I went on a day trip from Cape Town, leaving my hotel at just after six a.m. The trip to Aquila was comfortable, with a stop for coffee and souveneirs. The resort itself is great, the thatched roofs, wooden beams, well kept garden etc. cannot be faulted. The food was good and the staff polite and knowledgeable. The transport was not as uncomfortable as expected, the guide called it an "African Massage". The safari started about 10 a.m. We were able to see many animals including Rhinos, Elephants, Buffalo, Wildebeest, Warthog, Springbok, Eland etc. The "cats" were not active at that time, which was disappointing. The safari finished at about 12-30, when lunch was available. I am not one for lounging aroud the pool, I found the wait for the return bus, 3 hours, extremely long and boring. I would have liked other organised activities, perhaps a trip to a local vineyard or local craft shop. In my opinion it was worth going for the animal I saw and photographed.

Cool safari tour with the most important animals

The tour was really cool and interesting. The Safari Park was very large and not overcrowded with animals. We saw different animals in individual areas. There were even lions a few meters from us. And the breakfast and lunch buffet was really worth it. Overall, the tour is recommended!

Guide Max was informative and engaging

Thanks for an amazing day Max. Seeing the elephant so close was the highlight of the trip. Felt the restaurant was too busy and for cost of the trip soft drinks should have been included in the price.
