Aquila Private Game Reserve

Aquila Private Game Reserve

The Aquila Private Game Reserve is named after the black eagle that inhabits the area, one characteristic that makes it a delight for enthusiastic bird watchers. Covering a massive 4500-hectares of lush Southern Karoo vegetation, the Game Reserve has proved an optimal habitat for relocated and rehabilitated animals. The Reserve also has a cheetah and separate lion enclosure, who were all rescued from canned hunting. Whilst on a South African safari with us, we like to educate our clients whilst visiting Aquila Private Game Reserve & Spa, not only about wildlife and conservation, but also about the Reserve’s active involvement in community upliftment projects. The Touwsriver community project is an important initiative that supports the nearby community by educating locals an providing soup kitchens to feed the hungry. A recycling program is also offered to enable the people of the Touwsriver community to become socially responsible while protecting their environment and earning money.

There is a wide variety of animals to be viewed in the Reserve, including the Big Five, 172 species of bird, zebras, hippos, crocodiles, black eagles and flamingos. Situated on the flower route, travellers to the Reserve can also witness the flowers carpets that cover this part of the Cape between the July and September months.
