Experience a real South African game drive on a private tour from Cape Town at the Aquila Private Game Reserve in Touwsriver. Venture into the wilderness by 4x4 vehicle and look for the "Big Five." Stop for a wine tasting on the Paarl wine route.
What to Expect
Following pick-up from your hotel or guest house in Cape Town at a pre-agreed time, travel by luxury Mercedes Benz C-class or Hyundai H1 for the start of your private safari tour. You can choose between a morning or afternoon game drive. The pick-up for the morning game drive is at approximately 06:30, while the pick-up for the afternoon game drive is at approximately 09:30.
Drive for about 2 hours until you reach Aquila Private Game Reserve in Touwsriver. Upon arrival, enjoy a welcome drink in the foyer, followed by a full buffet breakfast (halal) with vegetarian options. Then, board an open-top 4x4 safari truck and take a 2- to 3-hour safari game drive. Look for wildlife in their natural habitat, including the so-called "Big Five" (African lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, African leopard and rhinoceros). The area is rich with wildlife and your safari will allow you to experience nature at its most beautiful.
There are other adventure opportunities available for an additional cost, such as horseback rides or quad bike drives. Once your safari game drive is over, you will be shown to the restaurant where a full buffet lunch will be waiting (halal and vegetarian options available). Afterwards, you are free to relax in the bar lounge or enjoy a dip in the lodge’s swimming pool.
Then, head back towards Cape Town and stop en route for a wine tasting. You will have the choice of 2 complimentary wine tastings on the Paarl wine route. Enjoy a cheese and wine tasting from a choice of 3 different wine ranges at the Fairview wine estate.
Alternatively, pair wines with biltong (dried, cured meat) at the Marianne wine estate. The Marianne winery believes that biltong enhances the flavors of their red wines. Their award-winning Floreal red blend was hand picked by Gordon Ramsay and served at former President Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday dinner.
Continue towards Cape Town and benefit from drop off at your hotel or guest house or at a restaurant for dinner if you prefer.
