    Great scenery on the way and at the park. The animals were not as wild as the other park so this why the photos you see of the animals are really close. Aquila is very commercialised. The park drive is excellent but arrival and lunch is very chaotic.

    Thoroughly enjoyable experience. It is great for people who would like to see at least 4 out of 5 of the big 5s and our tour guide was amazing. He gave us enough time on both side of the vehicle (when possible) to look at the animals. We spent plenty of time out there, saw a lot of animals. Lunch is included and it was a decent meal. Staff at the reserve was friendly and polite, also very helpful. Both guys who picked us up and dropped us off were amazing, very knowledgeable, chatty (when you want to talk), polite and friendly. It was an unmissable experience and definitely recommend anyone to do it. Also, the guys at Get Your Guide was very helpful in confirming the pickup point.

    It was good! The Safari in general was good. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we felt safe. The transfers are long :-( we got picked up first and then dropped off last. We didn’t get back to our hotel until 730pm because of this. We didn’t think it was fair being the first picked up! However the driver in general was a very wonderful man! The food at the Safari was terrible. Terrible choices and just really rebbish food!! So we was very hungry!
