We had an overnight stay at Aquila in Feb 2011. Unfortunately the advertising was way off what was provided and we found out later that the locals call it the 'tourist trap' and avoid it completely. The rooms were clean and tidy. The meals were provided via a buffet/canteen affair and there was no sign of the evening braai. the 'rangers' were not very communicative and just drove about pointing. Fantastically expensive and I would recommend that folks interested in visiting a game reserve should take a look at Londolozi or Phinda at a similar rate.
