Aquila Private Game Reserve lies in a valley between the Langeberg and the Outeniqua Mountains, where the 10,000-hectare conservancy is home to the Big 5 – elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino, and leopard - as well as wild game. Dramatic Karoo landscapes make the reserve a vision of red and burnt orange hues, hills, pans, rock formations and desert-scapes.
Since the 4-star Aquila Private Game Reserve was founded, its ethos and that of our team of dedicated staff have been to educate guests on the importance of wildlife conservation, how it affects us all and what we as individuals can do to protect the environment.
Aquila is not only a luxury game reserve and lodge. Its primary purpose is to offer an educational experience to all who visit in the hope that knowledge will enrich our understanding of the importance of living in harmony with Mother Nature. Part of our family-friendly offering includes game drives with no age restriction, which allows every member of the family to experience the wild magic of Africa’s precious Big 5 animals.
We have many accommodation types for your family, from Premier Luxury Cottages with second bedrooms, through to our Family cottages, which can accommodate families of all shapes and sizes. Chat to reservations who will advise you which accommodation will suit your family best.
Activities for families with kids under 12
All children are allowed on game drives, which are included in your overnight rates, as long as they have adult supervision. In summer, children can also swim, enjoy our dedicated children’s area with a jungle gym, life-size chess, and an indoor play area. We also offer a Junior Ranger Program, which is currently included in our Winter Specials this year.
