We were picked up at 6am, Seapoint Cape Town. We booked this 2 day safari thro GetYourGuide which was with African Eagle Tours. Overall we really enjoyed the experience. Booking stated we'd have a Guide on transport to Inverdoorn but it was a driver. His sound system (in Toyota Quantum) was too loud so he didn't use it. It took 4 hrs..stopped 5mins for pics.. 30mins for breakfast..arrived at 10am. We relaxed for 2-3 hrs till our chalet was ready. good air con, clean & tidy. Then there's a buffet lunch. I bought special khaki coloured clothes but they weren't necessary. We went in February..eve safari was still hot but the morn one was a little chilly. The vehicle seats about 10. Take some binoculars. The eve safari for back a little late so we only had 15mins to getvready..but it's quite laid back so you don't have to dress up too much. We enjoyed the food. Had a choice of meat or fish for eve meal. Take insect repellent.
This was one of the best experiences of my life. Our tour guide JP is simply the best guide you could wish for on a tour like this. He made sure that we as guests were always happy, he was more than happy to answer all our questions regarding all these amazing animals that we saw on that weekend and also all our questions regarding this amazing country which I definitely plan on visiting again in the future. We saw all the animals that I at least wanted to see, including rhinos, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, elephants, water bucks, and of course lions! And all of them in a distance of 4-20 meters! It was fantastic! Thank you very much JP and Hotspots2c for providing me this experience! I will definitely do it again!
The safari itself was very good but it was a really long journey to the Lodge and the mini bus was very uncomfortable I felt the lodge rooms were tired and needed a refurbishment Also i dont think enough thought was given to the allocation of the rooms As a solo traveller i didnt appreciate being put up in one of the lodges which was a lonely dark walk from the main part of the hotel and very close to the carpark I really didnt feel safe here and so had a sleepless night. I did ask for a different room but the hotel werent able to give me one as were fully booked Our Ranger and tour guide were very good and knowledgeable
Absolute AMAZING. From start to finish the experience was excellent - I was staying with family in Camps Bay and they picked me up from my doorstep. The game reserve staff were friendly and informative. We saw so many wonderful animals and had lots of time to stop and look at them and take photos. The lunch was delicious as well. 10/10
It’s more like a huge zoo rather than a national park. That Also means you chances to see all the animals is high. We saw 4 of the 5 and had a great time. Guides were nice. Drive from vape town to Aquila is about 2.5 hours.
