Experiência incrível! A excursão parte bem cedo de Cape Town, cheguei no Aquila Safari próximo ao meio dia e tinha um almoço espetacular servido inclusivo no meu voucher. Após o almoço iniciamos o Safari, tirei fotos incríveis, o guia explicou tudo sobre cada animal, foi tudo perfeito!
Fiz vários passeios com a agência Springbok Atlas Tours & Safaris, motoristas educados e cautelosos, amei cada passeio! Super recomendo!

A 50th birthday of celebration, for 6, turned into a bitter remembrance, poor service lack of passion!!
The reserve offers si much, Staff remains glued to their mobile phones. Service remains extremely poor. Bar service
