ARC (Aquila Rehabilitation & Conservation Centre) is situated on a separate piece of land directly opposite the main entrance of Aquila Private Game Reserve. Aquila has donated the stretch of land to ARC and has also invested over R1 million building a large outdoor sanctuary comprising of several 1 hectare fenced camps where these once doomed “canned lions” can live out the remainder of their lives.
ARC is a non-profit section 21 company (No 2004/011009/08) and guests visiting Aquila are invited to visit the Centre free of charge.

Bookings are subject to availability. Availability does change by the hour. I would suggest you book and pay the deposit as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Our safari guides are very experienced, and have been with Aquila for quite a while. They try spotting as many of the Big 5, as well as other animals indigenous to the land, as possible. We do know that for many of our guests, to see the big 5 is a once in lifetime experience, hence we go the extra mile.
