Aquila Game Reserve

Aquila Game Reserve has two large swimming pools, each with a pool bar overlooking the reserve. There are large dining areas, and cosy cigar bars and lounges. Aquila has a library, curio shop and children’s entertainment area.

Aquila Game Reserve is the closest private game reserve to Cape Town, being a short drive from the city. Aquila is located in the historic Touws River town, in a valley between the Langeberg and the Outeniqua Mountains in the Karoo.

Karoo

The Karoo is on the national garden route. Setting the scene are spellbinding landscapes, carpets of wild flowers and wildlife. It is a place of wide spaces, immense horizons, craggy mountain ranges, jutting hills, an ancient seabed, and a massive clear sky at night.

Cape Town

Aquila Game Reserve is recognized as a major Cape Town tourist attraction. Aquila has been published in the “World’s 21 favourite things to do in Cape Town,” and considered one of the top 10 daytrip destinations by Sawubona Magazine.
Aquila offers a wide variety of safaris - day trip safaris, horseback safaris, quad bike safari, overnight and fly-in safaris. There are other activities on offer like 4 x 4 trails, fishing and themed weekend breakaways.

Aquila Private Game Reserve has gone to massive efforts and expense to source and re-introduce wildlife into the Cape region. A great emphasis is placed on a wildlife conservation educational experience. Aquila offers visitors a complimentary educational introduction to our cheetahs. Cheetahs are captive bred and strictly controlled in the interest of cheetah survival worldwide.

Social Responsibility

Aquila is the proud finalist of an Imvelo Award for our Social Involvement Programme. Aquila provides over 300 jobs to the previously disadvantaged community of Touws River. Aquila also sponsors the local cricket,soccer and rugby teams as well as a full time school teacher. Over the past 4 years, Aquila has invested a staggering amount into the Reserve and in doing so has been in a position to benefit the local community.
