Get up close and personal with Africa’s famous Big Five and other wild animals on our Full Day Safari Tour, a two and a half hour drive from Cape Town. As the Game Reserve is situated in the Western Cape, you will not need to worry about the risk of malaria. Enjoy some of the Cape’s most unique flora and fauna, beautiful landscapes and wildlife all in one day! The elephants and lions have all been rescued by the team at the reserve, after encountering a virtual wipe out due to settlement and agricultural development. You will also find the cheetah rescue and rehabilitation centre which was founded in 2001, home to numerous cheetahs.
Enjoy a two-hour safari tour across the 10 000 ha game reserve in an open air 4×4 discovering the Big Five. As you enter, you may come across a herd of antelope before heading down towards the lions’ reserve. You will be amazed by the majestic sight of the male Cape Barbary lion which is a rare find! From thereon you will encounter an endless variety of antelope species, from the beautifully marked oryx, elands, wildebeests, threatened rhinos, springboks and herds of zebras.
– This a full day safari tour and you will be picked up and drop off from your hotel.
Rise and shine, it’s time for an unforgettable Cape Town Safari experience! In order to ensure you get to experience the glorious Mother City’s beauty in full force, including her stunning sunrise & magnificent morning sky, we start our Cape Town safari a little earlier. This means an early morning pick-up from your hotel, but don’t worry, this memorable safari tour in the ever-beautiful and exciting Cape Town promises to be well worth the early rise! And the beautiful world-renowned Ceres Fruit Valley, that lies tucked away between sheltered mountains, is first on our list! While this charming Western Cape town has become famous for its export-quality fruit, it’s by no means it’s only claim to fame.
Featuring breath-taking, show-stopping scenery and a massive dose of warm Ceres hospitality, Ceres has crept its way into the hearts of locals and tourists alike. Home to scenic snowy mountains in the winter months, top wine tasting destinations on the lazy sunny days and exhilarating adventurous activities year-round, Ceres offers something for anyone, anytime!
The Western Cape’s Klein Karoo is widely known for its raw unapologetic beauty and largely untouched surroundings, making it another one of Cape Town’s spectacular natural gems. Surrounded on the north by the Swartberg, and on the south by the Langeberg and Outeniqua mountains, it’s no surprise that the magical Klein Karoo is known as one of the most beautiful regions in the Cape as well as one of its most popular travel destinations to date.
Boasting several charming and charismatic towns along the way, including Ladismith, Calitzdorp, De Rust, and well-known mission stations such as Zoar, Amalienstein, Barrydale, Dysselsdorp and Ceres, the Klein Karoo has a certain irresistible charm that’s hard to ignore. But besides all these incredible hidden gems, no tour through the beautiful Klein Karoo would be complete without a visit to the most glorious gem of them all, Inverdoorn – the next stop on this incredible safari tour in Cape Town!
The Aquila Game Reserve is located in the Klein Karoo, one of the most magnificent areas in the Western Cape, bounded on the North by the Swartberg (Black Mountain), and on the South by the Langeberg and Outeniqua mountain chains. The semi desert natural region was first explored by European settlers in the late 17th century, who came across only Khoisan people living in this dry area. (drive by)
