Great experience. I think we saw 4 of the big 5 (no leopards) and would definitely recommend. Room was lovely, spa, tour guides and facilities were great and we have a very relaxing and unforgettable experience.

Good Afternoon Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. Our company however only offer Day trips to Aquila Private Game Reserve and not overnight accommodation. We therefore presume that you have booked the overnight stay directly with Aquila Private Game Reserve and that your feedback relate directly to the experience that you have had with the Aquila Private Game Reserve office?
