Aquila is an unmissable experience. An oasis in the Karoo. Luxury safari resort, with outdoor pool, firepit, large beautiful thatched spa and reception. Excellent food and kind staff make this a highly recommended safari.

Very interesting. The guide Taile was very good. Sunset safari was good because there was a lot of animals to see. A nice surprise was a lunch included in the price and a snack almost at the end in the mountains.

Fantastic tour with an amazing guide who was super knowledgeable. We saw all the Big 5 in all there glory amongst other fantastic animals. It is very well worth the money. Highly recommend.

Safari in a very large enclosure. Unfortunately we didn't see the Big 5 but at least 3 out of 5. Recommended for safari beginners.

We loved the whole experience! Can’t recommend enough
