Professional check-in with a welcome drink. Nice ambience and very clean. The tour even started a little earlier because of the weather conditions. Our guide had a lot of interesting information for us and spoke a super understandable English. Except for leopards, we were able to see all the "big five" and many other animals as well. While the environment is not entirely species-appropriate for some animals, they appear to be doing well and we loved being able to offer something like this in this corner of South Africa.

I've been to Addo Park before, but I loved the Aquila too. You can see all the big animals, which is associated with a lot more luck in the Addo. We did the sunset safari and wish we had just arrived in the morning so we could chill a little longer in the free pool. The facility is beautiful, the safari guide Steven did a great job, we were very satisfied. Thanks!

Although it is a small safari park, it is still very worth seeing. The ranchers pass on very interesting knowledge and are friendly and nice. We went with the guide Rendle and had a lot of fun. We were lucky that there were only four of us in the vehicle .Rendle was able to answer all questions.

Were there from 2:45 p.m., on site it was said that we could help ourselves at the buffet and the safari started at 4 p.m. You could also use the pool until then and the safari itself was great. Saw 4 of the Big 5 and made a refreshment stop halfway through with water and other refreshments.

Great trip for a very good price. Before the Safari there is even a huge food buffet inclusive and during the safari you get free drinks. Really great experience, thank you!
