The Aquila Game Reserve is situated in the Southern Karoo, only 2 hours’ drive from Cape Town, making it the closest private game reserve to the city and an ideal excursion for those who are not visiting one of South Africa’s famous wildlife reserves further away. A beautiful setting in a valley between the Langeberg and the Outeniqua Mountains, the Aquila Game Reserve is home to the Big 5 (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo) as well as hippo, giraffe, buck and over 170 different species of bird.
You will be taken to the Aquila Game Reserve from Cape Town and served with welcome drinks, followed by a buffet breakfast. The highlights of the trip will include a game drive and visit to ARC (Animal Rescue Centre), followed by a buffet lunch. You will be given the opportunity to relax at the pool and browse the curio shop before returning to Cape Town.
