We visited Aquila 4 years ago and decided to come back with our daughter. It was good then but there have been significant improvements since, including better check-in and the addition of an indulgent spa (over 16's only). The number of animals in the reserve had also increased which made for a great game drive.

Memorable experience at Aquila. Loved the on site spa and facilities which was a nice touch. Super friendly staff who made us feel welcome and appreciated. Not quite a full safari experience as you might find in without borders, but a good option within reasonable distance from Cape Town if you are tight on time. It was a great option for little ones (two year old was with us) as you are pretty much guaranteed to see a variety of animals in a short period.
