No visit to South Africa is complete without taking a safari to a game reserve! Head to the Aquila Game Reserve on this easy day trip from Cape Town to spot giraffes, lions, leopards, zebras – you name it! The Aquila Game Reserve is the closest private game reserve to Cape Town, only a 90-minute drive away.

After an early morning departure you’ll reach the beautiful Aquila Game Reserve to be taken on a game drive by an experienced ranger. Optimal game viewing is ensured in open 4WD vehicles.

Giraffes, lions, leopards, springboks, zebras, black and blue wildebeest are just some of the wildlife inhabiting the reserve. There are also good opportunities to see crocodiles and, if you are very lucky, you might even spot the illusive mountain leopard.

Aquila Game Reserve has a large natural wetland and bird-watching opportunities are plentiful. It is home to over 170 species of birds, including the endangered black eagle which the reserve is named after.
