    What a fun couple days at Aquila, we arrived to a beautiful buffet lunch before our sunset safari. Our guide was great and very patient with all the guests. Enjoyed a couple of drinks warming up by the open fire before a wholesome buffet dinner....

    My son and I were treated as family by every staff member at Aquila, which is why I extended our stay by one more night. Although we loved everyone, I must say that Sholeen, Peter, and Tim went above and beyond. I have to give my LOVE to Sholeen...
