Aquila Private Game Reserve, which is less than a two hour scenic drive via the N1 from Cape Town, is named after the rare and endangered Black Eagle that thrives in the area. Proclaimed a Private Nature Reserve in 1985, this four star, malaria free, 4,500 hectare reserve is steeped in Khoi San and Boer War history and boasts three pristine biomes of vegetation set in the most magnificent Karoo mountains, valleys, rivers and kloofs.
This short safari tour makes a great add on to any stay in Cape Town and will give you a great flavour of South Africa's great game parks. You will be picked up from your hotel in the city for the scenic drive to the Aquila Private Game Reserve. Check in and relax during the heat of the day before being taken on an evening safari. Then return to the reserve and enjoy dinner under the stars before spending a comfortable night in your cottage.
Enjoy an early morning game drive with the chance to see some or all of the Big Five - lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo, before returning to the reserve for breakfast. Then you will be picked up and driven back to your hotel in Cape Town. This safari tour is perfect for visitors to Cape Town who want to experience the thrills of a safari but don't have the time to spend longer in the bush and you can easily fit it in to the busiest of holiday schedules..
