Aquila Private Game Reserve and Spa

Embark on a memorable wildlife adventure at Aquila Private Game Reserve and Spa, an enchanting family-friendly lodge that’s just under two-hours’ drive from the bustling streets of Cape Town. Tucked away in a sprawling 10,000-hectare conservancy, Aquila is the proud abode of Africa’s famous Big 5: elephants, lions, leopards, buffalo, and rhinos.

Aquila is renowned for its superb day trips and overnight stays that promise a complete safari immersion. Guests are treated to a tapestry of culinary delights with two expansive dining venues that serve a medley of local dishes and signature South African sweet treats.

Adventure seekers can elevate their experience by partaking in an exhilarating horseback safari or the pulse-quickening quad bike safari. These excursions allow visitors to blend adventure with animal sightings, all the while gaining insights from guides about the Big 5 and the rich tapestry of the Karoo landscape. Take a journey through our lauded Eco Synergy project with daily tours that showcase sustainable practices benefiting our environment and supporting the local community.

Accommodation at Aquila is an affair of elegance and authenticity, with welcome drinks, sumptuous meals, and two game drives included. The accommodations range from rustic cottages with open-air rock showers to contemporary lodge rooms that frame the breath-taking views of the reserve. The evening hours offer solace in the exclusive bar and lounge area where the Karoo sunset paints the sky.

Aquila’s sprawling infinity pool and adjacent wet bar offer a refreshing oasis where guests can sip on chilled beverages. Complementing the indulgences is the Tranquila Spa, a retreat of relaxation offering an array of African spa treatments, alongside a heated indoor pool, sauna, and steam room, enveloping guests in the ultimate serenity.

Families will find a haven at Aquila, with a vibrant children’s play area and the exciting Junior Ranger Programme, which allows the young ones to engage in the wild, learn from nature, and become budding conservationists.

As dusk falls, the fire pit becomes a hub of camaraderie, where safari tales are exchanged under a glittering Karoo sky. The nightly stargazing sessions, complete with a star-guide and telescopes, reveal the celestial wonders of the Milky Way.

For a Big 5 Safari that’s conveniently close to Cape Town, Aquila stands unmatched. Your journey into the wild awaits.
