Description

The Aquila combo safari combines a 2 to 3 hour game drive in an open safari vehicle and a 1.5 horseback outride.

Take a day trip to Aquila Private Game Reserve and experience an open vehicle game drive with the opportunity to view elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino and leopard - as well as a significant amount of other wild game, which roam freely on the reserve. Have lunch at the lodge before going on a horseback safari.

A horseback safari is an alternative safari option to experiencing the natural wonders of Africa. Stalking game gets closer than ever when you're saddled-up and ready to ride. No experience is necessary for the Aquila horseback safari day tour.

This day trip safari requires that you arrive at Aquila at 9 am in the morning. The scheduled departure transfers leaving from Cape Town hotels between 6am and 7am in the morning (be sure to book this transfer beforehand).

The program includes a welcome drink, a scrumptious buffet breakfast, a 2-3 game drive, lunch and 1.5 hour horseback safari led by an experienced guide who will share exciting inside stories and facts about your surroundings, easily rousing your inner wild side.

Amazing overnight safari just 2 hrs away from Capetown, the accommodation was comfortable and clean and the buffets were tasty and rich. But now to the most important part, the wildlife: it was amazing to drive through the reserve with an experienced guide who led us right by the most dangerous animals known to hunters, the Big Five. For those interested in stars, especially coming over from the northern hemisphere, join the star safari in the evening - you will be amazed to see the Milky Way or gaze on Jupiter through a telescope.

Thank you Aquila Reserve for those two special days!

Would definitely recommend, lovely staff and great safaris. We did a horse back safari too and enjoyed it thoroughly. Food was the only thing holding it back from 5 stars, buffet style meals, some were cold. The morning views and sunsets were outstanding.

This is a family rating, individual scores between two and four. Easily accessible location 2 hours from Cape Town. Nice facilities, location, meals. Very nice pool area. We were in a premier Lodge room with a view over the bush. Very nice light, airy, comfortable. Generally an enjoyable weekend light bush experience.


This place is absolutely fantastic, however if you are expecting big safari with hoards of animals passing by in all directions, this is not a place for you, go to Serengeti or another big safari place.
This is sanctuary with rescued animals.
I spent two days here with my partner. We did two game drives, morning one and sunset one, with two different set of guides/drivers. All of them were amazing. Very knowledgeable, with passion and care for what they do, and animals they talk about.

Enjoyed seeing the animals and was ideal for the half day we had. We saw a lot of animals close up.

The food was good, and the home base is relaxing and we'll run.

I wasn't too much of a fan of going on a drive in benches with so many other people, while there was a pit stop right near the end - we could have done with some water for the short journey.

I prefer driving myself around and having more freedom. I also don't think I'd say here as I noted you couldn't light your own fire - and that's half the fun for me.
