Safari Tours At Aquila Game Reserve – What You Can Expect on this Safari Tour at Aquila Game Reserve –

Cape Town and South Africa wildlife conservation is one of the best managed on the continent. Just 2 hours away from Cape Town at a distance of 175,7 Km, in the little Karoo, lies Aquila Game Reserve, one of the best educational Game Reserves, where one could easily spot the big five animals of South Africa and other species in a malaria free Region. Cape Town has quite a few Wildlife Tours to offer in a day trip, but Aquila Safari day Tour has been voted by travelers as the best way of doing a private safari in a day trip from Cape Town. Do not expect to see big herds of animals like in our national parks such as Kruger and Addo, but rest assured that your Ranger will explore all avenues to make sure that you see the animals. Available at an additional cost, you can do a private safari on horseback, quad bike or a private truck. You have a choice of either morning or afternoon Aquila Safari Tours.

Proposed and Custom Itinerary

Thank you for choosing to explore Cape Town, South Africa’s oldest city Wildlife Safari day trip with us.

All foods served at the reserve are halal and no pork products are used. Hereafter will join a small group of approximately 12 people on the truck where you will spend two to three hours with your game rangers searching for wildlife. Should you require to be just you and your party in the truck alone, kindly speak with one of our consultants about this option as it can be arranged at an additional cost.
