The birth of safari from Cape Town
It could be argued that the concept of a “safari” was born in South Africa, with the primal roar of lion and leopard hungrily following a herd of impala or wildebeest so immense, at times it seems Cape Town itself is rumbling. The Aquila Game Lodge, the closest 1 day safari from Cape Town draws many travelers due to its top notch conservation, community and ethical ethos. . The park takes its name from the endangered black or verreaux eagle (Aquila verreauxii). Aquila’s story began in 1999 when its owner, Searl Derman, driven by a desire to share his passion for the wild with Cape Town, set about searching for the perfect piece of land to re-introduce the Big 5 to the Western Cape.
