Aquila offers a Big 5 Safari and Spa experience just under two hours from Cape Town. This is real Africa, real close to Cape Town. Acclaimed for service excellence, renewable energy, social responsibility efforts, and conservation programs, Aquila is more than just an unforgettable wildlife experience, it is an experience in luxurious African hospitality, traditional culinary delights, service excellence, and the restoration of pride to the indigenous people and the land.
Aquila offers the perfect room for everyone and every budget for a relaxing overnight stay.
The lodge accommodation is conveniently located next to the restaurant and mezzanine bar with access by stairs and lift. The Standard Lodge Rooms offer a comfortable and basic overnight stay with an en suite shower. These rooms are designed for easy-going travellers on a budget and have no view of the reserve. The premier lodge rooms are spacious and pleasant while they offer magnificent views of the reserve. Guests can relax and enjoy unforgettable sunsets from the balcony or patio. The Premier Lodge Rooms are furnished with a useful sleeper couch for afternoon leisure time or can accommodate one child for an overnight stay. The rooms offer en suite bath and shower facilities with reserve views from the bath.
Aquila also offers Karoo-style cottages. The cottages offer a unique and rustic feel with small additions like an indoor fireplace, outdoor shower, corner bath, and small patio. The cottages are aligned with the reserve and situated on a dry Karoo river bed. Walkways from the main safari lodge area and restaurant give these cottages a personal feel with ease of access to communal services and facilities.
The family luxury cottages are semi-detached and offer an intimate family safari experience. The rooms have stone and thatch finishes with patios opening up onto the wide-open space lawns of the main lodge area. The rooms are in close proximity to the children’s adventure zone while children sleep tucked away under the eaves in a charming loft area overlooking the main bedroom below.
Finally, the Premier Cottages offer a rustic Karoo overnight safari experience with the units privately positioned on the hillside – built in harmony with the rock – which is the focal point in the large bathrooms and alfresco showers. These cottages also offer a private wood deck patio with amazing panoramic reserve views while guests enjoy unforgettable Karoo sunsets.
