The tour departs at 06h45 from your Cape Town city hotel or lodging and heads east towards the Karoo region. After a comfortable two-hour journey, you reach Aquila Private Game Reserve.
Situated near the historic town of Touws River, in a valley between the Langeberg and the Outeniqua Mountains in the Karoo, the 10,000 hectare conservancy has evolved from its early days of being residence to various antelope species only, to becoming the home of the famous Big 5 – elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino and leopard – as well as a significant amount of other wild game, which roam freely on the reserve.
A welcome drink will await you on arrival followed by a scrumptious buffet breakfast before starting the game drive at 10h15. You’ll be transported in an open-top game viewing vehicle for a 2 to 3 hour long professionally guided tour. After the mini safari, you will be treated to a leisurely buffet lunch. It is advisable to bring a bather and take a dip in the beautiful pool overlooking the reserve after lunch.
Once you’ve had your swim and lazed around the pool waiting for your lunch to settle in, you will be transported back to Cape Town, through the Hex river valley, the beautiful Du Toitskloof mountains and the 4 km long Huguenot tunnel. Once through the tunnel, you will see the majestic Table Mountain in the far distance.
This is a full day tour, and you will only get back to your hotel around 5 o’clock. It will be one of the most memorable days’s on your visit to Cape Town in South Africa.
