Aquila Safaris, South Africa

The Big Five and more than 170 bird species make a trip to the reserve a truly remarkable wildlife experience.

The Game Reserve is named after the black eagle that inhabits the area, one characteristic that makes it a delight for enthusiastic bird watchers. Covering a massive 4500-hectares of lush Southern Karoo vegetation, the Game Reserve has proved an optimal habitat for relocated and rehabilitated animals. The Reserve also has a cheetah and separate lion enclosure, who were all rescued from canned hunting.

The Touwsriver community project is an important initiative that supports the nearby community by educating locals an providing soup kitchens to feed the hungry. A recycling program is also offered to enable the people of the Touwsriver community to become socially responsible while protecting their environment and earning money.
