relaxing, sun loungers around the pool comfortable and entertainment from the local monkeys trying their luck - sometimes quite comical watching the staff chase them away. The food was standard and a buffet. The room, however, wasn't the best. We had a funny smell on entry and, on further investigation, discovered dirty sanitary wear in the bathroom bin. Once emptied, the smell disappeared. There was way too much furniture, making it seem cluttered, and the bathroom door was opaque - you could see the outline of the person using it.

          Good game drives, horrible food, mass tourism.
          Good game drives, horrible food, mass tourism. The game drives were good traveling with 2 small kids. The guide was passionate and it was fun discovering the animals with him. The rest of the resort was not really enjoyable. The room was not cleaned properly (we found used underwear) and the food was disgusting.

          Fun Experience
          We had a great time at Aquila. This is the perfect experience if you want to get a taste of what a real safari could be like. It is on a preserve. But we did see all the animals including lions, rhinos, elephants and zebras. We really did have fun and our tour guide was knowledgeable and personable. The breakfast and lunch buffets included were fine. You will find something to eat if you choose to. I recommend this experience.

          Relaxing, big 5 and pretty place
          The guide was very friendly and happy to help and the day was planned out perfectly with a lovely lunch of fresh salad and other foods followed by a wonderful safari in which I was able to see 4/5 of the big 5. Aquila is a gorgeous place and I would definitely recommend visiting.

        We were so fortunate to have
        Tsholo, our Johannesburg guide from yesterday! He picked us up at our guest house and drove us to Pretoria while explaining the history along the way. The Voortrekker monument, the Union Building, Church Square and the Paul Kruger Museum were all fascinating. Tsholo is very knowledgeable, courteous and professional.
