    We booked a "family lodge", which turned out to be two rooms in an hotel!. Not at all what is pictured on the website. Visitors are driven to see the animals in big lorries. In the email we received, free access to the spa and heated swimming pool was promised. But on arrival the spa reception wanted money and the...

    We were 6 people for a package deal from Sat - Sunday, Aquilla is a lovely place, food were excellent, rooms neatly. But the management is not on a 4 star level It was quite fully booked. We went on a game drive, saw lots of animals. The truck's wheel was flat when the guide leave. We drive 2-3 hours,...

An easy two hour drive from Cape Town, it is situated on the edge of the Karoo. An attractive setting with 'faux' African rustic thatched architecture accommodation. It is attention to detail that is lacking and...

    A sham! The most expensive night in the Western Cape with TERRIBLE food and 'Game' in cages. Both the cheetahs and the leopard are in cages, and so is the warthog. The Crocs died last year in the cold. The lions are in an enclosure. While the drivers that escort you around the park are very friendly and helpful the...

    A lot of the previously written reviews highlight disappointment. To me, this place was great. It's all about expectations. This place does not package itself as Kreuger or the epitome of luxury. If you're coming from overseas and looking for your "African safari" experience, then this may not be your bag. It's a great drive from Cape Town, the surroundings...
