Big 5 Safari

A short 2 hour drive outside Cape Town, you’ll visit the 4 star Aquila Private Game Reserve in the Southern Karoo. The reserve is a 10,000 hectare conservancy, home to the big 5 legends of the wilderness - elephant, lion, buffalo, leopard and rhino.  Enjoy welcome drinks and breakfast upon arrival and then depart for a 2 to 3 hour safari in your choice of an open 4x4 safari vehicle, on horseback or on quad bikes! Enjoy a buffet lunch of South African food and catch some sun or have a drink next to the pool before returning to Cape Town.

A great emphasis is placed on a wildlife conservation education, offering visitors a complimentary educational introduction to their cheetahs. They are captive bred and strictly controlled in the interest of cheetah survival worldwide. Aquila is also the proud finalist of an Imvelo Award for their Social Involvement Programme. They provide over 300 jobs to the previously disadvantaged community of Touws River and also sponsors the local cricket, soccer and rugby teams as well as a full time school teacher.
