Trip Summary

Experience a real South African game drive on a private tour from Cape Town at the Aquila Private Game Reserve in Touwsriver. Venture into the wilderness by 4x4 vehicle and look for the "Big Five." Stop for a wine tasting on the Paarl wine route.

  • The pick-up for the morning game drive is at 06:30. Drive for about 2 hours until you reach Aquila Private Game Reserve in Touwsriver.
  • Upon arrival, enjoy a welcome drink in the foyer, followed by a full buffet breakfast (halal) with vegetarian options.

  • Look for wildlife in their natural habitat, including the so-called "Big Five" (African lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, African leopard and rhinoceros).
  • The area is rich with wildlife and your safari will allow you to experience nature at its most beautiful.
  • There are other adventure opportunities available for an additional cost, such as horseback rides or quad bike drives.
  • Once your safari game drive is over, you will be shown to the restaurant where a full buffet lunch will be waiting (halal and vegetarian options available).
