Is there anything more exciting than spotting elephants as they munch on a few crunchy leaves? Or watch as a graceful lioness stalks her prey? There’s plenty to learn from Mother Nature, and with the school holidays in full swing, now is the perfect time to pack up the kids and head to Aquila Private Game Reserve and Spa for a little educational fun for the whole family.
Located just under 2 hours’ drive from the Mother City, this private game reserve offers incredible family-friendly stays with a variety of safari options, luxurious spa treatments and other exciting activities.
Not only are the kids guaranteed a fun time, but they’ll certainly be inspired while on traditional safari, while those over 16-years-old can venture out on horseback or a thrilling quad bike ride. Spotting the Big Five isn’t the only fun activity kids can enjoy, with the Kids Adventure Zone offering loads of entertainment – from giant chess to putt-putt golf – while youngsters can enrol in Aquila’s amazing Junior Ranger Programme.
While the kids have a bit of fun, Mom and Dad have the opportunity to relax and enjoy the relaxing views from Aquila’s Level Up bar and lounge. Their world-class spa includes an indoor heated pool and is a great add-on for adults wanting to unwind from the everyday stress of the city.
“School’s out! So why not get out?” is their motto, and their reduced lockdown rates will have you screaming it from the rooftops. Their generous PAY 2 – STAY 3 includes their lockdown offer of 30% off, but you also receive one night on them!
Overnight stays include lunch, dinner and breakfast per night and two game drives. Spend a chilly evening around the fire pit while roasting a few marshmallows – yum!
