Creating a Fun and Safe Environment for Kids

Welcome to Aquila Private Game Reserve & Spa, a family-friendly and inclusive Big 5 safari experience close to Cape Town, South Africa. We prioritise the enjoyment of a safari experience where the entire family (young and old) can learn about our conservation initiatives, see our incredible wildlife, and explore the reserve’s top safari activities. 

While we encourage families to make the most of their time at Aquila, we kindly request that those visiting with children show respect for other guests and follow certain protocols when using our restaurant facilities or embarking on a safari adventure.
