Collection from your hotel or airbnb.
Stay Amazing will collect you from your airbnb and you’ll be transferred to the Aquila Game Reserve which is a 2.5 hr drive via vineyards, orchards and magnificent scenery. You will be welcomed to the reserve with a chilled drink before being ushered through to the restaurant for a buffet breakfast. At approximately 10:15am you depart on a 2 to 3-hour open vehicle game drive through the reserve.
Having been proclaimed a nature reserve in 1985, the veld (terrain) is in pristine condition, consisting of Renoster veld, Mountain Fynbos and succulent vegetation types found in 3 beautiful valleys. Situated in the Karoo with its wide-open spaces, the 4,500 hectare reserve has a natural wetland and is protected by majestic mountains and valleys which makes for varied and ideal game viewing.
Be on the look out for lions, elephant, buffalo, rhino, as well as giraffe and hippo and other herd game such as Black Wildebeest and Burchells Zebra as well as various antelope species.
The natural wetland is home to 172 species of birds and is also home to several breeding pairs of the rare and endangered black eagle, after which the reserve has been named. You will then have the opportunity to visit the ARC rehabilitation centre, where you will learn a bit more about the rescue and rehabilitation efforts of the reserve. After a delicious buffet lunch at the lodges main restaurant, enjoy some time at leisure before starting your journey back to Cape Town. The tour ends with drop off back at your airbnb in the early evening.
