Visiting a game reserve in the winter might seem extreme but there are a few good reasons to do so just because.

The cold Karoo night puts a grand show of bright and clear sky that is perfect to be enjoyed around the Boma, a traditional South African camp fire, with a warming drink between your palms.

The nice and cosy days encourage the Big 5 animals to roam around, giving you a better look, more chances to engage and better photo opportunities.

Tranquila, The Aquila spa consists of 10 treatment rooms and an indoor, lavish, heated pool which is open for free to visitors that stay for more than two nights. A happy place to spend the hours between the safari trips.

If you prefer it dry, an escalated bar and lounge, above the dining room, with a panoramic view over the game reserve is ideal for a relaxed reading and a drink.

Families with children enjoy Aquila’s Junior Ranger Program, indoor and outdoor kids play areas. While enjoying the Junior Ranger Programme, children will learn and discover new experiences and have unforgettable moments in the Karoo. The programme will stimulate their young minds and introduce them to some simple conservation practices.

The Aquila Junior Ranger Programme includes: Spoor identification, Animal dung identification, plants, trees, rocks and wildlife.

Over the lockdown period, wildlife at Aquila thrived. You can now see baby rhinos, a baby hippo and many other young in the herds and packs.
