Aquila Children's Policy

Aquila Children's Policy

Aquila Private Game Reserve & spa is a family friendly and accepting safari destination situated just outside of Cape Town. We believe in the family enjoyment of a holiday and city escape where the entire family – young and old – can learn about or conservation projects and experience wildlife activities. 

We do ask that families visiting with children respect the other guests while at Aquila Private Game Reserve and observe certain protocol while using the restaurant facilities or while on safari.

Aquila is a malaria-free reserve and makes for a perfectly safe family stay.

Children get to enjoy the wide open spaces of the communal grass area, or they can spend some time at the Kids Adventure Zone with a variety of activities to keep them busy for hours. A childminding service can also be arranged at an additional fee – to ensure a safe stay for children while the parents get to relax and enjoy the facilities and services at Aquila.
