Aquila Private Game Reserve
Touws River, Breede River Valley - Accommodation
ESTABLISHMENT OVERVIEW:When searching for accommodation in Touws Rivier it is the Aquila Private Game Reserve that serenades and entices with landscapes as thought inspiring as a Picasso and carpets that are perfectly airbrushed and propped with wild life. A 2 hours drive from the city draws you in like a pendulum to steep roads, towering the glorious Mountains of Outeniqua in the Klein Karoo. There, the 4 star graded Aquila Private Game Reserve is comfortable wedged.
Making Mother Nature a personal matter
All the efforts of this African inspired Cape Town Lodge are geared towards the preservation of nature and all the wildlife in South Africa. Guests are always inspired to be conscious of their environment and challenged to recognize the importance of knowing and broadening their understanding regarding eco-friendliness. Going and staying green is very much a large part of Aquila's ethos and overall objectives. For this endeavour the game reserve employs expeditions and programmes such as cheetah conservation programmes, giving you a very personal, one- on-one encounter with Mother Nature.
Accommodation inspired by Africa
Keeping with the "˜Nature' themes the Game Reserve in the Cape does not stray from this theme when it comes to their decor. The Premier, family and Luxury chalets all capture the essence of nature with dark brown hues and earthy tones with precise attention to detail. The rooms have showers and fire places each simplistic yet artistic in its design.
The African inspired dining area further extends the great African spirit of Ubuntu without being offensive. Two small dining areas crackle with log fire places and smoky cigar bars provide a lax environment to unwind while the 2 ocean blue pools with swimming pool bars steals you an aerial view of the whole reserve.
With the Big 5 prancing around this Game Reserve in Cape Town, Aquila guests rarely have a reason to stay indoors. The meandering sunsets of Aquila can be easily soaked in while the library and children's entertainment area distracts those who dare. This accommodation in Touws Rivier is a must see when visiting Cape Town.
