Aquila Game Reserve attracts attention like a magnet - intimate wildlife safaris, cool-off dips in natural rock pools, bare-it-all outdoor showers, and private luxury chalets.
Aquila Game Reserve is a four star establishment and boasts all the features associated with an exceptional safari lodge. The reserve is 7500 hectare conservancy in the southern Karoo, and home to the big 5 legends of the wilderness. Elephant, lion, buffalo, leopard and rhino, synonymous with Africa, roam the outskirts.
Aquila Game Reserve offers traditional game drives, safaris on horseback, quad biking, 4 x 4 mountain trails, golf and cherry picking in the valley.
Visited by Paris Hilton and Kian from Westlife, published in the, “World’s 21 favourite things to do in Cape Town,” and considered one of the top 10 daytrip destinations by Sawabona Magazine, Aquila Game Reserve is a major Cape Town tourist attraction.
Aquila has two large swimming pools, each with a pool bar, overlooking the reserve. There is a large African-style dining area, and two smaller dining areas - all with blazing log fires and smoky cigar bars. There is also a library, curio shop and children’s entertainment area.
