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 game reserve in a malaria-free area.
  • Safari day trip to Aquila Game Reserve from Cape Town
  • Spot South Africa’s Big Five animals on a game drive around this 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.

Was an excellent trip just a shame we only saw 4 of the 5 .. but the elephant following our truck made up it and a bonus was seeing the baby Rhino

A hot day in Aquila

The driver was good, looked after us well. Lunch from buffet was included at the resort was nice. A long way in a van with small seats was not very conveniant, it took 3,5h as we were among the first ones to be picked up. But there was a short break halfways. We had to call the night before to get the pickup time from our hotel as we were not contacted as said in the confirmation. The animals were feeded so we saw a lot of them, felt sorry for the lions having no shadow.

We had a good day out spending about 2 and a half to 3 hours in the reserve where we saw a lot of different animals including Lions, Hippos, Rhinos and Elephants along with others. This was preceded by a nice buffet lunch at the Lodge prior to going out in the Safari vehicle. Took a lot of nice pictures of the animals. Well recommended.

Although a long drive to the reserve, it was worth it. The guide/driver was a local who knew much about the local history. The game lodge was beautiful, the lunch excellent and the game drive was enriching with a knowledgeable guide who knows and cares much about the animals.

Day Safari from Cape Town

It was a great day trip from Cape Town. We managed to see Ostrich, Springboks, Hippos, Rhinos, Lion. Having been on safari in Kenya a number of years ago, it is not comparable with the Kenyan Safari experience.

We had plenty of time to get to Aquila, the pickup was very helpful. Stopped for snacks along the way, had a welcome drink and a delicious lunch once we reached Aquila. Then, we were off for about 2.5 hours where we saw 4/5 of the Big 5. Return trip was quiet since we were all tuckered out, but again being dropped off right at our hotel was very helpful.
