Our Safari Day Tour offers a Private Game Reserve and luxury safari lodge, a two hour scenic drive via the N1 from Cape Town. It is located in the Touws River and Ceres region. Proclaimed a Private Nature Reserve in 1985, this 4 star, malaria free, 4, 500 hectare reserve is steeped in Khoi San and Boer War history and boasts 3 pristine biomes of vegetation set in the most magnificent Karoo mountains, valleys, rivers and kloofs.


The Reserve:
Having been proclaimed a Nature Reserve in 1985, the “veld” is in pristine condition, consisting of Renoster veld, Mountain Fynbos and Succulent vegetation types found in 3 beautiful valleys. Situated in the Karoo with it’s wide open spaces, the 4500 HA reserve has a natural wetland, magnificent mountains and valleys which makes for varied and ideal game viewing.

The reserve has 4 of the Big 5, Lion, Buffalo, Rhino and rare Mountain Leopard and is also home to Giraffe and Hippo.
The Reserve has 7 Lions at present, having been saved from the “canned hunting” trade. They are genetically linked to the Barbary Lion a close relative of the extinct Cape Mountain Lion.
Aquila is also proud to have the first Rhino to be born in the Western Cape in 200 years.

A natural wetland located on the property, is home to 172 species of birds and is also home to several breeding pairs of the rare and endangered Black Eagle, after which the Reserve has been named. Karoo chat, rufous-eared warbler, fairy flycatcher and yellow-bellied eremomela can be found on short walks into the surrounding wilderness.
Lark-like Bunting and Black-headed Canary move in after rain. In the summer months the Booted Eagle is a regular visitor and the rainy season attracts Flamingo’s to the Reserve
