Overview

Spend a full day at the Aquila Game Reserve, the closest one to Cape Town, on this safari tour. Get excited to see the ‘Big Five’ game animals and endangered species such as the ‘Aquila’ Black Eagle on this worry-free trip, which includes pickup at your Cape Town city center hotel. This is one of the easiest safari tours near Cape Town, on a private and malaria-free game reserve.
  • Safari day trip to Aquila Game Reserve from Cape Town
  • Spot South Africa’s Big Five animals on a game drive around this malaria-free private reserve
  • Lean about the reserve’s wild animals and birdlife from your game ranger guide
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included
Begin your day with a pickup at your central Cape Town hotel in an air-conditioned coach, and travel in comfort to the private and malaria-free Aquila Game Reserve in the midst of the southern Karoo semi-desert region.
Meet your guide and game ranger when you reach the reserve, and from there climb into an open-air safari vehicle to begin your game drive.
Learn about how the so-called ‘Big Five’ - African elephants, Cape buffaloes, lions, leopards and rhinos - got their nickname as you keep your eyes peeled for any sign of them as well as giraffes, hippos and other animals. The Aquila Game Reserve is particularly known for its abundant bird species, thanks in part to a large wetland area. There are over 170 species of birds that make their home in the park, including the endangered ‘Aquila’ Black Eagle from which the reserve takes its name.
At the end of your safari drive, return for lunch (included) and then meet up with your host once again for the drive back to Cape Town. Return to the city by late afternoon.

A lovely day out of the city to try and spot the big 5. The transfer from the hotel was very convenient and our guide at Aquila was very knowledgeable about all of the animals in the park. We saw elephants, giraffes, hippos, springbok, rhino, zebras and an added bonus was seeing the Elephants at the watering hole having a mud bath in the midday sun.

This is a great way to head on safari from Cape Town. Convenient pick-up from our hotel to drive down to Aquila where we had some time for lunch before our game drive. We were lucky enough to see 4 of the big 5 and our guide was very knowledgeable.

Great day out to see the Big 5 (4 in our case!). The Aquila reserve is beautiful and it was fantastic to get close to the elephants, rhinos and zebras. It is a bit of long drive from Cape Town but it was worth it after the afternoon we had.

Great tour! Convenient pick-up in Cape Town, comfortable drive to Aquila, delicious lunch, and amazing game drive! I would highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see African wildlife without travelling too far from the city.
Lovely setup with all the animals...

Lovely setup with all the animals you’d expect to see, the elephant charging our truck was the best put of the day the driver had to put his foot down to get away, managed to get it on film! Definitely worth a visit!

Excellent trip. The Park was such fun. We saw lions about 4ft from us, luckily looking well fed, zebra, ostrich, springbok, giraffe, elephants, baboons and wilderbeast. The guide Nickolas was excellent. Full of interesting facts, and answering questions fired at him by the passengers. The preceding lunch was of very high quality, and all in all would highly recommend this tour. The only negative was that there was a mix up at the start and passengers were not ready for pick up so we added 1.5hrs to the 2.5hr trip to the Game Teserve.

This was a really good excursion! Aquila Game Reserve is about two and a half hours drive in air-conditioned minibus from Cape Town that included a 15 min comfort break along the way. On arrival we were treated to a drink of sparkling wine or water, followed by a very good buffet lunch. The safari lasted over 2 hours and our driver/guide was excellent. During the safari, there was a stop along the way at a small open-air café with toilet facilities and another free drink! We saw lions, elephants, rhinos, zebras, hippos, giraffes, wildebeests, springboks....... Aquila is an excellent, well run, private game reserve and my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience!
