Awesome. The tour was very professional and enjoyable experience and was well worth the money. We were served a very tasty breakfast and lunch whilst there. Our visit to the reserve itself proved insightful and all the animals were seen along with babies. I would definitely recommend to anyone with a short amount of time.

If you don't have time to go to a national park to see animals in the wild, this is the next best thing to do. Our driver to the game reserve was very good and informative. It is just over 2 hours from Cape Town, but the scenery is really pretty and takes you through wine growing areas. On the reserve we saw lots of animals including elephants, rhinos (plus baby), zebras, giraffe etc. The reserve greets one with sparkling wine and breakfast. After the safari, lunch is served - a really fabulous lunch. On the way back we stopped at an ostrich farm and had a tour, which included seeing 3-day old ostriches. I very much enjoyed the excursion and liked the fact that it was a small group.

Even though this was more or less a large fenced-in zoo, the place was great, and the food was excellent. I would like to see a place where the animals are in the "wild" habitat.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Aquila from Cape Town. We saw all of The Big 5, our driver was very knowledgable and we were even provided with blankets and ponchos for the unpredictable weather! The food provided at the Reserve (breakfast and lunch) was great, with a huge selection provided buffet style.

My wife and I had a great time at the reserve. We saw the big five up close and personal. Would definitely recommend to other family members and friends.

Lots of fauna to view in this reserve. I did not appreciate the driver for the tour tailgating most of the way on the return trip.

We only had a few days in Cape Town and wanted to see as much as possible. This tour gave us the opportunity to experience a game reserve within a couple of hours drive of Cape Town. Pick up arrangements worked well ( very early start! ) excellent breakfast provided on arrival at the reserve followed by approx 3 hour tour. Bit disappointed we didnt see giraffes but did see lots of other animals and quite close up. Lunch was provided, again good, before making the trio back to our hotel. Good value trip

The driver that collected us to the hotel and then took us to the game reserve didn't speak to us and tell us the timings of the day which was annoying as to begin with we felt that we were in the dark about where to go and what to do. The game reserve trip itself was excellent and breakfast and lunch was delicious.

An African safari was on my "bucket list". I was in Cape Town on business and only had 1 day. Aquila proved to be a very good option. We saw all but one of the big 5 without having to look very hard. The food at lunch was fine but there was no where to sit and the ostrich farm was an utter waste of time but overall a good day.
