I am so in love with Aquila! CAN NOT WAIT until my next visit. It’s a little slice of heaven combining luxury, with wild life & deliciously prepared South African food. The staff, especially the game rangers are so friendly & eager to give info & answer questions. Between lunging at the pool which makes you feel, quite honestly like...
