One of my fav experiences in South Africa was staying at @aquilasafaris in their premier luxury cottage that’s built in a rock on top of a hillside.

With complete privacy and amazing panoramic views of the reserve, I saw elephants, giraffes, ostriches, zebras and so many more animals from the luxury of my room.

This overnight experience included two safari expeditions, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, complimentary wine, access to the pool and spa, and an indoor and outdoor fireplace … perfect for an exclusive and romantic getaway.

Check out @aquilasafaris for an unforgettable wildlife experience, luxurious accommodation, amazing African hospitality, and responsible social conservation programs.
