Aquila Pri­vate Game Re­serve & Spa is named af­ter the rare and en­dan­gered res­i­dent Black Ea­gle and boasts a breath­tak­ing 10 000-hectare South­ern Karoo con­ser­vancy. For the first time in 250 years, you can now ex­pe­ri­ence a day or overnight sa­fari un­der two hours from Cape Town and en­joy a game drive among lions and other mem­bers of the ma­jes­tic Big Five (as well as a va­ri­ety of sa­fari wildlife), where these mag­nif­i­cent crea­tures once again roam the Karoo moun­tains, val­leys, rivers and kloofs. The re­serve is set in the Cape’s fa­mous malaria-free Fyn­bos and Suc­cu­lent Karoo as well as ex­tremely rare renos­ter­veld veg­e­ta­tion that was once the favourite hunt­ing grounds of the an­cient Khoisan hunter-gath­er­ers.

Ac­claimed for ser­vice ex­cel­lence, re­new­able en­ergy, so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity ef­forts and con­ser­va­tion pro­grammes, 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.


The win­ners of this prize will en­joy ac­com­mo­da­tion in the Fam­ily Lux­ury Cot­tages, which are semide­tached and sit­u­ated in close prox­im­ity to the chil­dren’s play area. Units are equipped with tea and cof­fee mak­ing fa­cil­i­ties and fea­ture in­door fire­places for that ex­tra bit of warmth and cosi­ness in the colder months. They are un­der thatch and fea­ture ex­te­rior stone work us­ing raw ma­te­ri­als from the area. Chil­dren sleep tucked away un­der the eaves in a charm­ing loft area over­look­ing the main bed­room.
