Junior Ranger Programme

Become A Junior Ranger

Calling all young adventurers and junior safari guests! Aquila’s Junior Ranger Programme is an exciting opportunity for children (ages 4 to 12) to discover the wonders of South Africa’s Karoo wilderness, under 2 hours from Cape Town.

Led by experienced safari guides, this interactive outdoor experience (available at check-in for R250 per child) will teach your little explorer about the amazing animals that call Aquila home, as well as the importance of conservation. From learning to track lion spoor and elephant dung, to learning about native trees and the secrets of the reserve, children will have an exciting time finding animals, making new friends, and creating memories on this educational journey into the wild.

What’s Included in Aquila’s Junior Ranger Programme?

Children Are The Future Of Conservation

With a variety of fun and hands-on activities offered daily, our junior ranger programme fosters a unique appreciation for the natural world. From the smallest of insects to the mightiest of lions, the programme aims to inspire young hearts and minds with a newfound love and respect for South Africa’s endangered wildlife.

From tracking animals to learning about their habitats, your child will gain valuable insight into Aquila’s wildlife conservation efforts. They’ll learn about the importance of protecting wild animals, discover the incredible and unique biodiversity of South Africa, and they’ll even get the chance to make their own rock art in the style of the ancient Khoi San people. But the fun doesn’t stop there! Junior Rangers will also get to participate in a variety of other activities, including fire making, animal tracking, animal identification, and tree planting.
